Review: She was the Quiet One

Title: She Was The Quiet One

Author: Michele Campbell

Release Date: July 31st 2018

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads: For Rose Enright, enrolling in a prestigious New England boarding school is the opportunity of a lifetime. But for Rose’s vulnerable twin sister Bel, Odell Academy is a place of temptation and danger. When Bel falls in with a crowd of wild rich kids who pressure her into hazing Rose, the sisters’ relationship is shattered. Rose turns to her dorm mother, Sarah Donovan, for advice. But Bel turns to Sarah’s husband Heath, a charismatic and ambitious teacher. Is Heath trying to help Bel or take advantage of her? In a world of privilege, seduction, and manipulation, only one sister will live to tell the truth.

In a novel full of twists, turns, and dark secrets, Michele Campbell once again proves her skill at crafting intricately spun and completely compelling plots.

My Review: This was a super fast paced thriller that sucked me right in. I love books set in boarding schools and the addition of twins was fascinating. I enjoyed Campbell’s take on the boarding school setting and her handling of the fact that money does crazy things to people. Overall this was a really great thriller and I look forward to more book from this author.

*I received this book from St. Martin’s Press in exchange for an honest review*
