They Said It Was An Accident…
Sawyer Dodd is a star athlete, a straight-A student, and the envy of every other girl who wants to date Kevin Anderson. When Kevin dies in a tragic car crash, Sawyer is stunned. Then she opens her locker to find a note:
Someone saw what he did to her. Someone knows that Sawyer and Kevin weren’t the perfect couple they seemed to be. And that someone—a killer—is now shadowing Sawyer’s every move…
This book was so much better than I had anticipated! I really thought that it would kind of be all gooey and mushy. That we would get to see Sawyer fall head over heels in love OR we would see her fall into an abyss of depression from the loss of her boyfriend. We saw little glimpses of both of these things but really, the premise is that someone is setting Sawyer up. She is now being questioned by the police and people who have wronged her are disappearing every day. She starts to wander if maybe she is losing her mind and missing small pieces of her life, that maybe she could be the one harming all of these people.
I enjoyed the character of Sawyer. Even though she basically had been bullied by Kevin, she still has a strong will and will not let it get her down. She tries to hide what had happened between them and really thought that she had done a good job at it until she finds the note in her locker. Your Welcome! That is really creepy and when I had actually read that part in the book, I had shivers up my spine. I ran to may daughter and had to explain what the book was about. She agreed with me that this was a GREAT storyline!!! Very intriguing!
The ending had me really shocked!!! I never suspected, not once! I really had thought it was someone else. This just goes to show that Ms. Jayne did a fantastic job with the characters and pacing. The “bad guy” was very well hidden that I am not sure if anyone would suspect this person?
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and thought it made a fantastic read. I will be on the lookout for more to come from Ms. Jayne. Please go HERE to read a guest post written by the author which she tells a story of her personal inspiration for this book!
