This is third book by the author but first one that I have read.

.

It is a psychological thriller with three girls at the centre of a twisty turny and layered story. There is one promise that they need to protect at evwry cost.

.

.

At their boarding school with strict nuns and priests, they face horror and pain which is still threatening to resurface and create chaos.

.

.Then a thrilling journey starts to control the events which go out of hand so often and so easily.

.

.

But even after having so many turns and characters it is relatively easy and flowing read. Never at a point you have to stretch your memory to link chapters and events.

.

.

Writing is simple and author creates scenes clearly with simple sentences.
Characters are developed nicely and you could see the whole thinking process of each.

.

.

What I didn’t like was first half of book where sometimes book stands still and looses all flow. Not a leaf in garden moves. But afterwards it picks up pace and suspects keep changing rapidly in second half of the book.
.
It is nice that author has avoided going into complex minute details of everything and there are few things that reader has to imagine.

.

But at last you feel everything is clearly clarified and explained. One could never suspect till end who the main offender was and all links connect at last.
.
One whole chapter dedicated to what happens to each character after the justice has been delivered. That is nice to know what fate each one beget after long struggle.
.
I liked the book but wish its first half could match second half. Looking forward to read other two books of author.

.

.Already thinking about opening ‘”I am watching you.”

Thanks netgalley and author for review copy.
