'Carries the reader along with a sense of foreboding, with a shocking twist at the end.' - L.F. Robertson, author of Two Lost Boys
'A breathless page-turner with gathering tension throughout.' - Rebecca Alexander, author of A Baby's Bones
How well do you know your girlfriend?
How well do you know your lover?
How well do you know yourself?
Daniel and Victoria are together. They're trying for a baby. Ruby is in prison, convicted of assault on an abusive partner. But when Daniel joins a pen pal program for prisoners, he and Ruby make contact. At first the messages are polite, neutral - but soon they find themselves revealing more and more about themselves. Their deepest fears, their darkest desires. And then, one day, Ruby comes to find Daniel. And now he must decide who to choose - and who to trust.

My thoughts
Rating: 5
Every now and then a book comes along that holds you captive from the very first page when that happens there is not letting go , this story is told in a unequal way that it makes it feel a bit dark and twisted and your seen it though one of the main character's eyes. There's no way I can explain why I liked it as much as I did but there's something about this story that just grabs you and won't let go , and that's the type of story I love to read ,the ones that gives you goosebumps and make you stay up late at night reading , as for the characters there the type of characters that make you rethink everything you think you know about them as well as the story. Its has the right type of mystery, suspense , and the question of who should you truest when you write letters to people . Plus it also makes you ask do you really know yourself as well as you think you do . With that said I want to say thank you to Netgalley  for letting me read and review it exchange for my honest opinion plus a thank you to the publisher for letting me request it to review and read.
