“You don’t know fear until you’ve traipsed through darkness. You don’t know desolation until you've been tossed to the wolves. You don’t know pain until you’re shown just how disposable you are".

FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!! Yea that word sums up everything that I’m feeling at this very moment. What did I get myself into? What is this pain that I’m feeling in the middle of my chest?! I’m praying that it’s heartburn right now and eventually, it’s going to go away because I do NOT like this feeling!

Oh my gosh!!! Lily White slays me! She absolutely SLAYS me!!! She hooked me from the first word and continued to pull me into a dark, dangerous and twisty world, chewing me up and then spitting me out where I didn’t know what the heck I had just lived through. This book freaking twisted me in every direction making me constantly try to peek around corners to see what was going to happen next and never giving me what I was expecting but slamming me with more twists until I’m now left in a soggy m

”You can’t hurt a man who made puppets dance by pulling their strings.”

I’m completely stunned!! I went into this book thinking it was going to be a dark read about a psycho, but what I got from this story was so much more and I’m completely blown away.

Did I get a psycho? Yes, then no.
Did I get a hero I disliked? Yes, then no
Did I get more than 1 hero? I think so, but I’m not really sure (how intriguing is that? Lol)

I started out being a little fearful of the rage of one of the characters. Wh

While I am tempted to rely on a favorite expression of mine after I read then try to review something so wonderfully extraordinary and masterfully written as this book. That expression being “I am lost for words.” Quite the opposite is true. There are so many ideas that this author has woven into this suspenseful, dark, brooding and violent fairytale, I need to keep myself in check and not over-share.

It deserves more than 5 stars.
In true Lily style she has left me dumbfounded.
My emotions are all over the place.

This book contains Love, lies and deception at it's finest.

Meadow is invited to interview her sister's killer Vincent Mercier who is on death row, she has 72hrs to get the answers to the questions she needs for closure. Let me just say I fell in love with Vincent and cried for him.

THIS IS AN AMAZING READ.

From start to finish it’s true perfection. The storyline is unique which I as a reader crave for.

I don’t know how Lily White does it but she does. This book has now moved The Director by Lily White out of first place for my favorite books by this author. Like I’ve said before… with Lily White books, you have to read them word for word. Take in the meaning of each and every word typed. You will thank me in the end!

It’d been quite some time since I’d read a Lily White mindf@ck book. I’m not entirely sure why except I need to take darker tropes in doses but with every page I turned in this book, I kept asking myself why? Why haven’t I devoured every book she builds in her likely crazy little mind. I mean that with the upmost of respect because Wishing Well is absolutely my favorite Lily White book. Maybe because it is chock full of suspense without a ton of darkness. The kind of book that’s trickle-fed v

3.5 stars. I loved this book and it was a definite 5 stars all the way until that absolutely craptastic ending. As a reader I went through so much to get to that point and I felt absolutely let down by the ending. There should have been more and one character at the end just pissed me off. I won’t put spoilers because it will ruin the story but I was left unsatisfied. And I guess it’s just me because I don’t see others complaining about it 🤷♀ it was like one character got a lobotomy and I unders ...more

Wishing Well sucked in me from the start, frustrated the hell out of me numerous times (for reasons we’ll kind of address *BSEG*) gave me the FEELS (Yeah, didn’t necessarily expect that either) and left me with a weird mix of ultimate satisfaction with THAT ending while in my head I was thinking “But, but…” Simply put, the mind fuck was real and I absolutely adored it!

This story is WOW!! Wishing Well is nothing like I anticipated and for that, I am truly grateful.

"The perfect timing of a fairy tale is tied to its tragedy…"

Whishing Well is Lily at her finest. She truly is in a league of her own with this twist tale. This is no ordinary fairy tale and it's one you must go into completely blind.

Alluring. Captivating. Intriguing. Spellbinding. Vincent Mercier is a man who will ensnare you in his web of half-truths and leave you questioning your own sanity.

My new thing these days is to read a book without much knowledge beforehand, no preconceived notions or ideas, no hints, no thoughts of twists or turns within the pages or trying to get into the head of the author, just read the damn book, pure and simple.

Just when I think there is no way to top her last book Lily does it again! So many twist and turns, so many emotions. This story puts your heart through the wringer!

What a beautifully twisted story this was! 

When you start to read you mind goes in just the direction Lily wants you to, just like Vincent played Penny's mind.  The story varies between flashbacks and current day but it flows so smoothly.  The alternate POV's where amazing, it really brought you into the twisted mind of Vincent and t
