Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
That was the day I met Gus, the day I grew a family as if from magic beans, the day she died. That's the point, see? It was the very same day
Jessie Constable has learned the hard way to always keep herself safe. But meeting Gus King changes everything. Before she knows it, Jessie is sleeping at Gus's house, babysitting his kids, becoming a part of his family. And yet, she can't ignore the unsettling questions. Who does she keep seeing from the corner of her eye? Why are strange men threatening her? Most importantly, what really happened to Gus's wife?
Creating a brilliant, foreboding mystery where nothing is as it seems, master storyteller Catriona McPherson weaves an ominous tale that will keep you guessing until the very end.

Jesse one of the main characters kept me bouncing back and forth. First, I felt sorry for her because she seemed to be a kindhearted person just trying to do the right thing. But then second, I wanted to shake and shake her because she was so obviously being taken advantage of. She was being put in situations that she felt she didn't have a choice and yet she really did. She kept feeling that something was not quite right and yet she wouldn't listen to her own inner warnings.
Despite that, I liked the story even though I was pretty sure from the beginning what was happening and how it would end. It may have been me, but I was confused by the ending. I kept reading it over and over. It ended as I had expected, but I had the strong feeling that I missed something. I didn't care for the way it was handled.
I'm not sorry that I read it. Would I recommend it to my friends? I very much doubt it.
