A REVIEW FROM WENDY AT WALL-TO-WALL BOOKS
Wow! This is one you won’t want to miss! This story has just the rightamount of creepiness to make it fun and interesting. This book has a kind of “Stepford Wives” feel – yeah! its creepy like that.
A great, very original story-line mixed with excellent character development . This one would definitely make a good movie.
Lizanne was soooo weird! But I loved her! She is probably one of the strangest and snarkiest characters I have ever read about. Even with all her quirks she still managed to get into my heart. Its like my brain was saying – Noooo, she is too weird, but my heart was saying – awww come on, you know you love her!Then… the story goes totally off the wall with the whole prison romance! Like where did that come from? The whole time I am wondering “Where is this going, what does this have to do with the story?” Then – an “ah-ha” moment. I think I actually heard music in the back ground LOL. It all came together in the end. Great ending.
This book is definitely a roller coaster ride all the way! If you love creepy, snarky, quirky, and very suspenseful stories – you will love this book!
I do hope Jennifer Soosar continues to write because I certainly want to read more!
