Description

Due to peer pressure Louise has blamed herself believing all these years that it was her fault that Maria had died that night.

The story follows Louise who gets a friend request on Facebook from a friend who died back in 1989, when they were in high school. The writing style was good, very easy to read, and I have a feeling I read it faster then my kindle would count. I’ve awarded 3 stars instead of 4, purely because it did its job so well as a psychological thriller and filled me with such anxiety I can’t confess to enjoying it!As secrets are revealed about Louise, the story's only point of view, we find she is carrying a huge amount of guilt from her high school days. To keep her secret, Louise must first uncover the whole truth, before what's known to Maria - or whoever's pretending to be her - is known to all. Even though this book wasn't particularly long, it took forEVER to read because so much of it was build-up (and the pay-off really wasn't as satisfying as it could have been).

Before he died, it seems, Felix Vodyanov was linked to a passenger ferry that sank in 1994, an even earlier U. Trying to piece together exactly what happened that night, she soon discovers there’s much she didn’t know. This would also make an incredible book club pick as it would generate some pretty interesting discussion and debate. She wanted to be friends with Louise but Louise was struggling to remain friends with a girl in the most popular group at school who didn't think Maria was "cool" and encouraged Louise in the actions that led to Maria's dramatic disappearance. It’s interesting as we don’t understand the lasting effect of people who’ve been bullied and traumatized at young and impressionable ages.The night Louise accepts Maria’s Facebook friend request which leads her to her reconnecting with Sophie sets off a chain of events for Louise that not only produces sleepless nights but could possibly put her successful interior design business in jeopardy. I thought this was done very well, the two stories unraveling at the same time, both of them kept me on the edge and kept me trying to figure this all out (and I never did). Now, many of us probably don't have to worry about dead old classmates coming back to life to haunt us, but it makes an excellent story in a book. For some reason right now I am just absolutely loving these new British authors and their psychological thrillers!

I wish that I could loosen this secret knot within me, a knot that is tied so tightly I don’t think anyone will ever be able to get their fingers into its intricacies to tug it apart, however hard they try. The author really knows how to pump up the suspense and tension until your head is spinning, trying to figure out who is telling the truth. As a debut novel, it is an accomplished achievement, and I will be keeping an eye on new releases from Laura Marshall.

Laura Marshall has written written a marvelous thriller that hits several hot tops from single parenting and online dating to bullying and social media and she doesn't shy away from these vulnerabilities in the least.
