About the Book:
Chloe Daniels regains consciousness in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
She doesn't recognise the strangers who call themselves family. She can't even remember her own name. What if your past remained a mystery? As she slowly recovers, her parents and sister begin to share details of her life. The successful career. The seaside home. The near-fatal car crash. But Chloe senses they're keeping dark secrets—and her determination to uncover the truth will have devastating consequences.

Hope resides in the darkest of places. You just have to be prepared to search in the shadows, because alongside them you will always find the light.

The story was suspenseful and emotional. This plot was emotional, heartbreaking, raw and expertly woven. I enjoyed this book. It was an easy read, characters were realistically flawed and all but the main character, unlikable.

As usual in this type of book, things are not what you think they are, and I had to quit trying to figure it out and just enjoy the words. The story has all the components of a good psychological thriller, but I do wish there would have been a bit more character development, I always want more details.

This novel contains suspense, is not a dark novel but contains sensitive topics, it keeps you guessing every possible scenario of an outcome. The author manages to present us many characters full of secrets, lies, and betrayals. The final part of the book is great, it has an unexpected twist that was not expected which made me enjoy the book more.

An event early on in the book, which set up the rest of the plot, I thought maybe needed a little working but overall I would recommend this book to others as it did keep me reading from beginning to end.

Thank you NetGalley, St. Martin's Griffin, St. Martin's Press and Michelle Adams for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
