This book weaves the lives of two people and one family together in such a thrilling way! I loved the perspective of the three main characters. I kept bouncing all over the place about what was actually going on, and I didn’t really understand until the end, so I got to enjoy all the surprises!
This story comes down to a girl (Saffyre) feeling a bit lost after stopping her therapy sessions. An accidental run-in with her ex-therapist creates a stalking situation where she feels the need to watch what he is doing. When she goes missing, she was last seen standing in Roan’s yard, but the man across the street seems like a likely suspect. What happened to Saffyre?
The story follows Saffyre POV as well as Roan’s wife (Cate), and the man across the street (Owen). Saffyre’s POV is behind the present timeline a bit, so after reading Cate and Owen’s views, you get a bit of extra insight into what happened as Saffyre tells her story. I really liked the plot coming together this way. I was extremely invested in the story and couldn’t wait to see what happened next!
This has plenty of twists and turns as the story unfolds, some of them may be guessable, but others took me by surprise. I thought the ending was exciting and didn’t leave too many loose ends. I closed the book quite happy with the resolution.
Overall, I thought this was an easy, exciting read that was hard to put down. I found myself thinking about what was going to happen next when I wasn’t reading, so it was easy to sit back down and get back into the story. I liked the characters, and thought the mystery was perfect!
