  • Suspenseful Dual Timeline

    This dual timeline domestic thriller is narrated by Helen. "Then" she is a teenager in school, from a privileged family and hung out with the "in" crowd. She and her friends are bullies. "Now" Helen is an adult who is married for the second time with a daughter, Mills, and two step kids, Matt and Lydia. All teenagers. Helen owns an independent bookstore and is an author. The house she has inherited seems to breathe and shudder, adding to the atmosphere. To some her life may look perfect but the truth is far from it. Diana, Matt's new girlfriend, meets his family and shares meals with them. There is something about Diana that is disconcerting and unnerving but Matt is smitten. It is obvious she knows something. This story seamlessly melds the past and the present with layer upon layer of deception. Trite, but nothing is at it seems. Smiles are painted on, laughs are painfully insincere, eyes roll. Family members are suspicious of one another. I found myself practically gnawing on my arm as I neared the end, itching to find out what the heck was going on yet not wanting it to end. Spades of angst and distrust make for a compelling read. The atmosphere is dark and tense. The suspense is nerve wracking and the surprises just kept coming! Love the original one liners, extremely clever and insightful. And the ending! If you are seeking something different and original with oomph, pick this up. My sincere thank you to Aria & Aries and NetGalley for the privilege of reading this thrillery mystery!

  • 3.5 Stars

    3.5 Stars Dawn Goodwin has redeemed herself in my eyes with this one. It is done in my favourite format of duel timelines. When Helen's son brings a new girlfriend home and said girlfriend finds a photograph that could reveal a long buried secret, Helen worries because the person who had the photo is supposed to be dead...Then someone is MURDERED! This was a very intense read with lots of suspense and falls into the domestic thriller category. This family certainly puts the fun in dysfunction I tell you. And when you finally get to the big reveal there is one more big twist for the reader that I didn't see coming. I loved Helen as a character and reading about her background. This was such a quick and enjoyable read.

  • Lots of twists and turns

    When Helen Whitmore's stepson brings home his new girlfriend, Diana, Helen instantly dislikes her. She isn't sure esactly what it is, just the way Diana looks at her. Then, out of the blue, an old photograph resurfaces that threatens to uncover a long-buried secret. Helen immediately suspects Diana, but before she can confront her Diana is found dead, and Helen's entire family has motives. This is a dual timeline book, with the chapters alternating between Helen as a teenager and present day. You don't find out the secret that Helen has been hiding until almost the very end of the book which is when you also find out the identity of the person who is blackmailing Helen. I never found Helen particularly likeable, so it was hard to get ivested in her character. Otherwise, the book had a good mystery, and lots of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the end.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A roller coaster of a read

    This novel kept surprising me. Definitely a page turner, it twists and turns even after you believe that you have figured out the entire plot. So just go along for the roller coaster ride and enjoy the experience with this book that has a number of themes, murder and revenge included, but so many more that would give away the plot twists. Although 352 pages, it was a one night thriller read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • What I Never Told You

    Incredible book. Suspense is maintained until the very last page. I thought I had figured out how the book would end but I was not even close Wonderful imagery as well as great plot. Highly recommend it.
