Sarah is excited when an old friend moves back to town, but when she gets a Facebook friend request asking her which profile is the real Sarah, she is a little disturbed, and when she clicks on the other profile-the one with the same name- she is shocked at what she sees. Copycat by Alex Lake is a thrill ride from start to finish.
The other Sarah has pictures that even the real Sarah doesn’t have on her Facebook page, so how did she get them? How did she get photos from inside Sarah’s house? And who in the hell is behind this? Is it some big joke, played by her husband, or is this a stalker? The craziness that follows her because of the stupid Facebook page is real, and dangerous.
Sarah’s life starts to crumble right before her eyes, somehow, her husband doesn’t believe that she isn’t the one behind the page, because there are clues that maybe it is Sarah after all, the scary self help books about suicide that show up at the door, and the phone calls to the kids school saying she’s going to be picking them up early, it all traces back to Sarah, but she swears she has nothing to do with it.
Honestly, this is one of the few books that I have not had any idea what or who was the culprit. The story left me flabbergasted, and I honestly was shocked when the twist was finally revealed. It was scary, it was relevant, and this is one of my favorite books of the year. Alex does an incredible job of making characters relatable, but also makes them hard to pin point, and I really like that. This is the second book I’ve read by Alex, and the second book that I have thoroughly loved, and been hooked through out the entire story. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars, it really got me in the mood for some more spooky thriller type stories this fall, thank you to Edelweiss for allowing me to read this book.
