How do you live with yourself as an adult when you were convicted of murder as a child?
And when you can’t remember the crime…
HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU’RE GUILTY?
Charlotte wants a fresh start. She wants to forget her past, forget her crime – and, most of all, forget that one terrible moment.
It’s the reason she’s been given a new name, a new life. The reason she spent years in prison.
But even on the outside, with an ankle monitor and court-mandated therapy, she can’t escape the devastating memory of the night that turned her and her only friend into national hate figures.
But now her friend has found her.
And despite the lies she tells to survive, she soon finds herself being dragged deeper and deeper into a past she cannot confront.
Even if it’s going to cost Charlotte her life…
I have to say that I was slightly nervous about reading this due to the fact that I thought the authors debut novel The Innocent Wife couldn’t get any better with it being one of my top reads last year. Amy Lloyd did just that and has totally blown me away yet again!
Having read this book in two sittings I was very anxious to get back to it….but unfortunately for me I had to go to work. While at work I couldn’t stop thinking about this book….talk about getting under your skin.
In this story we meet Charlotte who wants to forget about the crime she did when she was a child. She is now out of prison with a new name and fresh start and trying to rebuild her life. Until her old friend finds her..
The story is told of Charlotte’s POV and alternates between now and then weaving a story that will have you questioning everything. The more I read the more I wanted to know what Charlotte had done. I actually liked Charlotte and felt sorry for her at times but then has the plot thickens I wanted to shake her. The author takes you on a rollercoaster ride which will have you guessing until the very end.
The tension build up is out of this world this is definitely what a psychological thriller is all about. Making you feel every emotion possible, the author sure knows how to keep you on your toes.
I cannot recommend it enough giving it all the stars
