What She Gave Away by Catharine Riggs

An unusual thriller with a delightful amount of rage and revenge. This clever read is filled with twists and turns I did not see coming. Despite the many unlikeable characters, I loved this story. Crystal is manipulative and scheming, and even her horrible childhood does not make her sympathetic. But the plot sucked me in and demanded I read until the end, when all my questions were answered.
