Someone out there knows her darkest secrets and they could destroy everything.
Torn apart from her own family, she will stop at nothing to create a perfect one.
Why are they all so ungrateful? she’s only looking after them…
Well … what an emotional rollercoaster of a book this was. Filled with creepy, cruel and manipulative characters that by the end of the book I just couldn’t help to feel sorry for, so much so that it very nearly had me in tears.
This was a story filled with dark secrets from a bunch of dark characters – some you loved and others not quite so much, however every single one of them was intoxicating, to the point of being addicted to them.
The main character Morag – well, I honestly don’t think you will find a character as creepy and as weird as this one. From the offset she seemed disturbed and those feelings just continued to increase as the story progresses. YES, the woman had a hard childhood and even crueler mother and I did feel sorry for her I truly did. BUT, that being said she had more than one screw loose in her head. BUT she was the most intoxicating character of them all, just wanting to be loved – who could deny anyone that??
Ronnie – straight away I felt sorry for him, you knew he had something wrong with him and everyone in his life used him and manipulated him. He was known as the village weirdo and all I ever wanted to do was hug him.
Susan – Another poor soul been caught under the grasp of Morag, wanting to rebuild her life after her ex relationship but got lured in by the worst of the village bunch – practically fighting over her friendship.
And then there is Jess – someone I believe the author wanted us to feel sorry for throughout most of the book and it worked I did. But soon enough Jess started showing traits of Morag, not as much the creepy side but manipulative – oh yes, she could give Morag a run for her bloody money on that one. She turned out to be pretty evil – especially after she threw the HUGE spanner in the works.
This book is definitely a MUST READ for any thriller fan. I COULD NOT put this book down. It was absolutely fantastic and as Sharon is still fairly new to writing with this only being her second book – I can definitely concur that she has one hell of a budding career ahead of her!!
