It took me awhile to get into this one, but when I did, I couldn‘t stop. Between a pick and a so-so, but with the twists, it does deserve a pick! The ending felt a tad rushed, but the whole second half was worth it.

I haven‘t read anything by Spindler since 2002... but this one sounded interesting. Sienna returns home to her small WI town after escaping #HardTimes a decade earlier between her mother‘s mental illness & discovering the freshly murdered corpse of a fellow undergrad. The murder is still unsolved & her presence seems to be stirring things up. Though fast-paced, it‘s not the most realistic book & the plot isn‘t completely satisfying. #NewYearNewYou
I owe Spindler an apology. I went into this book expecting I wouldn‘t like it. The last few mysteries I‘ve read have disappointing me and for the first few chapters I was determined this would end the same. But Spindler‘s writing is compelling; she draws you into the story and keeps your interest.
The ending felt a little too tidy (I‘m not a fan of the long killer monologues explaining everything) but overall a satisfying thriller.
I have read several other novels by Erica Spindler and I thoroughly enjoyed all of them. This novel was no different. I love reading thriller novels and this one was full of twists and turns that the reader never sees coming. The reader never knows who the killer is until the very end. I really loved it!
I received an advance copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
