You can never forget a murder, especially when it happens to someone you know. Tessa left Fayette, Pennsylvania far behind her after moving out of state. But with her father’s illness getting worse, she is forced to return. Once she comes back, things start to slowly make less and less sense. Tessa begins questioning everything she thought she knew. Did Wyatt Stokes, the man that nine-year-old Tessa claimed killed Lori, really do the deed?
When I began reading this book, I wasn’t sure what to think of it. I don’t read very many murder mysteries, so I didn’t know what to expect. I’m happy to say that I was amazed by this book. From page one I was hooked on the storyline and Tessa, the main character. The plot twists had my head reeling almost every chapter. It was well written and didn’t bore me once.
All the characters in this novel were interesting in their own way. My favorite character was Tessa, who had a very strong will. She demanded to know the truth at all times, and I felt that that was a very strong character trait.
By far, my favorite part of the book were the last chapters. Though the book was suspenseful throughout the entirety of it, the last chapters really had my head spinning (in a good way).
This book is an excellent read for anyone who likes murder mysteries and who is looking for a great twist-filled book with an excellent writing style and relatable characters.
