How well do you know your husband?
Alex and Natalie seem to have the perfect life.
But Alex is haunted by terrible events from his childhood. He thought he’d escaped his past, but lately it’s been surfacing in the terrifying nightmares that plague his sleep.
As Alex’s behavior becomes increasingly strange, Natalie fears the worst. Has he been keeping things from her? And who is the mysterious Sheryl he calls out to in his dreams? She is determined to save their marriage by digging up the truth no matter what it costs.
Natalie follows Alex when he returns to his hometown to face the demons he thought he left deep in the forest. But the trip takes a deadly turn when shocking secrets from the past are revealed.
Can Natalie face the terrifying truth as she unravels the mystery that could shatter her world?
This is a slow burner that ends with an explosive outcome. We are given the background to the characters as they grow up and as they are now. A group of friends that are linked by a long-standing mystery, well I say friends, that is a very loosely used term. As I say it’s a slow burner but one to stick with.
Once the friends meet up in the now, things start to get out of hand, old rivalries and spats come to the forefront and an ominous figure is lurking, stalking silently. The showdown is brutal and the ending is not what I expected. It was dark and wicked, and quite perfect! It definitely feels like there should be more to come and I do wonder if we will get it. A few loose ends I am hoping to get tied up for sure.
There are some intense moments that had me urging the pages to fly faster as I needed to get the answers. And when I say intense, I really do mean it! One scene with the farmhouse – eek! And the showdown too! But the end was a huge sting which I loved!
Until the next time xxx
