    A good read

    A twisty kind of a read where the author Wendy Clarke kept my brain swirling trying to figure out what was happening. I read the prose carefully, the lines and in between the lines to get to the hidden secrets. The author was clever in keeping them so deep in the psyche that I really didn't know what was the truth. Kelly lived with her twin daughter, son, and husband when she felt that there was someone watching her. Her OCD increased due to stress, and it was really hard to see her struggling all alone dealing with everything. She couldn't seem to share any of her past with her husband. Her past and the present made it difficult. I liked how different facets of her character were etched. Written in dual timelines from her own POV, Kelly now and Kelly then provided me enough red herrings to keep my attention strictly on the story. A sense of someone following her and trying to scare her was well written. What started as psychological games soon showed that it was something more, you could say, a warning of how the past and present were welded together. Wendy Clarke has done a good job keeping the fear and insecurity alive. A little cohesiveness in the prose, depth to the characters, and more thrill would have made it a perfect read for me. Overall, it did keep me from sleeping and made me want to keep reading till the end. At the end, I realized the story ultimately did resemble the symbol for zodiac sign Gemini ♊. Two lives running parallel both connected in the past and the present.

    Haunting Tale

    Haunting psychological suspenser which tells the tale of damaged children who grow into damaged adults. There are surprises and twists but mostly it's a human story about love and loss and the need to belong.

    Good read!

    What a roller-coaster ride this book was. Kelly is the product of a lot of childhood issues centered around her parents always hosting foster care children in their home. Her husband, Mitch, is the product of an unhappy childhood in the foster care system. They have 3 young children and all of a sudden memories start to resurface from Kelly's childhood as well as strange events begin happening. Plenty of twists and turns in this book! Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC of this fantastic book which was a real page-turner that I thoroughly enjoyed.

    This was a great read!

    This book kept me on edge, it was a great page turner. The story itself was a little predictable but the ending was actually really good. I liked the characters, the author did a great job bringing them to life. I liked the fact that there were kind of multiple plots going on throughout and that they ran seamlessly.

    A compelling mix of family drama and mystery

    Kelly is walking her twin daughters to their first day of school. It is not a pleasant experience. For one thing Kelly has OCD so the walk is wrought with problems - such as counting to a certain number while a light changes from red to green. Meanwhile, one twin is over-exuberant about her first day, while the other twin is terrified, thus leaving Kelly's nerves extra raw. Along for the walk is Kelly's baby Noah. Kelly parks Noah's pram near the door to hand over her daughters to their teacher. After only turning her back for a moment, she realizes Noah is gone. She flies into a panic, but then notices his pram a few classrooms down. When she reaches in to comfort Noah, she grasps a locket. The locket belonged to her sister Freya. How could this be? Frey died years ago and Kelly has never seen the locket since. With Kelly already being frazzled, Noah's pram apparently being moved, and the locket being discovered makes matters far worse for her. However, despite having a good relationship with her husband, Kelly feels she can share her fears and concerns with him. Instead she tries to focus on caring for the baby all while helping the girls adjust to school. This story goes back and forth from past to present. Kelly had a very unhappy childhood, and was always seeking the love and approval of her parents. Meanwhile, her mother seemed always looking for something, or someone, and thus Kelly had various foster siblings when she was a child. Kelly really hoped that Freya, when she came into her home, would be her real sister. Why then, after leaving home many years before, does Kelly suddenly find Freya's locket in Noah's pram? Things become rather sinister in this story. What happened with the locket was only the start of rather terrifying things for Kelly and her family. This was indeed a thrilling book, one that I read in one sitting. I was eager to know what the mystery was with Freya and also wanted to know the depths of Kelly's emotional problems and whether or not they would impact her role as a wife or a mother. Wendy Clarke did a fantastic job holding my attention from the very first page. I loved the mix of family drama and mystery. The inclusion of mental illness was handled gingerly and respectfully..The conclusion was thrilling, thus rounding out a very well-written story. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
