MY REVIEW

I had great hopes of loving this book as it dealt with realistic issues of OCD set in suspenseful tones.

Regi had OCD. She lived with 3 other young girls as their house mate. A cloud of dark past surrounded her which kept me curious in the entire book. There were 3 cores in the book. A now with Regi, a then with her, and an Instagram influencer by the name Mrs Clean.

The main character was quite detached, living with her own problems. I liked how the author infused her life with scenes which gave an air of danger. The past was filled with pain, and it was wrenching. The influencer had her own set of trolls, and Regi was obsessed with her posts and stories.

The story perhaps tried too hard to keep the suspense going. I got disinterested in the mid half as the scenes felt repetitive. Not liking any of the characters added to the disenchantment.

This story would be a difficult one to format for any author, getting it transformed from ideas to words was commendable. But the pieces of jigsaw puzzle didn’t fit well when the final reveal came to be. There was an uneven feel to the book at the end.

I listened/read the book and the narrator was good. Overall, an okay story.

MY RATING

Rating: 3 out of 5.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.

  1. I thought the OCD thread would draw me in, but it seems there are too many pieces that don’t fit well. (Sorry for the mixed metaphor. I’m tired.)
