4 out of 5 stars
Grace thinks she has found the perfect man in Jack Angel. When he starts dancing with her 17-year-old sister Millie at the park, she is touched beyond measure. Millie has Downs Syndrome and really has Grace’s heart. Jack sweeps Grace off her feet, even promising that when Millie turns 18, she can leave the school she lives in, and move in with them. He plans a dream home for Grace. They are quickly married and that’s when the awful truth comes out. Jack doesn’t really want Grace, he has some terrible plans for Millie. This seemingly perfect man is hiding an evil sadistic side. As Grace lives locked away, having to put on a show for the few people that Jack allows her to see, she is counting the days until Millie arrives and trying to find a way to save them both.
I can’t really say too much more. You have to read it and not be spoiled but boy oh boy, I could not stop reading. Jack is one of the most awful characters I have read in a long time. Not a redeeming bone in his body! You keep praying for him to slip some how. You keep praying for a friend to realize all is not what it seemed behind closed doors. You keep praying Grace finally finds a way. You will love Millie and how she knows right away that something has to be done. One of those really good thrillers that will keep you biting your nails until the very end.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
