My Opinion:
This story was fantastic!
It left me thinking that I just got a lesson in how cruel karma can really be.
I didn't expect such a surprise ending and honestly, the times I thought I had it all figured out, turns out I was way off the mark.
A page turner for sure!


5/5


Recommend? YES!!!
