's review

Well.. what can I say about this book?

My hopes were extremely high going into this book. For one I LOVE that cover! But, the story inside wasn't as juicy as I was hoping :(.

The first half the book dragged on for me and I just couldn't connect to the characters. I don't necessarily think this should be marketed as thriller more dark women's fiction in my opinion. So, please know that going in that this isn't a thriller.

Also, there was major content warning... if you're sensitive to child abuse and animal abuse I would probably take a hard pass on this. I don't think I would have read this unfortunately if I would have been aware of the triggers.

It was also marketed about having sinister cult.. which it does but this doesn't really come into play until maybe the last 90 percent of the book.

Overall, was a tad disappointed in this one.

2.5 stars rounded up to 3.

Thank you to Netgalley and Harlequin/Mira for the arc in exchange for an honest review.
