About the Book:
Two girls went down to the woods... But only one came back.
There's a lot from Tess's childhood that she would rather forget. The family who moved next door and brought chaos to their quiet lives. The two girls who were murdered, their killer never found. But the only thing she can't remember is the one thing she wishes she could. Ten years ago, Tess's older sister died. Ruled a tragic accident, the only witness was Tess herself, but she has never been able to remember what happened that night in the woods. Now living in London, Tess has resolved to put the trauma behind her. But an emergency call from her father forces her back to the family home, back to where her sister's body was found, and to the memories she thought were lost forever.

Two girls went in. But only one came out.

Vanessa Savage is an exceptional author. I read this book in less than a day, the writing has a way of drawing you in and captivating the reader completely...right to the very last page. I was totally hooked and have since discovered another book by this author...The Woman in the Dark. It is now on my to read list, which I will definitely be reading very soon.

This was an intriguing read with a steady pace which kept me hooked. There were no massive twists and turns in the first half of the but just a slow burning plot which slowly revealed facts. In the second half of the book the pace and intensity increased dramatically as all became more clear. The characters are splendidly portrayed and very credible.

Well written, believable, tense and set at just the right pace, this story gripped me from the start and had all the elements of a great mystery/thriller. This was the first book that I've read by Vanessa Savage but definitely won't be the last.

Thank you NetGalley, Vanessa Savage and Grand Central Publishing for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
