HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
It is such an exciting time to go to university especially if it means being independent for the first time and house-sharing with other students. The only thing is the house-sharing is normally with complete strangers that know nothing about each other. Imogen, Amber, Teagan and Pheonix were complete strangers with some pretty hefty baggage that they didn’t want to bring with them. Then just across the hall, there was Riku, a man that kept himself to himself. This was a time to start a clean slate and build the futures they were aiming for, not looking back on.
It isn’t long before one of the roommates goes missing and Imogen is determined to find out where she has gone or what has happened to her. Once she starts looking then she sees things that hadn’t been obvious before, like someone watching them from a distance but always managing to hide their face. If she is going to get anywhere she can’t do this herself so she talks her roommates into helping.
I must admit that my favourite character in this story is Teagan. She has tried to hide her background but luckily for the group, she has learnt some pretty dodgy stuff from her past. She is sassy and confident, just what they need.
The story began as a mystery to be solved but as it unfolds and these reluctant amateur sleuths dig deeper to find their missing roommate I realised it had turned into a top rate thriller. The pace had increased and the dangers had escalated tenfold. I couldn’t put this book down there was no place to stop. A super read.
I wish to thank NetGalley and the publisher for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
