Mara Dyer once believed she could run from her past.She can't. She used to think her problems were all in her head. They aren't. She couldn't imagine that after everything she's been through, the boy she loves would still be keeping secrets. She's wrong. In this gripping sequel to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, the truth evolves and choices prove deadly. What will become of Mara Dyer next? - Goodreads


This book was such a mind bender! I literally don't know when to believe what Mara is saying and when to not, she doesn't even know herself! 

There is definitely a creepy vibe to the book but not so much that I couldn't sleep! Every now and then I enjoy myself a nice dark read, something that really plays with your head!

If you're looking for a psychological thriller I would recommend this series, I'm super excited to finish it off with the last book!!

Oh Mara.... I don't know either!
Girl... I think you may have gone mad!!

Mara Dyer wants to believe there's more to the lies she’s been told.
There is.

She doesn’t stop to think about where her quest for the truth might lead.
She should.

She never had to imagine how far she would go for vengeance.
She will now.

Loyalties are betrayed, guilt and innocence tangle, and fate and chance collide in this shocking conclusion to Mara Dyer’s story.

Retribution has arrived. - Goodreads

I'm not sure why so many people were so disappointed with this conclusion. I actually thought it was quite good! While it was a bit slower than the first two books, I still found it to have that creepy vibe and the story all came together for me in the end. 

My main issue with this book was that there were too many of the "before" parts and I wasn't a fan of that story line. 

Overall this is a great series! I listened to it via Audible and I thought it made great audiobooks!
