Traveling Sister Review with Kaceey.
The Girl Who Came Back is a fascinating, gripping and a fast-paced psychological thriller that had Kaceey and I hooked right from start to finish. Once we started, it quickly turned into an afternoon of us messaging each other with our theories and guesses till life needed our attention or I should say someone. Lol Kaceey had her game on with this and we made a pretty good team piecing this one together with Kaceey figuring out the twists. At least I wasn’t in left field again with this one.
Kerry Wilkinson does a great job creating an intriguing character here with our main character Olivia the girl who came back. Right from the start we were questioning her return and trying to figure out what secrets she was hiding. We were also intrigued by Lily’s story and the suspense increased as we tried to figure out how she was connected to the story. Kerry Wilkinson does a brilliant job weaving those two stories together and allowing us ok Kaceey to figure out the brilliant twists and keeping us interested right to the end
We really liked how the story came together in the end and were quite satisfied with the ending. In the end we were asking ourselves if “The past is the past and should some secrets remain buried”. We highly recommend!
Thank you NetGalley, Bookouture and Kerry Wilkinson for a copy to read and review.
Olivia disappeared from her back-yard garden at the tender age of 6. Gone in an instant. Her parents ultimately divorced, moving on with their lives as best they could. Her mother Sarah remarried and had a new baby. Her father Dan spiraled out of control and was left a crushed, defeated man.
When out of the blue, Little Olivia simply skips back into their lives as a teenager, some 13 years later, and no one can believe it…or her! Could it really be the same missing girl from so long ago? Or is this an imposter trying to embed herself into the lives of those so vulnerable and desperate to have her back.
Kerry Wilkinson delivers a very taught, twisty thriller that was extremely hard to put down. I was all-in from the beginning. I set aside a weekend to read this book but basically it took just over one day. (Interrupted only by work)!!
Although I did figure out some of the twists along the way, it certainly didn’t deter my enjoyment of this book at all!! I still hung on every word, even reading beyond the goals we set for ourselves!
My first book from this author and will definitely be on the look-out for more! Highly recommend for all psychological thriller lovers!
Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Kerry Wilkinson for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
