Who would have thought that one little white lie could have led to so much trouble…..well Katrina Burton certainly didn’t. One rainy night when she picked a young male hitchhiker, she had no idea of the consequences. She initially drives past him but then stops out of guilt, however he is drunk and she feels uncomfortable and she lies about her destination to get him out of her car. Unfortunately for her, he turns out to be one of her new colleagues at the school where she is about to start work. Little did she know how he would exact his revenge and how that one little white lie would grow and grow…

This was a pacy read and you could feel the tension and suspense with each twist and turn. I didn’t like some of the characters but I could engage with them and they were well written and believable. The hitchhiker, Zach, was a social misfit who more than liked a drink – there were times when I really disliked him and others when I felt sorry for him. Katrina was a well meaning person, trying to put her life back together after a tragedy and I could really feel for her as her life so unexpectedly took a dangerously wrong turn.

I really enjoyed this book and will certainly be keen to read more by this author.

My thanks to Netgalley for the opportunity to read this.
