“This one was special. This was the woman. We were meant to be…I don’t want a new one. I want her…”Only ever you.”
Nora Robertson grew up as a happy child. However; life wasn’t always fair when her parents died in an accident she was forced to take care of herself at only twelve years of age. Even when she found a wonderful support family which she found with Angela and daughter Aubry she found that her shy personality and inability to speak her mind got the worst of her.
“Fear is a funny thing. It changes the way you think. It alters your being. I’ve learned the heart is a wild beast, that’s why it is caged inside our ribs, that monsters are real and they look like humans and that love is a fickle beast.”
Traumatized by an awful evening she decided to move away for the summer to a job she found tutoring an eleven year old girl. The job sounded too good to be true but she was bound to leave no matter what. What she found there in that isolated cabin was something she never expected; something that will have all readers in the edge of their seats. The fight to survive was strong but can survival means becoming someone you can’t recognize?! Nora found herself in this situation after terrible events her mind started playing tricks on her and she started giving into her darkness.
I really enjoyed this fast past story. The author did a great job giving us a suspenseful read that will you keep wanting to know how this will all end. I was literally nervous as hell; I found myself trying to find the answers to this crazy case. This book was told by multiple points of views which I found it very interesting and necessary. Even though the book was told mainly from Nora’s point of view I feel the other views were needed to solve this case. We get to see the minds of the Agent investigating Nora’s case. When Nora was finally able to get free from her nightmare she was confronted with a new reality which wasn’t easy for her. I enjoyed reading the doctor’s point of view as well she was an interesting character; I liked how she was able to help Nora exactly when she needed it. Then we have the best friend Aubry, Eve one of the victims that escaped and Eve little sister and of course we have to have HIS point of view as well which made me connect much more in the story.
“We all have demons. I simply chose to feed mine in order to survive.”
I found myself conflicted between wrong and right. In one way I understood Nora’s circumstances as well as the bad guy. I actually wanted it to end a little different (don’t ask me why) I just did. Perhaps I have a soft spot for damage people and I just wanted to be their hero haha. Overall, I enjoyed this book it was well written, the story was excellent and readers who enjoy murder mystery detective books will find themselves attracted to this story.
