Shudder - Book Review

I've adored Jennie Hansen's books since I was a teenager and was thrilled to read her newest, Shudder. It was different than her others, but still well-written and almost impossible to put down.
Back Cover Blurb:
Darcy and Clare grew up as best friends, sharing trials and triumphs from preschool through college graduation. Now they’re sharing an apartment in Boise, Idaho, where Clare just landed a great job and Darcy is pursuing a teaching certificate. There’s only one problem: Blaine, Clare’s boyfriend. His chauvinistic, know-it-all ways set Darcy’s teeth on edge. Darcy vows not to let Blaine ruin her lifelong friendship with Clare, but when Blaine insists on moving in, Darcy suddenly finds herself alone. The estranged friends forge ahead on seemingly separate paths. Engaged to Blaine, Clare becomes trapped in ugly family politics and vicious treatment from her fiancĂ©. Darcy finds a temporary home with Karlene, an accident victim seeking live-in help, but a twisted plot soon threatens their safety. Clare’s wedding briefly reunites her with Darcy, yet the friends have never been farther apart. And when Clare finds herself in mortal peril and finally calls on Darcy to help, it might be too late. What I liked: Fast-paced, intriguing story, and I really loved Darcy and Karlene.
What I didn't like: The abuse was awful. It honestly gave me nightmares.
Audience I would recommend to: I wouldn't want a teenager reading this, but I think it teaches many important lessons for adult readers.
Where to buy:
