4 stars (actually it's closer to 4.5 stars)
What an amazingly addictive read this turned out to be! I really enjoyed each page of this. The main characters were interesting and as the story unfolded, I was glued to it. The ending was slightly less dramatic than I was expecting but that hasn't changed or lowered my thoughts on this. There was no major twist but it was still an excellent, time worthy, read. I was captured at the beginning and not released until the very end.
The three main characters are Dom, Stacey and Tamara. God, Tamara is a piece of work. At the beginning we are made well aware of the type of person she is so there was no surprises that she stayed that same person throughout the story. The question was just simply, 'Why?' What happened that made her this way. Well time will tell and in the end it does. Right at the start, Tamara murders a man named Dylan but has set it up to look like a suicide. But she doesn't want to stop there.
Dom is the father in the story. I'm not exactly sure how I feel about him. There is something nothing me about him and it probably had to do with how easily he allowed Tamara into his life and the lives of his Children, Ivy and Arthur.
Stacey would do anything for her family whom she lives dearly, but does she? What Tamara manages to do to Stacey would be a nightmare for anybody, especially for any mother.
As the story unfolds, pieces fall into place. I hadn't expected the ending to turn out how it did, but it fitted well with the story. This was a fast read for me and I definitely recommend it.
