Jessa Whitworth knew she didn’t belong in her ex-boyfriend Caleb’s room. But she couldn’t deny that she was everywhere—in his photos, his neatly folded T-shirts, even the butterfly necklace in his jeans pocket…the one she gave him for safe keeping on that day.
His mother asked her to pack up his things—even though she blames Jessa for his accident. How could she say no? And maybe, just maybe, it will help her work through the guilt she feels about their final moments together.
But as Jessa begins to box up the pieces of Caleb’s life, they trigger memories that make Jessa realize their past relationship may not be exactly as she remembered. And she starts to question whether she really knew Caleb at all.
Each fragment of his life reveals a new clue that propels Jessa to search for the truth about Caleb’s accident. What really happened on the storm-swept bridge?

Review:

THIS BOOK. Holy crow this book was a brilliant thriller with so many twists and turns.

From the first page I was hooked. It does start with Jessa walking into her ex-boyfriend’s bedroom but she’s bombarded with old memories of their relationship. Caleb had so many things that he had to remind him of Jessa. He was just too young to die the way he did: his car was swept away in a flash flood. But the fact that his mom blames Jessa is just messed up. I never liked Caleb’s mom, but I don’t think I was ever supposed to like her. She came across as a gold-digger and was sad when her cash cow (Caleb and his trust fund) were gone. Surprise surprise, the nasty came out when she was forced to face reality like bills, rent, mortgage, groceries, and more.

I liked Jessa and Caleb, though I was not in love with their characters. I didn’t like the person Caleb became over the course of the story and wished he had opened up to someone about what was going on. The way he took it all out on Jessa was a bad move. Jessa’s character wasn’t a saint but at least she was realistic with her feelings.

The plot was very well developed. It was full of nasty twists and sharp turns I never saw coming. At first I was super confused with the timeline as it was not a linear timeline. The memories Jessa goes through is not in any specific order, they are brought on by items in Caleb’s room. That means when she has a flashback, we are thrust into either their first month of dating or seventh month of dating. It felt like it was all over the place but I promise it comes together in the end. It comes together in a pretty package with a nice bow.

I am not going to give too much away in this review other than to say I was freaking hooked. This did not end the way I expected it to and it all worked. Miranda did a marvelous job of writing this psychological thriller. I cannot wait to read what she writs next.
