It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared without trace. Then a letter from her father arrives – ‘I need to talk to you. That girl. I saw that girl.’ Has her father’s dementia worsened, or has he really seen Corinne? Returning home, Nicolette must finally face what happened on that terrible night all those years ago.
Then, another young woman goes missing, almost to the day of the anniversary of when Corinne vanished. And like ten years ago, the whole town is a suspect.
Told backwards – Day 15 to Day 1 – Nicolette works to unravel the truth, revealing shocking secrets about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne.
This one was a ride. I honestly was going into it expecting it to pace similar to Riley Sagers Books (final girls & the last time I lied). This book was just all around a mediocre read for me, like it was good but nothing memorable or special about it.
Your mc is Nicolette. She has been gone from home for 10 years. She has come back to Cooley ridge to help her brother sell her fathers house.
10 years ago before Nicolette left the Prescott girl went missing. As soon as Nicolette is back home another girl goes missing and you are thrust back into all this mystery of not only what has happened to Annalise, but what happened all those years ago to quin.
These characters were so bland. There was no development behind them, no anything. They all lacked substance for me. The only character I really liked was Everett and even he didn’t have much depth to him either.
I honestly didn’t enjoy this has much as I had hoped. The writing and overall story were just lacking for me. First the story is told backwards to you up until you get back to present day. This just made the book super confusing at times for me and I didn’t think it added anything special to the book. I would have rather had things told in order to make sense.
You have things that happened in day 2 and 3 that should have majorly affected the rest of the days but the author can’t really dig deeper into that without giving the major twist away to the ending. That was just aggravating and I think it would have done so much more for the story to be told in order.
Another thing I found irritating was it had so many instances of cheating throughout the story and It honestly made me dislike it even more. I don’t approve of cheating on your significant other no matter what the situation.
Overall this is a 2.5 for me and that’s being generous in my opinion. I think others might enjoy this one, it just sadly wasn’t for me. I hope if you do pick it up that you will love it.
