But will she realize she's unknowingly playing a part in an elaborate game to cover up a crime before it's too late?"
I really enjoyed this book. It was told in multiple viewpoints not to mention it was also told with evidence logs. I thought it was a really interesting way to go with this story and I really appreciated that. Even though it took me a bit to get into the story at the beginning (either it was just a slow beginning or it was because I was kind of in a reading slump) the writing flowed well and it kept me entertained and drawn to the story up until the end.
The main plot/storyline within this novel is that Kadence Mulligan is missing. And at first you love the girl and then you read the stories of what she has done and honestly, I think Kadence deserved what she got. She was just not a good person at all. She had fooled a lot of people for sure, but she was definitely not a good person. At the beginning there is only a couple of suspects and then the list gets bigger, because of how awful Kadence was.
I was able to figure out the ending, but I still enjoyed reading it and seeing how it all turned out. There is one twist that surprised me, and I am happy for that. And I thought it was a very enjoyable read and probably wouldn’t mind rereading at some point. I think that if you’re into mysteries, thrillers, or suspenseful novels, you should give this one a try because even though there were times that it dragged, once you got towards the ending, the story and the suspense just gripped you tightly! I thoroughly enjoyed this one!
