3 Stars

This book was okay. I didn’t care about either first person character. The only thing that got me to the end of this book was the why of it all. Why was Nicky doing this? Why was she stalking Isabel?

We see things from both Nicky’s and Isabel’s point of view. And when things go missing from Isabel’s apartment, I wasn’t sure why the taking of the objects wasn’t shown since we learn later it was Nicky. For a time I considered that Iain was just messing with Isabel. Some of their motivations seemed questionable. 

Nothing rang true with any of the characters, I’m sorry to say. I thought this could have been a great book but it all fell flat for me.


I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
