This book is set in a near future where instead of being sent to prison, if you commit a crime you end up being imprisoned in the home of the person you committed the crime against. So begins this story baker, Hannah Casey, who has twenty-eight year old Jem imprisoned in her home for the murder of Hannah's husband.
This is a fantastic book. I read a lot of crime thrillers and psychological thrillers and it takes a lot to impress or surprise me but this book did both. The main reason for this is because I was constantly unsure of what direction the book was going in. Was this a story of Hannah falling in love with her husband's killer? Was it a story of her finding out the real culprit in her husband's murder? Was her husband as innocent as she believed him to be?
Throughout the book, I was taken on a twisted journey constantly wondering what was going to happen next and how the book would end. So often with this type of book you can see the twists coming but for this one, I really couldn't. It was captivating!
