The Girl With No Past: A Gripping Psychological Thriller

I received this e-book in exchange for an honest review from +NetGalley. All opinions within are of my own and they may differ from person to person.

Synopsis from Amazon:

Leah Mills lives a life of a fugitive – kept on the run by one terrible day from her past. It is a lonely life, without a social life or friends until – longing for a connection – she meets Julian. For the first time she dares to believe she can live a normal life.
Then, on the twentieth anniversary of that day, she receives a card. Someone knows the truth about what happened. Someone who won’t stop until they’ve destroyed the life Leah has created.
But is Leah all she seems? Or does she deserve everything she gets?
Everyone has secrets. But some are deadly.
Pages: 300

The Review:
As with any book, I had likes and dislikes. One of the things I didn't like was how dependent Leah, the main character in this book is. She lives a life of solidarity and claims she wants to stick to that, yet she's constantly worrying about whether her love interest will turn up in her life. 

On the other hand, I really liked the way things turned out. It took me awhile to get into the book, but I'm glad I stuck with it until the end because the twist was perfect. There were actually two twists which left me a little spoiled because I did not expect either one of them at all!

This book isn't hard to read at all, everything goes together smoothly. I probably would have finished the book in a day or two had I had a copy in my hands, (I despise e-books, but I love having them on my phone just in case). The characters were very well-developed, and I felt betrayed by one at a certain part in the story. I couldn't believe Adam would do something so horrible! I kind of want to know more of his story. Give me a book about how he got so screwed up, Croft!

Have you read this book yet? Does it seem like something you'd like to read? If so, tell me below!
