They say you never forget your first love. What they don’t say, though, is that sometimes your first love won’t forget you…
…a compulsive debut about a missing woman, a tangled love triangle, the secrets we keep, and the secrets we share.
Sitting in a police station interrogation room for hours, Angela Petitjean is being questioned regarding a missing woman, Saskia Parker. Although Angela claims she knows nothing, all evidence points to her. Meanwhile, Homicide Detective J. Novak believes Angela is guilty. While he continues to question her, Angela tells her story from a decade ago, when she met HP in high school. They’d gone from being friends to being in love. And then it all changed when Angela went away to college, their love story suddenly falling apart. Then Saskia came into their lives.
I really enjoyed reading this story. The narration was well-written and I was curious to know more, although I had occasional frustrations with Angela and HP because of their choices, but that’s what made the story worth reading. Of course, I won’t spoil anything, but as the story progressed, I didn’t feel sorry for Angela or HP. No matter, I had to know where it all was going to end. If you’re interested in checking out the book, you’ll know what I mean.
