I wasn’t expecting much from this as I read Behind her Eyes and wasn’t a huge fan of it.
This one was a different story, much more realistic and I found it to be a page-turner. Lisa lives with her 16 year old daughter Ava and is of quite a nervous disposition. She seems overly aware of her surroundings and it always looking over her shoulder as if there’s someone watching her. From the beginning you wonder why she’s behaving like this; is she just an anxious person? Has she escaped an abusive partner? Is she in a witness protection programme? Is she a fugitive? However the day after her daughter rescues a drowning toddler, her pictures appear in all of the papers and then everything becomes clear. It’s hard to say much about the story line without spoiling it. Suffice to say, it’s a very gripping and disturbing thriller. There are some explicit scenes in this so maybe not suited for younger readers or anyone of a sensitive nature.
