I was fortunate to receive this novel from Netgalley.com as an Advance Reader Copy, in exchange for an objective review.

Oh my goodness, this book was awesome!!

The story opens in a prologue that describes the first meeting between two unnamed teen women who find themselves sharing a room at a psychiatric hospital, before the opening chapter begins in present day, where Olympic hopeful Mindy Wright is preparing herself for a trip down the mountain in effort to win the championship and secure a berth on the Olympic Ski Team. A snowstorm has started, making visibility dicey, and Mindy hits a flag and crashes, fracturing her leg in the process. Surgery seemingly goes without incident until the doctors tell Lauren, Mindy’s mom, that Mindy has leukemia and needs immediate treatment.

As Mindy’s family lines up to be tested for donor suitability, it becomes apparent that none of them are biologically related to Mindy, a fact that stuns the group, as Lauren has always passed Mindy off as her own. Lauren’s sister Juliet, a DNA specialist for the CBI, takes matters into her own hands and attempts to find Mindy’s biological parents, as Mindy gets sicker and sicker. She is successful, and the truth comes gradually to light as Mindy meets her biological father and learns of her past. But the past and the present collide, and a killer will do anything to keep their secrets hidden…

I loved this book! It grabs you from the moment you read the first paragraph and doesn’t let you go until you reach the very end – and still you wish it would go on! An amazing edge-of-your-seat thriller that you don’t want to miss!!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
