They think they’re invincible.
They think they can do and say whatever they want. They think there are no consequences. They’ve left me no choice. It’s time for them to pay for their sins.
A weekend partying at a remote cabin is just what Mackenzie needs. She can’t wait to let loose with her friends. But a crazy night of fun leaves two of them dead—murdered.
With no signs of a forced entry or struggle, suspicion turns to the five survivors. Someone isn’t telling the truth. And Mackenzie’s first mistake? Assuming the killing is over…
I first saw this book on Netgalley last year and I just knew that I had to read it! I absolutely love the cover and the blurb drew me in. I cannot even believe it took me this long to get to it because I loved it!
This book follows Mackenzie through the murders of two of her friends and her trying to clear her name and the names of her other friends who were also there the night of the murders. I really liked Mackenzie in this book – she was sassy and fun, but she also took care of those who needed it after the events that happened and she was just an easy character to like. She was also naive at times because she didn’t want to believe the obvious, but I could also understand why.
The only other character who I liked was Blake. It took a while for the reader to really get to know him because he is a pretty closed of character, but I loved watching him open up to Mackenzie and the way that his true feelings started to show.
I think what I enjoyed most about this book was the way that all the motives started to show themselves after the deaths. At the beginning, none of our characters had a motive to kill the other two… but things started to slowly unfold as the story went on and it seemed like any one of them could have done it. I did have a gut feeling from the very beginning about who committed the murders and it turned out that I was right – but I had no idea what the motive was, so I was hooked because I just had to know.
Despite the fact that I knew who had killed them, I was not expecting the ending to go down the way that it did!! It left me completely gobsmacked and I would definitely not be opposed to a second book! I loved listening to the motive behind why the character did what they did and to see just how twisted they were in their thinking.
All in all, I absolutely loved this book and the ending has left me in complete shock! I would absolutely love to see a second book, but I also like the way that it was left because it leaves the future to the readers’ imaginations. I gave this book 5/5 stars.
