I did it all for you…

Cara’s boyfriend is dead.

When fingers start pointing at her, she knows she’s in more trouble than she originally thought. Because Cara can see that something isn’t right.

As her carefully constructed life begins to crumble, Cara isn’t sure who she is anymore.

But maybe that’s exactly what someone wants her to think…


I don’t like the main character – at all.  And, given the way she is written, I suspect that was the author’s intention.  She was self centred, vapid and just generally not nice.

This book ended up being just as much about her journey back as it was about finding the killer.  I thought that she just about redeemed herself.

Finally, whilst the ultimate reveal was a surprise, there was a lot about this story which pushed the boundaries of belief a little too far.

That said, this was a reasonable story, with well developed characters and a decent plot line.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.
