The answers, when they come, are terrifying.Because Lydia isn’t the only one with secrets.

I read this at the recommendation of Jamie B Golden from the popcast (look them up! Trust me! ) and I read it in less than 24 hours. While working full time and sick with a stomach bug. Y’all. This book. There’s a huge twist that you can’t possibly see coming and it is a thrill in every sense of the word. Must read – esp if you have any interest in true crime.
Great book no doubt! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. However, it did come to an abrupt ending, thus only getting 4 stars. Great read nonetheless!
Wow! I could not stop reading this book. It was an amazing read, and the Wows never stopped. A must read book.
This was the first time I read this author. Great story! I thought I had it all figured out, then twist.
This was such a book. I couldn’t put it down. I bought it last night and finished it this evening after work. There were so many surprises throughout the book. It had my attention from beginning to end. I definitely recommend it. It’s the best book I have read in a long time. Can’t wait to read more by this author.
