This book definitely has some of the elements of a good thriller. There are some secrets and good twists. But overall, I fear it may disappoint fans of the thriller genre. I think it may appeal more to fans of romance and women’s fiction, who are perhaps a bit ‘thriller-curious.’
I’d also really only recommend this to those who are happiest reading commercial fiction. Otherwise, you may be frustrated by the writing and dialogue, which tend towards the simplistic. Not exactly my cup of tea, but if you’re good with highly commercial fiction and looking for a mindless beach read for the summer, this could be it.
Sienna Scott grew up in the dark shadow of her mother’s paranoid delusions. Now, she's returned home to confront her past and the unsolved murder that altered the course of her life.
In her mother’s shuttered house, an old fear that has haunted Sienna for years rears its ugly head—that it was she who had been the killer’s target that night. And now, with it, a new fear—that the killer not only intended to remedy his past mistake—he’s already begun. But are these fears any different from the ones that torment her mother?
As the walls close in, the line between truth and lie, reality and delusion disintegrate. Has Sienna’s worst nightmare come true? Or will she unmask a killer and finally prove she may be her mother’s look-alike, but she’s not her clone?
