APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Set in California wine country, this psychological thriller tracks three generations linked to a ramshackle—and very gothic—family castle. Caroline Overington’s novel bristles with buried secrets that start to wriggle out when a bobcat desecrates a local graveyard. You may think you know whodunit and maybe even why, but Overington saves her hand for the book's final third, when she ratchets up the tension by revealing unexpected connections and the surprising motivations of characters you thought you had pegged.
Not so sure on this one.
The 'sample' got me intrigued so I bough the book. It went on to swap character p.o.v which annoys me and just went on and on- so many details about what people are wearing- why!! Got quite boring but I kept going- didn't like the ending at all! Not her best work that's for sure!
Not worth your time
Some books make you feel disgusted for reading it. This book falls in this category. Not only does it make you regret for wasting your time but you will also wonder why you wasted your time when the author is so predictable. After the first book, you know exactly who the murderer was going to be. This book disappoints you in ways you will never imagine.
A little disappointing
Not as good as Overington's previous books. Slow first half, cliched characters and weird ending.
