A night she won’t forget…
When single mum Ivy wakes up to a complete stranger lying next to her, she knows her one-night stand hook-ups have to stop. The encounters mean nothing to Ivy, but for just a short time, they make her forget her own terrible life.
A murder she can’t remember
But then Ivy discovers the stranger in her bed has been stabbed to death, and she is covered in his blood…except Ivy has no recollection of bringing this man home. Could she have killed him?
As she tries to piece together what happened last night, Ivy’s own past returns to haunt her. And secrets can’t stay hidden forever…
It took me a bit to fully get into the story. I wasn’t understanding where and how everything fit together. The pieces were all over the place. The story changes between past, before, and present. I was intrigued by the events happening and hoped the story would pick up and even out. The past of Andrea and Philomena was a nice touch! I think that was my favorite part of the book. It eventually all comes together with twists and turns you don’t see coming. Although the book was a good read, I don’t know how I felt about the ending. That’s more of a personal preference than anything the author did.
This is a quick and good read. This is the second book by this author and I look forward to reading more of her work. I give this 3 stars.
