About the Book:
Hannah’s life is almost perfect. She’s a full-time mother to two young children and married to successful cardiologist Daniel. The only thing missing is a project of her own. So she has poured heart and soul into converting their stone barn into a beautiful holiday rental. Things take a dark turn when visitors Mike and Nadia come to stay. They are noisy, dirty and disrespectful. Hannah is incensed by their behaviour, worried they may wreck her lovingly restored barn. But she gradually realises that property damage is the least of her worries. Nadia and Mike aren’t here just for a holiday - they have a deeper, darker purpose, one that threatens to destroy Hannah’s entire life. Spiraling into a nightmare that grows worse with each passing day, Hannah has to find the courage to fight back. But Mike and Nadia are clever and ruthless and they know something that Hannah doesn’t - a shocking secret from the past.

My Review:
This book had me hooked from the start, the writing was captivating. I read a lot and have struggled to find anything, in the thriller category, that holds my attention...but this book more than hit the mark in that respect, it was well written, fast-paced and intriguing. Real cat and mouse stuff with perfect, short chapters that just keep you reading until you have finished the whole book in one sitting.

I love a book where I can't see immediately where it's headed and this one had me scratching my head. The characters were well developed, even the younger ones. The scheming Nadia, the naive Hannah, the arrogant Daniel and the creepy Mike. I’ve never read anything by this author before. but this was simply brilliant in the way the story unfolds...with a twist to the plot. I would have gladly given it five stars but the ending was a tad too neat for my liking, however, I will be seeking out other books in Ms. Rijks' catalog.

Thank you NetGalley, Miranda Rijks and Inkubator Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
