Twenty-eight-year-old Maggie Sparkes arrives in New York City to pack up what's left of her best friend's belongings after a suicide that has left everyone stunned. The police have deemed the evidence conclusive: Celine got into bed, downed a bottle of Xanax and a handle of vodka, and never woke up. But when Maggie discovers secrets in the childhood lock box hidden in Celine's apartment, she begins asking questions. Questions about the man Celine fell in love with. The man she never told anyone about, not even Maggie. The man who Celine herself claimed would be her ruin.
On the hunt for answers that will force the police to reopen the case, Maggie uncovers more than she bargained for about Celine's private life--and inadvertently puts herself on the radar of a killer who will stop at nothing to keep his crimes undiscovered.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I don’t re-read often, but when I was asked to review the new paperback I was all for it. Having re-read this book has made me want to start re-reading more. It allows you to catch some things you didn’t necessarily see before and it allows you to feel some things you didn’t feel before. It’s quite awesome. Now, into the actual review of the book.
This book, even the second time around, was just as thrilling and mind-blowing as before. Even though I knew what was going to happen I was still captivated from beginning to end. The first time I read this one I was completely wrong with what was going on or who did what. Now, with this time, even though I knew, I was still along for the crazy twists and turns it took. I was still so shocked when things happened because I can’t believe I was so blind to them before. You really think you know, but you don’t.
You get to see the story of Maggie, the girl who takes an unfortunate visit to New York after her best friend had killed herself. Maggie, on the other hand, does not think Celine killed herself. Even though she hasn’t seen her best friend in some time does not mean she doesn’t know her…or does it?
Maggie walks into a world she never even thought was real. Seeing the life Celine had led was a wake up call to Maggie. She didn’t expect any of this. But with every new thing she learns about Celine’s hidden life is a new question she has about what really happened to her. Now with a million questions running through Maggie’s head she will do whatever it takes to find out how Celine really died.
Maggie is one persistent fighter and I love that about her. Like I said above, she will do whatever it takes to find out what happened to her best friend. Even though she found some things out about Celine she didn’t want to believe were true so she still loved her friend. She used everything she learns and runs with it. But, even after learning things about Celine she never fails to stay true to her gut instinct. The only thing about Maggie I didn’t like was some questionable tasks she took. I mean with everything she went through I can understand, but as a reader, it just frustrated me.
You will be in for a wild ride, my friends. The twists and turns are never ending. You question everyone in this book. EVERYONE. This book keeps you on your toes and you never want to put it down. If you want a book that you can finish in a day, pick this one up. You will not regret it.
