After reading Pintip Dunn’s Forget Tomorrow, I told myself to be on the lookout for her next novels because I liked her way of writing. And again, I wasn’t disappointed.

This time Dunn offered us a contemporary/mystery that will leave us all hanging because it’s really gripping. It’s about a girl named CeCe and the mysteries surrounding her mother’s death.

I loved how every character seemed open yet shady. It was really hard to pinpoint who the antagonist was and it was fun seeing it unfold as the story progressed.

CeCe’s character was easy to follow. Her feelings and emotions was a bit overflowing so it was easy to catch as well. Her character development was one to read. Same goes for Sam. He’s a bit sketchy at first and it was a bit hard to trust. CeCe and Sam’s chemistry wasn’t hard to pick up but their romance was slow-burned so it was more than okay.

Overall, it’s a pretty enjoyable read. Perfect for readers looking for a mix of mystery, romance and drama.
