Sixteen-year-old con artist Jo Chastain is about to take on the biggest heist of her life: impersonating a missing girl. Life on the streets of Boston these past few years hasn’t been easy, and Jo is hoping to cash in on a little safety, a little security. She finds her opportunity in the Lovecrafts, a wealthy family with ties to the unsolved disappearance of Vivienne Weir, who vanished when she was nine.
When Jo takes on Vivi’s identity and stages the girl’s miraculous return, the Lovecrafts welcome her back with open arms. They give her everything she could want: love, money, and proximity to their intoxicating and unpredictable daughter, Temple. But nothing is as it seems in the Lovecraft household—and some secrets refuse to stay buried. As hidden crimes come to the surface, and lines of deception begin to blur, Jo must choose to either hold onto an illusion of safety, or escape the danger around her before it’s too late.

Review:

I thought I was prepared for this book but I wasn’t. This was dark in the best way possible. It was such a creepy, stay with me long after I finished the book, had me thinking about it for days kind of good dark story.

The overall tone of the story is what has really stayed with me. It had a wonderfully complex mystery that kept me guessing until the very end. The writing style was brilliant and fluid. I believe that gave the characters a bit of a flawed reality to them. It felt like I would meet characters like this in real life, or at least stalk them from afar because I was that invested in their story. 😉

Reviewing a book without giving anything away is HARD. I just want everyone to know that everything about this story was so well done. The pacing was excellent, the characters were rich and well developed, the plot itself was marvelous. My only complaint is that I read it too quickly and it was over before I realized it. Even the setting was full of detail and immersive! I felt as if I was actually walking through Boston while the story moved along. But remember  – this is not a walking tour of Boston book, dark things hid around every corner. Dark and seedy things that nobody would want to witness in the light of day.

I highly recommend everyone read this book! It is deliciously dark and disturbing, but Savage will make you beg for more. She’s evil like that. Please, add this to your TBR now.

About Kim:

KimI was born and raised in Massachusetts, on the South Shore, which sounds beachy, even luxe. Think Winnebagos and chicken coops. My three brothers, 16, 10, and 8 years older, were teens by the time I became a person. Happiest around adults, who often forgot I was there, I spent days eavesdropping on gossipy moms in lawn chairs and nights listening under the table during tipsy Scrabble parties.

My dad read to me nightly. Eventually and early, I read to myself, everywhere. On top of an enormous freezer chest stuffed with meat. On drives until I grew nauseous. In bed until my eyes gave out. I read anything I could get my hands on. V.C. Andrews and Dickens. Black Beauty and the Bible. The Economist. Madeline L’Engle and Margaret Atwood. National Geographic.

I got a bachelor’s degree in English from Stonehill College and a Master’s in Journalism from Northeastern University. For a while, I worked as a business journalist. Instead of waiting for the Federal Reserve to release the Beige Book, I pitched story ideas along the lines of “Stigmatized Properties: When Murder Kills Property Values”. You see where things were headed.

Today, I live with my family northwest of Boston in a town a lot like Shiverton, near the real Fells reservation of AFTER THE WOODS. Born with dysgeographica—I’m directionally challenged—the fear of getting lost in that lovely, dark forest lives close to my skin.
