About the Book:
Darcy Hogan’s perfect life is all over social media. She’s beautiful, she’s successful, and she and her childhood sweetheart are about to become parents for the first time. But behind all the followers and the superficial likes lurks a darker truth…In reality, Darcy feels isolated and afraid. Her difficult pregnancy has her confined to the house, she’s being harassed online, and out-of-control debt threatens to ruin everything she’s worked so hard for. When her husband is summoned away on business, Darcy’s cabin fever soon spirals into fear. Who is making mysterious phone calls and knocking on her door? Is it an old friend trying to reach out—or a stranger determined to push in? As her due date creeps closer, Darcy feels ever more certain that someone is out to get her. She’s desperate to get away—but is she running from the right person?

My Review:
This was a slow burn until the last 100 pages or so. It was a bit repetitive BUT I liked the writing style and the flashbacks between now and then. This story kept me wanting more and trying to figure out how it would end. I have to say I was surprised with the ending and wouldn’t have guessed how it would wrap up. I was a little disappointed that Darcy wasn't portrayed as a stronger woman. She has her own business yet she gets bullied by her husband and Gillian? It didn't sit well with me.

Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read and it was enjoyable for the most part. I do look forward to reading more books by this author and that's the best compliment I can give.

Thank you NetGalley, Janelle Harris and Amazon Publishing UK for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
