ARC Review: False Step by Victoria Helen Stone *Stephanie’s Review*


I’m a sucker for a good suspenseful story. False Step by Victoria Helen Stone seemed to fit the bill so I gave it a chance.

The biggest stumbling block that I had with False Step is that I didn’t particularly like and/or care about any of the characters. They could have easily been swapped out for anyone else and it wouldn’t have made much of a difference for me. In fact, I pretty much didn’t care for Veronica at all. She was pretty selfish.

What I didn’t like about the characters Stone made up for in writing and pacing. I honestly had a hard time putting this one down. False Step opened with a rescue of a missing boy and rode that momentum throughout. It never got boring and I was always needing to know what was going to happen next. Plot definitely drove this storyline for me.

I never once suspected who the villain behind it all was. That’s always a plus in my book. It definitely shows that we mostly see people either how we’re told to see them or how we want and/or need to see them.

False Step by Victoria Helen Stone was a quick read and I’ll definitely pick Stone up again.
