Thank you Rea Frey and St. Martin’s Press for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 5 out of 5 Stars.
Rea Frey, the amount of talent you have is astounding. I was lucky enough to be able to review “NOT HER DAUGHTER” and absolutely fell in love with it, so as soon as I saw Rea was writing another book, I knew I had to have it. This book I love just as equally, if not more than NHD.
First off, let’s start with the Note From The Author, Rea starts off this book with her own personal story, and when I read it, my first thought was “wow” I sent her a message, and I thanked her for her honesty, and for making herself very relatable to some of her readers. Make sure you read it!
I loved everyone, I loved that every single character was unreliable in one way or another. I didn’t know who to trust, and I felt like my head was spinning trying to keep up with them. (In the best way possible). I loved he formatting, the Parts 1, 2, 3, the alternating characters, the alternating between past, and present. The insights you get to Lee, Grace, and Noah. It was quite literally the best guessing game I have ever played. This was like a puzzle, and I had the pleasure of piecing this incredible story together.
There was so much complexity to this story, it wasn’t just a simple read. Everyone had a tragic, dark history, and even saying that, once I got to the end, I was completely blindsided, I was for sure I had it figured out, I had even messaged Rea and told her my guess. Happy to say, I was way off course! I am so happy that the ending was so mind blowing, and nothing I could have ever predicted.
When you read other reviews, stating this book is Compulsive, edge of your seat, twisted, evil, dark, creative, intense, thrill ride, atmospheric, etc. It is all of that, and so much more. It is dark, and delicious, heart breaking, and perfect, I LOVED EVERY. SINGLE. PAGE.
This book is on sale August 6th, at your favorite Book Store.
