I received this book in exchange for an honest review
This is a short story about Carla who has taken on the expectation of excelling in sports after her sister Sasha has disappeared. She is struggling with this and the only way to keep it together is to carry on with her sports running, swimming. But one day she gets a note left for her saying she is in danger and not to attend the sports event. She thinks this is just a prank from her school friends but when her dog disappears and she gets another note that if she doesn’t stop the dog will get it.
Unfortunately she doesn’t take heed of this as she doesn’t want to disappoint her father, and next we find that she has been poisoned and the dog has been killed.
Rachel J Clay really keeps us in suspense to the end when we find out who is doing this to her, we have Carla’s attraction to Caleb even though she first thought her was leaving her the notes, then also Hamish kept coming on to her and she didn’t want to know him even though he was also warning her too.
This was a great story and hope to see a next book book with these characters.
