From the very beginning this started off good! It goes back and forth from Then and Now and kept you wanting to read more. The ending was just the best so I highly recommended this book
Certainly keeps you guessing, right up to the end. Did she, or didn’t she? Read it and find out! We all have our secrets, don’t we?
First book I’ve read from this author and I thoroughly enjoyed the story, trying go figure out the mystery as it went on. It’s definitely a unique story wherein a kidnapping victim adopts the child of the man who tried to murder her. I was frustrated at the open ended news of the finale however. Does this mean were getting more books to continue these characters stories? Or did the writer deliberately leave us hanging? I’d really like to read more of her works, but worry about the same issue popping up!
Crazy stuff, but good. Zoe lives in denial. Who picks two crazy ass husbands? Talk about unlucky in love. She thinks that Maddie can be normal after what she experienced living with two psychos. I don’t understand why Maddie was not in serious therapy. She needed several times a week therapy for a very long time.I get why Zoe did the book and movie deal. But then move to another country and change your names. Also, change your appearance a bit. Stay away from social media and this way Maddie would have a better chance. No one needs to know any more about your life after a certain point. People forget and move on to the next big crazy. Plus, who would stay in that house after what happened with Justin? Zoe thinks she can stay and have a normal life there. Get real, people around there will always talk behind your backs calling you freaks or psycho family.I would not want to be Zoe. She has to always worry about Maddie and Gabe. Will Gabe grow up to be crazy like Justin?This was my 3rd book by Denzil. Looking forward to another book of hers.
Wow! My perfect daughter was a perfectly captivating read. It will certainty. Keep you up all night reading to see what happens next.
The last 3 chapters..The worst..like she run out of things to say to end the book.. it could ended better
