Aubrey thinks Tom is dragging his feet where their relationship is concerned so she is determined to take things into her own hands and kill Melissa but comes to like her and has a change of heart. Eventually she discovers that maybe she just imagined Tom being in love with her and sending her texts etc. and also discovers that he has been switching out Melissa’s supplements for caffeine and other OTC drugs that would be detrimental to her health.
Will Aubrey be able to convince Melissa that Tom is trying to poison her and what will happen to her in the end?
This was a great read from beginning to end and kept me guessing all the way. I love it when an author can make you THINK you understand what’s going on and in the next sentence has you completely changing your mind.
Loved it and the cover and highly recommend it.
I got this book free in exchange for a fair and honest review.
