Thank you to Hank Phillippi Ryan for sending me an ARC of this book, in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I rate this a 4 out of 5 Stars.
For people like me, who were/are glued to the t.v. regarding news like Casey Anthony, Andrea Yates, Susan Smith, and the like. This book was very much pulled from the headlines, and I saw a lot of similarities to the above mentioned women and what they’ve done to their children, or in the case of Casey Anthony, what she got away with.
This book was so gripping and fascinating, reading about Ashlyn, I felt like I was losing my mind, her character had me feeling so strung out, I couldn’t figure out if I believed her, or if I knew 100% that she was lying. Superb writing. I enjoyed the entire feel of this book, the twists, the turns, the “and the plot thickens” feel to it. I honestly felt like I was reading a documentary/Broadcast. Very cool book, and a really amazing Author. I loved all the characters in the book, I appreciated that in their own way, they were all very much unreliable, in the sense you questioned them, what were they really out for. I really liked Mercer, I feel like she was a genuine character, she was trying to overcome a tragedy, and to focus on something else in her life. Getting caught up in the whirlwind of this case was both helpful and detrimental to her.
If you guys haven’t spoken with Hank P. Ryan than change that, she is one of the friendliest Authors I’ve come across, and that makes enjoying her book that much better!
