Goodreads Synopsis: “This novel follows three characters: Lorraine, Lexy, and Ella.
Not long ago, Lorraine lost her husband to another woman. She thought that was the worst thing that could happen to her, but soon she realizes it’s just the beginning of an everlasting nightmare.
Lexy, an au pair from London, moves to Seattle to help Lorraine with her infant son. But she didn’t come for the child…she came for something else.
When Ella receives a call from her sister, Lorraine, who begs her to leave San Diego to spend time with her, she decides to take a few days off from work to visit her. Frightened to see how much Lorraine has weakened since her diagnosis eight months ago, she packs a bag and heads to Seattle with a foreboding feeling that this might be the last time she sees Lorraine.
But on her way to the airport, she learns that something shocking has happened since she last spoke with Lorraine and now. To make matters worse, once Ella arrives in Seattle, Lorraine’s story keeps changing, making Ella question how reliable her sister really is.
Soon Ella is entangled in a mysterious investigation, and more so, in the lives of everyone involved. She realizes not only that she won’t go home anytime soon but also that she’ll never look at others the same way she did before.“
MY RATING: 3.5 Starts
* The author of this book sent me this paperback copy in exchange for an honest review, so don’t expect less than that, I will always give my honest opinion, like it or not *
On GoodReads my rating for this book was 4 Stars because they don’t have that 0.5 Star rating system there BUT my actual rating for this book is nothing more than 3.5 Stars.
I am not going to say that I didn’t like this book because I liked it and it was an enjoyable read I just didn’t love it, I was probably expecting a little more from it and I wanted the book to be a little more exciting and it kinda took me some time to read this book, normally I read a book in 3 or 4 hours depending on the length of the book but this time it too me like 2 or 3 days because I was not that interested in knowing what was going to happen next.
As a reviewer I really need to be honest giving my opinions and sometimes the authors get kind of “angry” when people don’t say amazing things about their books but this is how it is, we have to rate the books and we have to give our honest opinions and that’s why authors send their books to reviewers, their send us their books exactly for that reason, in exchange for a HONEST review and I just can’t do less than that, so I hope the author of this book understands that because I’m not saying only bad things here, I am just giving my opinion.
I really think that it was an enjoyable read and I think that Danielle Esplin did a great job writing this book ! Danielle is a new author and I really think everyone should give a try to this book because new author need people to read their books and spread the message, maybe I didn’t love this book but probably you will, so I really think you all should try to read this book, a lot of people loved it so…
I liked a lot of parts of this book, I liked the mystery, I liked the whole concept of the book, I kinda liked the characters and I totally likede the end of the book, it was just WOW for me ! But I think that something is missing, maybe some action some more mystery (yes, I realized I said I liked the mystery in this book, but I think that more mystery would going to make this book even better)…
I really like the way this book is written, and I absolutely love that cover ! YAS, that cover is so beautiful, so amazing, so stunning ! Great job with that choice Danielle !
Once again I really think you all should try to read this book and take your own conclusions about it because new authors need a lot of support !
