Which Sarah Havenant is you?
When an old friend gets in touch, Sarah Havenant discovers that there are two Facebook profiles in her name. One is hers. The other, she has never seen.
But everything in it is accurate. Photos of her friends, her husband, her kids. Photos from the day before. Photos of her new kitchen. Photos taken inside her house.
And this is just the beginning. Because whoever has set up the second profile has been waiting for Sarah to find it. And now that she has, her life will no longer be her own…

This book was amazing and very well thought through. I was hooked after reading the sample and ended up buying the book. I had so many guesses the whole time, at one point I had a suspicion as to who was the antagonist but second guessed myself. I’d recommend this book to anyone!!! Amazing book! Amazing writer! I could read this over and over again!
Seemed intriguing at first but dragged on and I stopped caring about any of the characters half way through. Just wanted it to end.
