Synopsis from Goodreads...

Charlotte wants to start fresh. She wants to forget her past, forget prison and, most of all, forget Sean. But old habits die hard. Despite the ankle monitor she must wear as part of her parole agreement and frequent visits to her therapist, she soon finds herself sliding back toward the type of behavior that sent her to prison in the first place. The further down that path she goes, however, the closer she gets to the crime that put her in prison all those years ago. And that's the one memory she can't face. Until, one day, Sean tracks her down.Amy Lloyd, the international bestselling and award-winning author of The Innocent Wife, returns with a chilling portrait of a woman trying to be good, even when she isn't sure she wants to be.

My Review

Charlotte is desperate to put her painful past behind her and start a new life. It’s not an easy thing to do when people in her past won’t let her forget. What makes things even trickier is that she doesn’t fully remember everything from way back when.

I never read an Amy Lloyd book before but I quickly learned she knows how to weave tension and mystery throughout the book. Each chapter gives the reader a little more insight into Charlotte’s past but you don’t really know the full story until the very end.

The story goes back and forth between the past and the present. This technique helped to keep me at the edge of my seat until the last page. I wasn’t always sure I liked Charlotte, but I was definitely hooked on her story and wanted to know what happens next.

A good psychological thriller to keep you reading late into the night.
