You do the same thing every day.
You know exactly where you're going.
You're not alone.
When Zoe Walker sees her photo in the classifieds section of a London newspaper, she is determined to find out why it's there. There's no explanation: just a website, a grainy image and a phone number. She takes it home to her family, who are convinced it's just someone who looks like Zoe. But the next day the advert shows a photo of a different woman, and another the day after that.
Is it a mistake? A coincidence? Or is someone keeping track of every move they make . .
I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
Man oh man what did I read? Let me tell you this I was so caught up in this book that when the ending came about I was thinking to myself OH NO SHE DIDN'T GO THERE!!! I loved the ending.
So Zoe is a single mom of two, who is in a relationship with Simon and trying to live day to day.
When she sees her picture in the paper it has her uneasy even though no one wants to really believe it is her. Then it starts getting a bit crazier as Zoe starts seeing others and knows that something else has to be going on, but will she be a victim as well. It seems that someone out there is playing a game with unsuspecting women.
Then in pops up Kelly an officer who is determine to investigate who is putting people in the newspaper. What they end up uncover is something that is HUGE! It just goes too show you that you can never truly trust anyone.
While Kelly is investigating she is also coming to terms with her twin sister's decision to move on with her life. It is like the two things that Kelly is dealing with go hand to hand in some way.
We go back and forth between the different P.O.V.'s of Kelly and Zoe and for me it was not confusing at all.
Can't wait to read more by this author.
Characters! Zoe is kind of plain just trying her best to make it and support her family. Though we see her start to panic and really see just how much she cares for her family when put into a situation. It made it exciting.
Kelly the police officer. I liked her she came into the story just running the show. She didn't back down when not finding answers she kept trying until she got what she needed. I hope we get more books with Kelly in it, because I think we got just a small taste of who she really is and what she can do.
I can't wait to read more by this author. I love how she is able to just pull you in and have you guessing until the end to find out who dun it.
