Abi thinks she see's Lucy around and someone is playing tricks on Abi Who updated her dead sisters Facebook page? And who stole the letters? Could it indeed be Lucy? 

I don't know what I thought about this book. I had a lot going on while I was reading this book and this is one of those books where you really need to concentrate. It's a mystery/thriller. It took me a while to read because I had zero tiem to read. However, I eventually got to 60% through the book and actually couldn't put it down. It has a couple of twists... One really big twist which I DID see coming but it was still good. IT kept me in suspense towards the end of the book - which is always a good thing. I rated this book 3 out of 5 stars. 
Thats one book from my August TBR pile read! 

Have you read any Thrillers or Mystery books lately?
