Thanks NetGalley and Craven Ink Press for the ARC of this amazing psychological thriller!
Gwen’s next door neighbor is a nightmare. The ongoing feud has turned into too much and Gwen, a nurse in an ER, needs to get away for a few days. On her long weekend hiking, she meets a handsome stranger. But when she wakes up the next morning, he’s gone. Three days later, the same man is brought into the ER with injuries, as well as memory loss. Then, someone begins stalking Gwen’s home and she’s pretty sure it’s her neighbor – he loves to make her life miserable. What if it isn’t him though, and this stranger with no memory is the reason behind all the scary things happening to Gwen?
This book blew me away! I was fully engaged right from the beginning, and it kept my attention throughout. The story is told from two timelines, the now and the before, but the before is only a short period of time before the now, so that aren’t so far apart. MacKenzie artfully keeps the reader guessing as to what is going on. I couldn’t put the book down because I needed to know how it was all going to play out. I did figure out one twist, but I think the author wanted the reader to figure it out before “announcing” it. However, there was one twist that I did NOT see coming at ALL. My mind was blown! I can’t recommend this book enough!
