Welcome to the dark, chilling and vicious world of Jane Harris.
This book has so much to recommend itself… for me, the hook was the unreliable narrator. I love books where the reader is constantly on edge because we aren’t sure if the narrator is lying or not and with this book the authors executed it flawlessly! The plot itself was cleaver and there were so many twists that had me on edge throughout the novel. When I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about it. Thank you NetGalley and Graydon House publishing for an advanced copy of the book.
