I never expected the killer in this novel. I kept reading and I think I read it in about 2 sittings. Lots of surprises and chills in this suspenseful mystery about a serial killer who is killing young stay-at-home moms in a nice, suburban town where Tasha Banks has moved. Tasha has dreamed of living in a town like this, but her dream becomes a nightmare as her friends and neighbors begin dying, one by one.
I really liked this book. What a great thriller!!! The plot was full of twist and surprises that kept me guessing to the end. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a all night read. Once you start it you will not want to put it down.
This was a quick read, but not something I'd read again. The dialogue of the 3-year-old character was so unrealistic that it took away from my reading experience! It was distracting.
The end of the book seemed to wrap up loose ends in a hurry. The story-line was a good one, but it was quite unrealistic. I like my realistic fiction to be more realistic. There were too many twists for me. I didn't stay up late wondering what was going to happen next.
Townsend Heights is the perfect small town. Sleepy, tree-lined streets. Good schools. A quick commute to the city. The sort of peaceful, suburban existence Tasha Banks dreamed of living when she left her fast-paced career for full-time motherhood. But now, Tasha's perfect dream is turning into a terrifying nightmare. Someone is targeting women in Townsend Heights--and not just any women. A serial killer is looking for a particular kind of prey...young, stay-at-home mothers...exactly like Tasha. One by one, Tasha's friends are disappearing, only to die in horrific ways. Suddenly, terror is transforming Townsend Heights into a sinister place of fear and foreboding--a place where evil lurks behind every corner, hiding behind the mask of a familiar face--a face that may be the last one Tasha ever sees...
