Thank you to St. Martin’s Press for gifting me a physical copy of this book to read and share my review with others.



Sienna Scott grew up in the dark shadow of her mother’s paranoid delusions. Now, she’s returned home to confront her past and the unsolved murder that altered the course of her life.

In her mother’s shuttered house, an old fear that has haunted Sienna for years rears its ugly head —that it was she who had been the killer’s target that night. And now, with it, a new fear—that the killer not only intended to remedy his past mistake—he’s already begun. But are these fears any different from the ones that torment her mother?

As the walls close in, the line between truth and lie, reality and delusion disintegrate. Has Sienna’s worst nightmare come true? Or will she unmask a killer and finally prove she may be her mother’s look-alike, but she’s not her clone?



This book had me hooked! Sienna’s grew up dealing with her mother’s mental health – her mother had paranoid delusions, and now many years later Sienna is fearful she is turning out to be just like her mother. Was Sienna truly suffering with her own mental health and did she have the same paranoid delusions her mother did, or is something else going on? Not sure what to believe we follow Sienna’s story unsure what’s true and what is not.

I enjoyed the suspense of not knowing what was truth or not, and guessing and second guessing along the way. A great book that will have you immersed in the story as you slowly uncover what is truly going on.


MY REVIEW: 5/5 stars
