With no sign of Willow to be found, Rose takes up the search for answers about the deaths that shook a small Cornish village eighteen years before. But what is the connection between Willow and the two sisters marked by tragedy?
Time is running out.
Someone knows where Willow is and what happened all those years ago. And they will do anything to stop the truth from coming out.
Can Rose find Willow and the answers she needs, before it’s too late?

My Thoughts

I was totally glued to this book, with some surprising twists and a chilling atmosphere which will make you scared from your own shadow!
First of all, the story is told between the present and the past; Willow’s mother was killed a long time ago, now she has disappeared investigating the murder. Her sister-in-law Rose will not stop until she discovers the truth and finds Willow alive, of course… but there are so many possible killers surrounding her that she will have to risk her life to uncover the truth.
I really liked the story from the past, Willow’s mother, Ava, is a really sweet girl, sadly her family had some issues, specially her sister who went missing the same night she was killed. Did she really kill Ava for jealousy? There are some other possible killers, almost everyone, let’s be honest, I even doubt that the mother, to clear the family reputation, decided to kill both… But, expect the unexpected, and you’ll find the killer in this story!
On the other hand we will have the story from the present, Rose, who is a brave mother with a teenage girl Becky. She was getting on my nerves since the first moment. Knowing that there was a killer and that her aunt was missing, she only complained when her mother asked her to stay at home or decided to go out with some strangers… really, the worst character for me. She will not help at all on the investigation, simply puts her life at risk one time after another!
The story is dark and hunting, and there are surprises for every reader, I am sure it will not leave you indifferent. The story is fully wrapped and with a very convincing ending which will be perfect for this Halloween night! Ready?
