Very easy read. Started off a tad slow. I couldn’t figure out how the author was going to tie everything together. I thought the end was perfect and I didn’t see it coming, it was one of those “OMG” moments. I really enjoyed this book.

I lost respect for this book early on. Read in some ways more like a tacky romance novel and the double narration got wearing after a while. I agree that the suspense is real, but felt the ending was flat. Don't bother.

Wow.... this was a real page-turner! Two girls who grow up as best friends, but there are secrets between them. Someone knows everything, but who? To be honest, I can't write too much about this novel for fear of giving it away, but I found it impossible to second-guess and figure out who did what to whom. Excellent read!
