Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with a digital arc in exchange for an honest Review! 

I am not a big Mystery reader, I wanted to try diverse genres this year and fortunately, Netgalley accepted my request.

Carrie is a famous producer and Adrian is an award-winning writer, They are power couple of industry and planning on working together when Carrie got pregnant which wasn’t in their life plan. Here comes Emma a young struggling writer who got fortunate enough to get a chance to temporary fill the Carrie job.

It is the story which left you wondering who is who and what is what, you maybe can guess who is bad or good but there are more layers than this.

I thoroughly enjoyed the writing, For me, all of these characters were equally a bit psycho. The ending was unexpected for me. The story could be a bit better still It was enjoyable.

It is filled with family, jealousy,conspiracy, misunderstanding, and drama.

    I’m intrigued by mysteries and trying to read them like yourself. Widening your reading genres is exciting and your review of this has made me want to try it. Amanda Brooke writes mystery books that are slightly easier to read than some others 😁
