One desperate journey for the truth

Returning to Willows Lake eleven years after her mother’s tragic death, Sloane Baker knows she will finally get the answers she needs! She always suspected that there was something more sinister at the heart of the accident that claimed her mother’s life, but a cryptic note could be the key to her past…

Two lives changed forever

The small town has always seemed safe to Brianna Taylor – until a mysterious new girl arrives who looks exactly like Bri! Now everything Bri knew has been thrown into question and Sloane’s arrival has changed the world of Willows Lake forever.

Strange things are happening in Willows Lake. But when they turn deadly, Bri and Sloane must find a way to save each other or risk losing everything they hold dear…


I am giving this one a 3.5 for my rating! I enjoyed it but I think there was way too much lead up and not more about the story it’s self. I wanted more of Sloane and Bri and what they were and where they came form . Maybe in book 2 I will get it. I still felt there was too much lead up and a rushed end.

But I did enjoy the story its self, the whole mystery of who Bri and Sloane were and why they looked so much alike. I loved the supporting character and cant wait to read more about them I hope in book two. it was fast paced for me and I read it pretty quick, once the selects started to unravel things got good!!

I am very exited for book 2, as you can see, I need more…more of the history of the two girls. I don’t want to say to much because there is a lot of things you don’t want to know till you do read!

This one is a  Paranormal YA read!!!
