This story has everything needed for a perfect plot: poor, drowning in debt young girl desperate for an extra income. Rich family with a dirty little secret.
From the beginning of the book, I was very confused why the family has hired some random girl with no experience to care for neither a child nor an unstable adult. This fact bothered me so much throughout the book. I was hoping an author will have a good explanation at the end of the book… and she did. Everything made sense as the end. And even more… Just when I almost gave up on the story and thought – here we go, yet another sappy unrealistic happy ending. And BAM, Georgine Cross surprised me again. I literally applauded at the end of the last chapter. Way to go! In my reading experience – it’s hard to come across a good, strong, not-so-happy but satisfying closure at the end of the novel.
I read a lot of books, and ofter find myself reading similar plots written by different authors. It was very refreshing to find a book with a different type of ending. This is my first book by Georgina Cross, and I am impressed by her style of writing. I am considering reading her previous novels as well. This was a super-fast, intriguing, and thrilling read. Thank you NetGalley and Bantam Publisher for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
