Not sure why this is labeled as horror. To me, it was a sad story. It makes you think you have it all figured it out but when everything unravels, a painful reality is discovered and I felt sorry for all the main characters.

Oh. My. God. This was absolutely terrifying and at the level of a Gone Girl and The Girl On The Train. I couldn’t let go of this book and absolutely devoured it. The way the story is built is incredible and really superbly crafted, it made me go through a whole range of emotions. And the end was absolutely masterful! For anyone looking for a thrill I couldn’t recommend this book more.

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I've been hearing a lot of buzz about this novel lately. It deserves it. I went in knowing almost nothing and I think that is how a reader should go in. This novel was instantly engaging, hard to read a times and constantly kept me guessing about what was happening. The audiobook narrator is FANTASTIC. I can't state that strongly enough. This book was horror but also a mystery but also really emotional at times. If you want some thing new and different, read it.
