Book Review | Follow Me Down by Sherri Smith

I'm not a person who can pick up a book whenever and just read. I have to be in the mood. But lately I have really started to enjoy reading again and I was very kindly sent Follow Me Down by Sherri Smith to read and review.

Within the first few pages, I was soon gripped by the storyline.

Now a pharmacist in Chicago, Mia has built up a new life for herself miles from her hometown Waynota, North Dakota. But when her twin brother, Lucas who is a popular, well-loved high school teacher disappears on the same day as the body of one of his students is found, everybody is highly suspicious and fast to point their fingers; including the police who soon call Lucas "a person of interest". 

The story follows Mia's journey of going back to her hometown, the place where she never intended to return to and the struggle of trying to understand all of the rumours about her brother's disappearance and a so-called affair with the student whose body was found. All whilst thinking If he's innocent, then why did he run? 

There's lots of twists and turns (and suspects) thrown into this physiological thriller and Mia doesn't know who she can really trust. The police think she's lying for Lucas and she knows she going to have to face the past which she thought she had left behind and it also gives you an insight of both Mia's and Lucas' not so great past and growing up with their single, alcoholic mother, Mimi.

I don't really want to write more about the book because I'm worried I may spoil it but if you are a fan of Gone Girl, The Girl On The Train or even Riverdale, then I think you will really enjoy this book. You can pick it up on Amazon here
