What It’s About..
At a gala party thrown by her parents, Evelyn Hardcastle will be killed–again. She’s been murdered hundreds of times, and each day, Aiden Bishop is too late to save her. Doomed to repeat the same day over and over, Aiden’s only escape is to solve Evelyn Hardcastle’s murder and conquer the shadows of an enemy he struggles to even comprehend–but nothing and no one are quite what they seem.
Can you imagine what it would be like to wake up in someone else’s body and have absolutely no idea who or where you are?
Talk about a mind-blowing read! Seriously, this was like slap you in the face, kick you in the crotch good!!
I have not read a mystery novel this good in a very long time! In fact, I was in a slump with this genre for quite some time now. I had almost given up on reading anymore mystery & thrillers until I was fortunate enough to snag a copy of this gem.
Do you remember the game Clue?
This was just like that with a hint of Hercules Poirot, but even better. Just when you thought you had an ah-ha moment, Turton throws you for another twist and palm-sweating moments.
Despite my list of suspects and notes, I was still stumped until the end.
And the end..
Brilliant! Just Brilliant!! 👏👏👏 SO DID NOT see that coming!
OMG..There were so many great characters!
Very witty & cunning. She is not what you think.
One word: GENIUS
I actually had a bit of a love/hate for him. I admired his determination and heart, but his stubborness made him weak and at times I wanted grab him by the collar and shake the crap outta him.
OMG! This guy was always one step ahead of you! If you wanna talk about creepy, he totally had Jack the Ripper vibes.
Some of my tips if you plan to read it:
– There’s alot going on and many characters, which can make it confusing. All you need to remember is that the main character becomes 8 different people. Thankfully, the author labels each day that takes place and some of the info repeats itself.
-Even if you reached 40-50% of the book, don’t bother trying to skip to the end to see what happens! (Yea..you know you do it!) Believe me, I tried and it won’t make any sense unless you see the story through. You won’t truly KNOW, until you have ALL the facts.
But don’t fret, it’s such an action packed and mind boggling read, even if you don’t know what’s going on in the first few chapters, you’ll still want to keep reading.
