Summary

Rachel's dead and she's never coming back. Or is she?

As she prepares for her wedding to Dominic, Catherine has never been happier or more excited about her future. But when she receives an anonymous package - a familiar snow globe with a very grisly addition - that happiness is abruptly threatened by secrets from her past.

Her older sister, Rachel, died on a skiing holiday as a child. But Rachel was no angel: she was vicious and highly disturbed, and she made Catherine's life a misery. Catherine has spent years trying to forget her dead sister's cruel tricks. Now someone has sent her Rachel's snow globe - the first in a series of ominous messages...

While Catherine struggles to focus on her new life with Dominic, someone out there seems intent on tormenting her. But who? And why now? The only alternative is what she fears most.

Is Rachel still alive?

Possibly a good story but ruined by narration

I tried very hard to persevere with this book but the narration was so appalling I had to give up- the ‘upper class’ accent was poor, inaccurate and simply irritating. Perhaps if it had a better narrator the book would be better - shame

Brilliant: Unexpected Final Twists

I've loved every Jane Holland book I've read, but this is my new favourite. Interesting, layered characters, plus a twisting, unusual plot, made this a genuine all-nighter of a read. I couldn't switch this off.

I grew up on thrillers and crime novels (probably from too young an age) and I spotted the first "twist" a few chapters in, if that. The story was still masterfully written, with the unreliable narrator revealing her instabilities bit by bit, in a way that built rich, believable main characters. It says much that, despite seeing where the primary plot arc was heading, I was enthralled by the storytelling, and I was enjoying the tale immensely until 2/3 of the way in.

Then, the OTHER twists took me almost completely by surprise. For every surprise I'd half-guessed, there were two more that came as an utter shock. The last 25-30% of this book was a rollercoaster ride, and one that I'm sorry I can't experience again. Bloody marvellous.

The performance was excellent as well, with real depths of emotion and changing vocal nuances that helped to make each character's voice distinct and memorable; very reliable performance, with each character having the same tone and accent throughout. The one Brummie accent does fall a bit short of the others, but otherwise, I can't fault the voice actor at all. Wonderful listening experience.

Had it figured out 1/4 way thru

What could have been an intriguing storyline was made totally blah by the obvious plot twist. I didn't finish it.

Less than halfway through and I want to quit.

It is very difficult to find someone to like in this book, and I believe that is a mixture of the writing and the narration. The main character of a story should cause the reader to feel something for them and I feel annoyed which may be the point. She talks when she should be silent and shuts up when she needs to interact with another character. This was a free read so I'm not upset but had high hopes and will try simply reading the story instead of listening to the narrator's interpretation.

Strange Ending

The story was good but the ending was just nothing. There was no consequences really for the main characters behavior and it was just kind of left there hanging. It was a find story until the end.

Rollercoaster ride!

I LOVED it. I truly did not see THAT coming. not at all. the twists and turns in this book weren't predictable at all.

First we have Cat, with wonderful but stuffy parents and a gorgeous fiance. She volunteers with a good bank.

But then things start to happen that make her doubt that her evil sister truly died. She begins to suspect that her sister has come back to ruin her life.

oh boy

The more things happen, the more people don't believe her and the more she spirals out of control.

And....... I don't want to give away the ending because it'll blow you away. All I'll say is it has a sweet, happy ending.

Good but somewhat imature

I do not have eleven words. I could repeat the same word and exclamations over and over like this author or editor felt would make for better resding. I believe it diminished the tensions that could enhance the story.
