I was kindly provided with a review copy of this book by Booklover Catlady Publicity in exchange for an honest review.
The next book in The Strangers series, sees Allie living with Bitty, her adoptive mother, and her son, Sammy. Johnny, Sammy’s father, is gone a lot and Allie is having serious doubts about her relationship with Johnny. Despite everything she went through, Allie has each a difficulty won peace living with Bitty and Sammy. Bitty is still fostering and when she takes in a set of twelve year old twin girls Zoe and Carrie Parrish, her respite from the fear and danger all her life returns with a vengeance.
Zoe and Carrie were found in their home huddled together in a wardrobe, whilst the bodies of their parents were found in another bedroom. Carrie is not talking and Zoe seems to have no recollection of what happened the night of her parents’ murder.
This thriller deals with difficult themes as Allie and Bitty both deal with the issues facing the New foster children in their care. Allies has a new found confidence and sense of responsibility, as well as a strong mother figure in Bitty.
He story of the twins, Zoe and Carrie, is terrifying and had me on the edge of my seat whilst the tale of what happened to the girls unravels. Although I have read the other books in The Strangers series, it is not necessary to have read them to enjoy this book, however, as griping as this book is, I think it lacked the edge of the first two in the series.
This book is available for pre-order from Amazon publication date is 3 May 2016. It will also be available to read for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
