story unfolds in pieces jumping back andorth between the past and present Piece by piece the truth comes to light Sometimes the alternating timeframes don t work so well or me but I think it helped build the suspense in this story and worked wellThat being said I wasn t as shocked by the big reveal as I expected to be Honestly it wasn t surprising at all If anything the culprit was so obvious that I dismissed it as a possibility Even though the person harassing Grace was not surprising the motivations came to light little by little Although they weren t particularly shocking either some were a little unexpected There were a ew details that I didn t anticipateOverall I give this one 35 stars It was good but Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis failed to provide the shocking twist that was promised

labeled as such by the author I didind myself ready to shake Grace out of her naivete state and deflate some of the air out of her head It appears that in some thrillers we wish only to hear the
