I was a little disappointed with this book. I had high hopes because of other books I’ve read by this author. Sadly this one did not deliver for me. The build up started off good. I was intrigued but after reading for awhile, the thrill factor was gone. I started to feel like a lot of this could have been solved if people would have just talked to each other. Shrug. The book did have some good moments. There are definitely secrets and lies, one really good one but it mostly fell flat. This one wasn’t for me but anyone that is a fan, I encourage you to read it and form your own opinion. I will continue to read books by this author and look forward to the next. I give this 3 stars.
