'...McNeill kept dangling me above the motivation until she finally explained it to me. I highly recommend this book to everyone.'
3 stars. 'Subtly creepy, McNeills latest sneaks up on the reader with its eerie storyline. But some of the plot points and motives dont really work together. The buildup and eventual reveal fall a bit flat in the scope of the book. Overall, its an original twist on the wrongly accused victim trying to exonerate herself, and will keep readers interested throughout.
