The Girl With No Past by Kathryn Croft

Rating: 2 stars

Psychological thriller my ass! Nothing about it was remotely thrilling. It took me almost a week to get through this because the pacing was so slow. Leah was being harassed and stalked by an unknown person over a devastating event from her past. The stalker was messing with her head but not to the degree that I’d label this book as psychological.

This alternated between scenes in the past and the present. It wasn’t until the end that the devastating event was revealed. What happened was horrible, but after all of the build up, I was expecting something more. Leah’s role in it was disappointing. She was a victim of circumstance rather than mastermind of evil.

The stalker was likely to be one of two people, and the stalker definitely turned out to be one of those people. There were some red herrings along the way, but none of them were truly believable. The characters could have used some work. It was hard to care about any of them because they were all one dimensional.

In the very last chapter, there was a twist I hadn’t seen coming. It really was malicious, and it was completely unexpected coming from that character. It did help tie together some minor things that hadn’t made sense earlier in the book.

I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
