It all comes down to this. Oliver, Ethan, and I. Three teens venture into an abandoned lake house one night. Hours later, only two emerge from the burning wreckage. Chloe drags one Reznick brother to safety, unconscious and bleeding. The other is left to burn, dead in the fire. But which brother survives? And is his death a tragic accident? Desperate self-defense? Or murder ...? Chloe is the only one with the answers. As the fire rages, and police and parents demand the truth, she struggles to piece the story together - a story of jealousy, twisted passion and the darkness that lurks behind even the most beautiful faces ...
What I loved about Dangerous Girls was that it had a story-line that kept developing over time. Every chapter led us closer to the person who ultimately killed Elise. But with this one, there really wasn’t that defining story that kept me turning the pages.
I was still pretty interested in it, but not as interested as the Dangerous Girls. Right off the bat, I knew there was something off about the brothers. But what I wasn’t expecting was the change in Chloe. Now that was a nail biter for sure. Sitting on the edge of my seat, wondering what was happening in the three different parts..It was all so exciting. I can’t wait for more from Abigail and her stories. She’s definitely made me a fan of her thrillers.
There’s just something about Abigail’s way of writing that makes you want to sit down and take notice. Wonderfully crafted with characters that are never who they seem to be, she writes with a skilled hand. Definitely recommended for anyone who enjoys a good thriller! I’m adding Abigail Haas as one of my favourite thriller writers. I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for us. Here’s hoping she can also do some adult books too.
