Why else would her mother have run off and abandoned her as a child?
But when her mother unexpectedly returns home with two young daughters in tow, all of the stories Ivy wove to protect her heart start to unravel. The very people she once trusted now speak in lies. And all of Ivy’s ambition and determination cannot defend her against the secrets of the Milbourn past….
I have to admit, I wasn’t sure about this one when I requested it on Netgalley, but I thought I’d give it a shot. Turns out I probably should have gone with my first instinct.
I didn’t hate it, but it was just such a vanilla book (I hate using that phase because I LOVE vanilla, but it works, so I’m going with it!). It just felt like nothing happened, I couldn’t connect with the characters and then it just ended.
