I'll start by saying that I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, I listened to it almost every chance I got and became truly invested in what happened and to whom. The writing was beyond decent and the characters were well developed. But it was still just "okay" to me. The story itself seemed well thought out and definitely kept me guessing who it could be. But at the same time, it was a little too over-the-top. Especially when we finally find out about the main characters entire back story, I almost laughed. It just seemed way out there - like, would that particular situation really cause her to go to the extremes she had to?
I think a large part of my feeling all boils down to the narration. Though not bad by any means, Turpin's voice just didn't suit the material. And I think that would have made all the difference. At least, in my opinion. The main character came across as whiny at times and other times there was no character distinction at all. But I could've dealt with that had there been even a small modicum of suspense in her inflection. That's what was missing, I think.
All in all it was an entertaining listen. Definitely worth a credit for those who are debating.

After getting to a few chapters to the end of the book I decided to read the reviews. I saw a negative one and I have to disagree with them. I have to say this book was very well written. The author did a great job keeping the reader on their toes throughout the entire book. I felt like I was always waiting for the next scream scene. It didn’t get super deep into different characters in order to keep you anticipating what was coming next. I’m really hoping she will write another book!
