Synopsis from Goodreads:

This time, she has a choice. Leave the past behind, or face it head on.

Ryanne Patrick survived her summer in Dersten, but not without scars. When she is pulled back to the place that haunts her dreams, she is greeted by familiar faces, and unresolved feelings. She wants to run, but when the murder of a local rocks the town, she is forced to make a decision. The past and present collide, and the safety of her friends and family depends on her choice. As an ice storm cloaks the town, Ryanne knows one thing to be true.

Second chances can be deadly.

My Review:

O’Brien does it again with this original and creative novel that really makes you stop and think. Her smooth style and captivating voice will keep you hooked while you go on an original and haunting adventure with the main character. There is a feeling of darkness that underlies this novel, creating a chilling backdrop for this intriguing novel.

I thoroughly enjoyed the manner in which O’Brien continues to develop the characters that we’ve previously met. No one remains stagnant throughout the novel. At the same time, none of the characters undergo a magical shift in personality or beliefs. She also introduces us to some new characters that we get to know quite well. All of her characters are so unique yet realistic that you can’t help but want to get to know them better and to see what happens to them next.

This was a captivating read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others, although, this novel does follow quite closely after the first novel in the series so I would suggest reading the series in order.
