What I learned from this book: I learned the art of manipulation. 🙂

Description of this book: Jacob Reese enjoys the quiet life, running a coffee shop and renting out his cottage in The Hollows, Vermont.

But the calm is shattered when a woman who looks eerily similar to his ex-girlfriend Laura turns up to stay in the cottage, and leaves a mysterious note in the guest book.

Now Jacob’s seeing Laura everywhere―a glimpse of her face across the street, her music box left outside his house, a gift he gave her years before hanging from the trees.
But it can’t be Laura. Because Laura’s dead.

Someone knows Jacob’s secret―what really happened the night Laura died―and they’re out for revenge…

How this book made me feel: I love, love the cover of this book, it looks as mysterious and gloomy as the book itself, and I loved that contrast!

The protagonist in this novel is Jacob, and the novel is told from his perspective. I really liked Jacob as a character, he is very intelligent and I was able to learn a few tips and tricks from him. 😉 This character is quite complex and very well developed. His past is very dark and intriguing, and I was waiting for the parts, where Jacob shared his youth days very impatiently. 🙂

This novel had me hooked from the first chapter. The narrative is very well planned out, when it seems that everything calms down and Jacob’s life just plods along, the author always threw in some kind of twist or a turn to “wake” the reader up. 🙂 The plot keeps time travelling between the past and the present, and I loved the way Jacob’s secrets unravelled.

The setting of this book was well set up, small town and forests gave this book a mysterious and eerie atmosphere. I liked the writing style of this novel as well, the author knows how to keep the reader interested and absorbed. The culmination was a little predictable, but I liked the events leading to it. The ending on the other hand kind of annoyed me, I am not a big fan of cliff hangers, and it annoys me not to know what actually happened next. :/ The chapters were quite long, but they were divided into smaller parts, so it didn’t feel boring or long to me.

So, to conclude, it is a very well written psychological thriller, filled with dreadful secrets, complicated protagonist, and choices that can change one’s life forever. I really enjoyed this book, and I strongly recommend this novel to everyone. 🙂

Thank You for Your time! ❤
