Dead Letters

BMDP1696After reading several non-fiction books, I decided it was time for a change of pace with a thriller.

Throughout the book I was captured in the journey as Ava went through the clues to discover the truth about her sister Zelda. As she is doing this, she is forced back into a life that she tried to escape from, and goes on a sort of self-discovery journey of her own. Ava’s past is revealed as the clues are discovered, so that the reader learns what she decided to run away from. In some aspects, it seems that she channels her twin and picks up on some of her habits so that people mistake her for which twin she really is.

Caite Dolan-Leach had me from the first page, capturing my attention and keeping me guessing at what would be revealed when I finally reached the end. Throughout the story I felt as though the verdict could go either way, leaving me guessing until it was finally revealed.

One aspect that I really enjoyed about this book, was how I was left wondering even after I turned the last page. Caite Dolan-Leach wrapped up many┬ápieces of the story, some of them in surprising ways, but left some parts to the imagination of the reader. As I sit here writing this review I’m wondering about the possibilities of what the characters are up to after the last page.
