    I'm honestly disappointed. I love thrillers. I started this book with high hopes and was let down. The first half of the book was very slow going and somewhat tedious. At around 60% or so I figured out what the plot twist would be. I plugged through and finished the book, hoping that it would get better. It's well written, it just didn't hold my interest. *Thank you to the author/publisher/Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest review*

    Great read!

    What an exciting read this was! I was hooked from very early on and had a hard time putting this book down. The author did an excellent job weaving in all the intricate parts of this story. Leona lives with her boyfriend Scott and she has a 15-year-old daughter, Beth, who has started giving her mother a hard time. Beth meets a mysterious photographer in the mountains and they form a friendship which also complicates things between Beth and her mother. Leona starts having panic attacks and begins seeing her therapist, Lisa, and all the past secrets begin to be revealed. There are many twists, turns and surprises in this fantastic read and the author ties everything together very nicely in the end. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good psychological thriller as you will not be disappointed. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for the opportunity to read this great book.

    A brilliant psychological thriller debut

    They say there is no greater love than a mother’s love for their child. This is the case for Leona and her daughter Beth. The bond they share appears unbreakable and Leona has gone above and beyond to make sure Beth has had the best in life. But Leona’s love has come with a price, she has alienated her daughter from the world, causing Beth now a teenager to pull away from her as she struggles to fit in at school with her peers. There is a reason why Leona has been so fiercely protective of her daughter and the life she has built for them. She has a secret from her past, that if revealed, could lead to dangerous consequences for them both as well as Leona’s ‘husband’ Scott As the story progresses we are shown glimpses of Leona’s past and we are soon privy to what she has been hiding, and the struggles she endured during a horrific time in her life which shows why she is so protective of her family. When Beth comes across a hidden envelope containing information pertaining to her mother’s past, Leona has no choice but to reveal her secret which in turn puts all of their lives in danger! This story started gently, easing the reader into it, then building momentum to an explosive heart pounding conclusion which was fabulous! I still cannot believe that this is Wendy’s first psychological thriller! I was hooked from the start and read this in one sitting as I could not get enough! It is so well written and shows a confidence that you would think that Wendy has been writing in this genre for years, and I hope that she will continue to do so. The characters were very relatable and I really resonated with them. I felt each emotion that they all went through especially with Beth. I was really drawn to her character and felt her pain as she tried to find her place in the world. I also loved the descriptions of Beth’s artwork and of the Lake District setting where the book was set. This is a brilliant read and I look forward to more of Wendy’s work in the future. Write fast Wendy! 😜 I can not recommend this book highly enough and I am thrilled to have a new favourite author to add to my list. A BIG ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars from me!
