Goodreads Synopsis:

Sienna Scott grew up in the dark shadow of her mother’s paranoid delusions. Now, she’s returned home to confront her past and the unsolved murder that altered the course of her life.

In her mother’s shuttered house, an old fear that has haunted Sienna for years rears its ugly head —that it was she who had been the killer’s target that night. And now, with it, a new fear—that the killer not only intended to remedy his past mistake—he’s already begun. But are these fears any different from the ones that torment her mother?

As the walls close in, the line between truth and lie, reality and delusion disintegrate. Has Sienna’s worst nightmare come true? Or will she unmask a killer and finally prove she may be her mother’s look-alike, but she’s not her clone?

My Thoughts

This book was a roller coaster of a ride.

Sienna has a lot on her plate. After she is home for awhile, she begins to wonder if she should have just stayed away.  From calming her mom down during her episodes, to the van that slowly drives by the house, and the mysterious caller saying it was supposed to be her that died that night.  The murder case has been re-opened, and Sienna has every intention of solving it.  However, it seems that everyone close to the case either ends up dead or injured.

Although her mom is not all there most of the time, she has a very strong will to protect her only daughter from everyone. There is also the fact that her mom says she was pushed down the stairs in her own home.  Due to her mental state, nobody believes her, but they soon find out that they should have listened to her.

I figured out who the killer was pretty quickly, but then I had doubts all throughout the book.  Everyone is a suspect.  From the cute neighbor next door whom Sienna can’t seem to stay away from, to the step-brother who has run into financial trouble.  Even the step-brothers mom and ex-wife are suspects.  It seems they would have good reason to want Sienna gone.
