When Abby’s doctor tells her she’s two months pregnant she doesn’t believe him. She can’t be – she hasn’t had sex for over a year. But to her astonishment and dismay, multiple tests confirm it’s true. Desperately searching for an explanation, Abby recalls New Year’s Day – the terrible hangover, the hole in her memory where the night before should have been and the inexplicable sense of unease – and realises that this baby must have been conceived at her best friend Danny’s NYE party. Horrified that someone would have taken advantage of her intoxicated state, Abby enlists the help of Danny to find out which of the party guests assaulted her. But, when she starts to receive anonymous messages, it seems that while she has been looking into the father of her baby, someone has been watching her…
I was completely hooked on this right from the beginning. The story was so addictive and intriguing. I flew through it and I had so many theories about what was going on. It was a fast paced story and it didn’t lag or get repetitive. I could feel Abby’s frustration as she kept running into dead ends. It says on the cover that the story contained the biggest twist of 2020. I have to disagree with that. I personally felt no connection to the twist. I don’t want to give away any spoilers but it felt like the investigations Abby had made were completely pointless given the ending. Overall, the story was great but the twist at the end wasn’t for me.
