Viola’s always been that girl from that family, so a scholarship to a prestigious private school in Florida was supposed to be her ticket out of poverty and into a brand-new life. But Viola’s secrets have followed her. Her relationship with the intelligent and gorgeous Riel should have been the salvation she needed—he understands her troubled past better than anyone. But then weird things start to happen.
Missing personal items.
The unsettling feeling that she’s being watched.
Viola’s never been one to give her trust easily, but she’ll need to trust in Riel if she’s going to survive her stalker. Because she’s not fighting for a new life anymore—she’s fighting to stay alive.
I enjoyed this book a lot. The author has (for me at least) struck the right balance between the tension and the romantic element of the story.
I felt that the number of potential suspects was a well utilised narrative tool, because as a reader I was never entirely convinced about the identity of the stalker. You may guess who it is, you may not, but the unfolding of the tale keeps the reader on edge and constantly revisiting the list of potential suspects.
A well executed tale.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
