She managed to get her life back on track and everything seems to be going well for her, until Thomas Chronister enters her life. Thomas seems to be an extraordinarily kind young man from England. He is always helpful and seems to only want the best for Karen and her family.
But when Karen gets to know him better, she discovers that he is hiding something from her. She is determined to find out what it is that he is so desperately keeping away from her. Even though Thomas knows she is on to him, he keeps denying that he has something to hide.
When Karen eventually discovers his peculiar secrets, it sets in motion a series of strange and sometimes inexplicable happenings, which make Karen realize her life might just have changed for good.
Thank you to Simone for asking me to review this book!
I was intrigued from the first page when I picked this up. I loved the mystery surrounding Thomas, and how he was acting. It added so much mystery to the story, that I couldn’t help but become immersed into it!
Whilst I was reading it, I definitely felt that it was Twilight-esque due to the forbidden love between Thomas and Karen, and because of the insta-love that was so prominent throughout the novel. The insta-love was sometimes a bit too much for me personally, but the overall plot helped to balance it out!
There was so much depth to each character that I was so impressed throughout it. Thomas had so many mysteries surrounding them, and how each one was resolved or how it came to light was written so well. The relationship between Karen and her brothers was so realistic, and I loved that she had that balance in her life. It was heart warming to read about!
The ending was extremely clever, and I loved how the story came full circle. It left me with so many questions, and ended on the perfect cliffhanger, that made me praying there was another book! I just hope that the second book is released over here, or else there’ll be a lot of unanswered questions, which would be sad!
This book had a great balance of mystery, thriller, and brilliantly developed characters. If you’re looking for a short book that is filled with excitement, and Twilight-esque romance, this is your book!
