Description from the publisher through Netgalley
From the author of It’s Always the Husband comes a riveting new suspense novel about privilege, power, and what happens when we let ambition take control.
For Rose Enright, enrolling in a prestigious New England boarding school is the opportunity of a lifetime. But for Rose’s vulnerable twin sister Bel, Odell Academy is a place of temptation and danger. When Bel falls in with a crowd of wild rich kids who pressure her into hazing Rose, the sisters’ relationship is shattered. Rose turns to her dorm mother, Sarah Donovan, for advice. But Bel turns to Sarah’s husband Heath, a charismatic and ambitious teacher. Is Heath trying to help Bel or take advantage of her? In a world of privilege, seduction, and manipulation, only one sister will live to tell the truth.
In a novel full of twists, turns, and dark secrets, Michele Campbell once again proves her skill at crafting intricately spun and completely compelling plots.
Although the story was captivating in its’ own way, the plot was disturbing. I found myself not really wanting to read too much more but I wanted to finish the story. I did know the ending for the most part, it wasn’t really a surprise. I don’t want to give the story line away so I won’t go into detail, but the writing style was good. I own but have not yet read her other novel, It’s Always the Husband. I will give that a chance to see how I feel about Michelle’s books in general.
I gave this book 3 crowns.
I received this E-ARC from the publishers through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
