My mom and grandmother love Chevy Stevens, so when I saw this book on NetGalley I thought I would give it a shot. When I was a kid, I read everything under the sun and loved it all, but as an adult I’m pretty genre specific. Now I know why.
I’m the type of person that escapes into a book. I live the book while I’m reading it. Chevy Stevens is an incredible writer. She has a way of building suspense and mistrust into every corner of her book. I would have to take breaks while reading because this book made me stress so much that I was physically uncomfortable. I’m sure regular readers of this genre don’t have this problem, so hopefully, it is something that will get better as I read more like this. It is a true testament to the strength of this book, that I couldn’t put it down at the end. I was literally sneaking pages at an informal family get-together.
I couldn’t read books like this all the time, but it was a nice change of pace from the romance and fantasy I usually enjoy.
I received an advance review copy of this book that I have chosen to review.
