(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I should have expected it, but this book was much darker than I originally thought. That’s possibly due to the fact that was an awful lot of abuse going on that was involving underage characters…
I liked the family aspect of this book and that Rachel was trying to find her sister. I was a bit confused about why Olivia was doing all of the things she did, though. I felt the author didn’t go into enough detail about why she had such a secret life.
The parts of the book that were in the POV of the killer were scary and creepy… but when he appeared in person, I felt that a lot of the creepiness was lost. I wasn’t actually sure who he was when his identity was revealed.
I wasn’t really sure what the title had to do with the book itself, though I did like the fact that it was explained. I just wasn’t completely sure what relevance the title had to the plot and I felt it could have been utilised a bit better.
I really liked how accepting Rachel was of Olivia’s twin. It was a really nice thing that the sister bond came through so well, even though the rest of the family relationships weren’t as detailed as they could have been.
Quite a few of the scenes did make me cringe, especially when it came to the bidding ones. It was interesting that the author didn’t describe all of the horrible things. I’m of the opinion that less is often more, but I do have a rather overactive imagination…
I found myself avidly reading this book to see what would happen next. I would definitely read more books by this author in the future.
