The Blurb from Amazon:

Twenty years ago, Melanie Stokes was abandoned in a Boston hospital, then adopted by a wealthy young couple. Gifted with loving parents, a doting brother, and an indulgent uncle, Melanie has always considered herself lucky. Until the first cryptic, threatening note arrives: “You Get What You Deserve.”

Melanie has no memory of her life before the adoption. Now someone wants her to remember it all—even the darkest nightmare the Stokes family ever faced: the murder of their first daughter. As Melanie pursues every lead and chases every shadow in search of her real identity, two seemingly unrelated events from her past will come together in a dangerous explosion of truth.

It's been a long time since I've read a mystery. Too long actually. But this book is exactly what a mystery should be! As I was reading the first half of the book, I was thinking that it was going to be a 3 star rating, but then it just got better and better! I absolutely could not figure out how it was going to end! Every time I thought I had solved it, the author would twist me around again! Delicious! I enjoyed this one so much.

The characters were completely believable, and the story was written perfectly in my opinion. I was actually afraid I was going to be let down at the ending, but boy was I wrong. If you like suspenseful mysteries, you will love this book. Check it out!
