I’d like to thank NetGalley for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated.

This book was amazing! I had no idea where this was going throughout this book I kept trying to guess where it was going and every time I was way off. I could not for the life of me guess where this story was going and I love that in a mystery.

I loved Charlie’s character, although I’ve noticed in the majority of mystery books why do detectives or cops not know how to control their alcohol? Other than that I really liked her character, when she had an inkling she didn’t drop it she just kept trying to figure it out and learn what happened.

Annabelle bless her I really felt sorry for her sometimes having to deal with her crazy protective mother, but once the thing came out it was understandable. I thought she was interesting character and I liked how we learnt about her life and how it was revealed to the audience.

Rosa and Alice scenes very interesting and I want to know more about that. I’m hoping there will be another book because I am very invested in these characters.

After all this had done I felt like although the Annabelle part of the story had been answered, I still had questions when it came to Charlie, like I can’t really explain it without spoiling it but yeah I had some unanswered questions which as I said I really hope there is another book because the author has set up the characters really well.

I really enjoyed the plot of this book I don’t want to go into too much detail because of spoilers but I really liked the plot.
