A lot of twists! This book was going in many directions but still a great read,

This is my second Pinborough book. I did not enjoy as much as Behind her eyes. I was fine with the changing of POV, but the time changes kind of threw me off. Yet I love the writing style. This is a mother daughter story where both have secrets.

Seems it is a good day for Sarah Pinborough deals as this is currently only £5.24 on #Audible Uk not a daily deal just a good price.

Not as good as Behind her eyes but still a good read.

Passable thriller - realistically improbable but it's not doing anything that isn't a thriller staple.

Nominated for the 2019 Locus Horror Award.

This was a twisty psychological thriller that I had to finish in one day. A bit implausible but definitely a fun ride! Would recommend to anyone who enjoys fast-paced suspense novels. 4⭐️

#BOTM

P.S. I did it! My goal was to read as many BOTM books as I could this month — I‘m so behind and only read 4 total last year! 😱 I quickly amended my goal to try to read 12 BOTM books in January and I just made it! 12 down, about 30 to go! 😆 #goals

Laughterhp Great job! My goal is to read at least 1 of my BOTM books a month. This month I read 2 and started a 3rd, so progress! 😂 3y
JenlovesJT47 @Laughterhp that‘s awesome! 🙌🏻 I don‘t want to stress myself out by thinking I have to read 12 a month now but I‘m going to try to read at least one a week. I‘m hoping to be caught up by the end of June! 😳 3y

I initially thought it had a slow start, and since my sister said it was her favorite BOTM I was determined to not like it, lol! I was however quickly sucked in and couldn‘t put this down so I definitely enjoyed it.

Okay thriller, I liked some of the twists and turns the story took but there was a lot going on here. Maybe too many plots? I listened on audio so that may have been part it but it was just a little meh.

This book was such a disappointment. I loved Behind Her Eyes and this one was just predictable and ridiculous. It did keep me reading but I‘d guessed everything before it happened.

On a brighter note, this is my new baby Revan! My boyfriend found him at work living in a dumpster. He seems to be about eight weeks old and he‘s settling into his new home well. 🐱 📚

General consensus among my GR friends was right—this was not great. I read it in basically a day so it held my attention, & I like an unreliable narrator. But this was reeeeally slow for the first third, then got so convoluted & bogged down w/unsubtle hints & ostensible red herrings that...weren‘t. Reveal was pretty trite & there were some corny TV cop show lines. But I loved Behind Her Eyes, so I‘m willing to try one more from her, maybe 😬2/5 ⭐️

Megabooks I was undecided about this, and you‘re making me glad I haven‘t read it yet. 3y
alisonrose @Megabooks it‘s not terrible, and I did see some really positive reviews on GR! But it‘s just so slow and meandering and then didn‘t pay off for me. Have you read Behind Her Eyes? 3y
Megabooks I did like Behind Her Eyes. That twist was crazy! 3y
alisonrose @Megabooks Yeah I loved the twist! I know a lot of people haaaaaated it though, and it seems like people like one book or the other but not both 3y

It's been a loooooooong time since a book made me cry. And for that I recommend it. If I can be emotionally compromised by an authors words then they deserve a solid review! It's a bit predictable but worth the read. There are some twists that you won't see coming that add suspense and mystery. The end will rip your heart out. 😭 #charrot

kellyann28 I actually just swapped for this book and wasn't super excited about it, but I love a good, sad story! I may pick this up sooner rather than later. 3y

I am quite the fan of Sarah Pinborough, and while I LOVED Behind Her Eyes, I had to take a step back and acknowledge not all books can leave me with my mouth hanging open.

And this was a solid book!

Lisa is certainly an overprotective mother who just wants what is best for her daughter, Ava. But what secrets is Lisa hiding from earlier in her life?

And what if those secrets can‘t be buried in the past?

Predictable ending but great writing!
