NEW NAME. NEW FAMILY. SHINY. NEW. ME.
Annie’s mother is a serial killer.
The only way she can make it stop is to hand her in to the police.
But out of sight is not out of mind.
As her mother’s trial looms, the secrets of her past won’t let Annie sleep, even with a new foster family and name – Milly.
A fresh start. Now, surely, she can be whoever she wants to be.
But Milly’s mother is a serial killer. And blood is thicker than water.
Good me, bad me.
She is, after all, her mother’s daughter…
The words seem to just pull you in and don’t let you go until you’ve read the last page. To say that it’s gripping would be an understatement here!
Just from the synopsis, I knew this would be my type of book and when I started reading it I was proved right, the story was engaging and interesting, the characters had their flaws and charm to make them realistic and the whole thing kept me captivated the whole way through. Unlike a lot of other books I’ve read recently, this one didn’t have a dull section in the middle that I had to ‘get through’ so that was a very refreshing change.
I do think that I would’ve liked a bit more information/ detail because there were quite big pieces missing from where Annie/ Milly was too traumatized to talk about what happened and I feel like the Morgan character should’ve been more involved towards the end but other than I really can’t fault this book!
Rating out of 5: 5
