Blood Echo by Melissa Simonson

Obsession is the dark side of love.
Iris Avery and her best friend, Estella, spend their time drowning in the empty excesses indulged in by their crowd of Upper East Side snobs until Estella’s sudden, shocking death.
Iris searches for answers in everything from philanthropy to hypnotherapy, feeling her existence is nothing more than a dark half-life full of guilt and repentance, but finds only endless questions. And several of them revolve around her when she discovers she’s connected to a high-profile murder.
Later, Iris begins hearing Estella’s voice whispering cryptic commentary in her head, and she can’t help but wonder if the hypnotherapy has been helping or hurting. Is her friend trying to warn her about something?
Bizarre packages pile up on her doorstep, and their meaning is obvious: Iris’s secrets aren’t so secret after all.
From Goodreads.

This was very different from what I expected from the blurb. I expected a thriller with a slight paranormal aspect and a grief stricken girl, nothing too much out of the ordinary. This is full of weird twists and turns and I never guessed the ending till very close to the end and before that it had me guessing like mad about who could be the murderer.
