"Sienna Scott grew up in the dark shadow of her mother's paranoid delusions. Now, she's returned home to confront her past and the unsolved murder that altered the course of her life. In her mother's shuttered house, an old fear that has haunted Sienna for years rears its ugly head--that it was she who had been the killer's target that night. And now, with it, a new fear--that the killer not only intended to remedy his past mistake--he's already begun. But are these fears any different from the ones that torment her mother? As the walls close in, the line between truth and lie, reality and delusion disintegrate. Has Sienna's worst nightmare come true? Or will she unmask a killer and finally prove she may be her mother's look-alike, but she's not her clone?"--Provided by the publisher.

I enjoyed this psychological thriller, but have mixed feelings about the big reveal at the end. A good psychological thriller must walk a fine line between dropping hints and giving away the plot. This one avoids that line altogether by focusing on red herrings. There is one tiny clue very early in the narrative, so when the killer is revealed, it seems to come out of nowhere. Sure, it made for a surprising conclusion, but was a little disappointing. Also, Sienna's mother should clearly have been institutionalized, and it is quite unbelievable that a resentful stepson would ruin his life to care for a woman that hates him.

When you're not sure whether you are the target of a murderer, or maybe you're just paranoid......
