Wow what a fantastic book, totally thrilling and captivating!
A tangled web of lies and secrets is masterfully woven by Barbara Copperthwaite in this psychological thriller. It is my first book by Barbara and I was hooked right from page one, I will definitely be reading more. All the way through I was thinking that I knew what was going to happen, I was so wrong.
This book is a rollercoaster of emotions, it’s dark, it’s disturbing, it’s shocking but there is an element of innocence too. Most of all it is heartbreakingly sad. There is also a touch of truth as the scenarios in the book could happen in any family. That’s the scary part! This book is nail biting, it will take your breath away.
I seriously could not put this book down; I had to keep reading and turning pages to see what was going to happen. I liked the format of the story how it was current and went back a few days to give a back story. All the way through I kept changing my mind on the final outcome it really kept me guessing right to the very end. I really did not guess what was going to happen at the end it was a real surprise which was nice but shocking!
I liked everything about this book, the style of writing, the characters, and the storyline; there was not one thing that I didn’t like about this book.
Her Last Secret gets a big fat 5 stars from me, I totally recommend this book it is an awesome read.
You need to read this book it is amazing!
