Synopsis: A perfect life…
Paul Henderson leads a normal life. A deputy headteacher at a good school, a loving relationship with girlfriend Jenna, and a baby on the way. Everything seems perfect.
A shocking message…
Until Paul receives a message from his ex-fiance Nicole. Beautiful, ambitious and fierce, Nicole is everything Jenna is not. And now it seems Nicole is back, and she has a score to settle with Paul…
A deadly secret.
But Paul can’t understand how Nicole is back. Because he’s pretty sure he killed her with his own bare hands….
Which means, someone else knows the truth about what happened that night. And they’ll stop at nothing to make Paul pay…
I was super excited to read this one. While it didn’t exactly meet my expectations, it was quite an enjoyable read! My main problem with the book was the predictability. However, I do understand that when you read tons of thrillers, they start becoming easy to predict; it’s a possibility that the issue has more to do with me than the book itself!
It started off strongly; I was completely hooked during the first half of the book. Around the second half, it started to slow down a bit. I personally get restless during slower books, so I did get distracted a lot easier during the second half. I still think this is worth the read if you’re a thriller fan; just know it might be predictable. Otherwise, I thought it was a pretty engaging, well-written thriller!
