Happy Thursday book lovers!
Excited to share with you today my review for this twisted domestic thriller that will really make you sweat!😅 Big thanks to Noelle for my invitation to the tour and to Sarah A. Denzil for her thrilling story!
Well HOT DAMN! This book was dark, disturbing, and deliciously twisted!
Sarah A. Denzil has crafted a story that will blow your mind and destroy your heart. I just finish this and my heart is still racing. This was not the book I was expecting, it was SO much more! This book truly is every mother’s absolute worst nightmare, I honestly never thought it could get worse than a child’s suicide, but apparently it can.
Kat gets the call that no parent ever wants, her daughter Grace is dead. To make things worse Grace’s death has been ruled a suicide. Kat knows without a doubt that her daughter would not kill herself. So she takes it upon herself to investigate Grace’s death. But as the puzzle pieces began to fit and more and more things are revealed Kat realizes she didn’t really know her daughter at all. How well do you really know your child? Can the child that you held as an infant turn into a monster? And can they do it without you even noticing? *shutters*
Kat has been diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder a.k.a. a sociopath. however she has truly loved her daughter with all her heart, and has done everything in her power to give her child a stable home environment and to be a loving mother. Kat did not grow up in a stable environment and her mother has some pretty major issues of her own. I found Kat to be a sympathetic and relatable character. Not that I’m a sociopath, but I could completely empathize with her grief, sorrow, and need to find out the truth no matter what the cost. And The cost was pretty high Kat had to face many of her own demons throughout the investigation. All the characters in this book were vividly and cleverly drawn. The story was so dark and intense and completely riveting! Perfectly pace with twists and turns you won’t see coming. All I can say is pick this up and then buckle up because you are in for one crazy well worth it ride! Absolutely recommend!

About the Book
The must-read psychological thriller for 2019 from the million-copy-bestselling author of Silent Child.
‘Your daughter is dead.’
When Kat Cavanaugh hears the words every mother dreads, her perfect world shatters. She takes in the beautiful long blonde hair, torn yellow dress and chipped blue nail-varnish. It can’t be real.
And then the police add the word ‘suicide’. But Kat refuses to believe them.
Even when they show her the familiar looping handwriting and smudged ink on the note her little girl left behind. She knows her bubbly, vivacious daughter would never take her own life.
As she searches Grace’s perfume-scented room, filled with smiling photos, she uncovers secrets her little girl had been hiding. Secrets that could put her in terrible danger too.
But Kat’s determined to find out what really happened to Grace on the night she died, whatever it takes…
This addictive and heart-pounding psychological thriller will keep you gripped late into the night.
