Review: Take The Fall by Emily Hainsworth
WHO KILLED GRETCHEN MEYER?
Fear grips the residents of Hidden Falls the night Sonia Feldman and her best friend, Gretchen Meyer, are attacked in the woods. Sonia was lucky to escape with her life, but Gretchen’s body is discovered at the bottom of a waterfall. Beautiful, popular, and seemingly untouchable, Gretchen can’t be gone. Even as Sonia struggles with guilt and confusion over having survived, the whole town is looking to her for information…could she have seen something that will lead the police to the killer?
At the top of the list of suspects is Gretchen’s ex-boyfriend—and Sonia’s longtime enemy—Marcus Perez. So when Marcus comes to Sonia for help clearing his name, she agrees, hoping to find evidence the police need to prove he’s the killer. But as Gretchen’s many secrets emerge and the suspects add up, Sonia feels less sure of Marcus’s involvement, and more afraid for herself. Could Marcus, the artist, the screwup, the boy she might be falling for have attacked her? Killed her best friend? And if it wasn’t him in the woods that night…who could it have been?
*Book Received in Exchange for Honest Opinion/Review*
Holy epic mystery thriller! I could not put this book down and trust me, I had no idea who the killer was up until the final reveal. I feel like I need to re-read it now that I know who the killer is to find hints to see if I could piece it together. The plot was good, so good and I was lost in the characters, lost in the story, and lost in my mind. The characters are well developed and each chapter was like peeling a layer away to see who the character truly was underneath it all.
The plot is captivating, wondering who killed Gretchen but also wondering how the story is going to end. I was kept in a state of constant questioning. This book will keep you on your toes and wondering up until the last 2 chapters. When the killer is finally revealed, I think my jaw hit the floor, what? No…everything I believed in was a lie! Why cruel world do you betray me… Just take my word for it, if you are looking for mystery…look no further, Take the Fall is an absolute must read.
