Rating: 4/5

When Sophia discovers that her parents had been burglarised and murdered she doesn't understand anything. Why? Her parents were good people and never did any harm. But then, she discovered some notebooks her mother wrote and learnt that everything was a lie... Ready?

"Something was wrong in the grove at the back. Something was there that shouldn't be there.
I leaned against the window, peering hard through the grass. There was a shape amongst the trees -a human shape, barely visible through the leafy branches.
A shape with extended, dangling feet."

As we start reading this book we don't know what to expect, there are a lot of secrets hidden in the past of Sophia's parents, but enough to kill for something that happened a long time ago? Page after page we discover all that Sophia's parents hide from her; with an absorbing diary full of unexpected stories, but again, enough to kill someone?
This is an intense and atmospheric read, that everything points to an amazing discovery, but what starts with frightening the read is if after Sophia discovers the truth, will she be the next victim? Because after reading the notebooks, the paranoia seems to start hunting Sophia... or is the grieve talking? I've read a lot of books where the main character thinks is being followed but no one believes them, let me say that if it ever happens this to me, I hope my loved ones at least will try to discover the truth instead of ignoring me, because you never know who could be following you... or in this case Sophia... Who could be following her? So many questions...
Ready for a book full of drama, mystery and twists?
