Pretty Waste by Melissa Simonson
Psychological Thriller & Suspense
Published: November 2, 2014
neither caring nor empathetic, but he cleans up well and is an accomplished actor (not unlike his nemesis, Madam Miranda Crosland). Can he work out the kinks in this twisted web of secrets, cons, and lies? Without a doubt. The real question might be can he be bothered to do so. Listening to tragic backstories isn't high on his list of entertainment, but then watching master plans explode in faces is a pastime Dr. Carrington enjoys.
Choosing a side is difficult when most everyone involved is morally bankrupt. It's going to be a wicked winter.
First let me start off by saying that this cover is GORGEOUS! Even if the blurb didn’t catch me (which it did) I would read it based on the cover! Beautiful, beautiful! In terms of the story, it is definitely dark and complex- something that I wasn’t necessarily expecting BUT loved it because of this. Readers will catch a glimpse of the darker side of human existence and take in the viciousness of the characters. Told in differing perspectives, readers won’t be able to help the fact that they become easily sucked into this twisted tale. I know I was sucked into the book and found myself gripping the pages in constant need to know what was going to happen. Utterly disturbing and beautifully written, this is a story that you really need to dig your nails into. Grab it!!!
