So I have to admit to having Blink on my TBR pile for quite some time but I'm so glad that I finally picked it up. It really is an easy five stars from me, so what did I think...
If you are looking for a story that will keep you guessing than look no further, Blink pulled me in from the very first chapter. With a creeping amount of tension and suspense. I loved the way the story has two timelines one set in the present day and one three years earlier along with a chapters told from different perspectives. Now even though that may sound like a lot of information I never once got confused it just left me so very curious as to what happened to Evie.
Toni is having a tough time of it and is trying to hold things together for the sake of her little girl Evie. There were times when I wanted to reach in and intervene and talk some sense into her. For me this is a sign of a great story one that easily makes me invested in the characters lives even if they do make mistakes.
I read this book over an afternoon as I just couldn't put it down! K.L. Slater has written a very twisty story with surprises that had me constantly changing my mind about the story itself and the characters. There are some interesting and suspicious characters within this book which left me with plenty of suspects to choose from.
Blink moves at a brilliant pace and left me eagerly turning the pages to see what would happen next!
With thanks to Bookouture and Netgalley for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
