Goodreads page:

In this stand-alone we follow Maggie as she learns that her best friend died of apparent suicide but she is not convinced. She uses all her resources to try and find out the truth, no matter what it may be.

If you have read the other books by KA Tucker then you know how she is able to create many different characters from different backgrounds and is able to shape them without taking up to much of the book or making it boring. Throughout this book we get to see Maggie now only through her eyes but Celine’s as well as she tries to figure out what happened to her friend.

There is a mystery to this story that forces you to try and figure out what happened like Maggie. As you read it you compile clues and try to figure it out before it’s revealed. What makes it difficult is that you only get Maggie’s perspective and her prejudices. But this makes a great mystery book because sometimes it forces you to overlook a clue and when the big reveal comes it’s more of a surprise.

I really like everything that Tucker has written so far and she is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. The stories draw you in and grab hold of you as you try to work out what is going to happen and prepare for the twist that you never see coming.

It takes a lot of skill to be able to write a story that keeps you a hold of you from start to finish. It’s one of those stories that you need to pay attention to, because if you don’t you will miss something important. Like Maggie, you go back and forth with what you think happened but when you get to truth, you will be shocked and amazed. Tucker knows how to write a twist that haves you sighing out loud because you can’t believe that you missed it.

KA Tucker is quickly becoming one of those authors that I will read a book from her just because she wrote it. It’s hard to find authors nowadays that can surprise you like she can and I can’t wait to read what she writes next.

Rating: A

You can buy the book on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks and Kobo.
