Great book but audiobook has bugs
Some of the audiobooks chapters are out of order and the last bit of part 2 is missing.
Beautifully told. It feels like you are in the book. Full of plots and twists that you never saw coming but at the same time makes perfect sense. Love, greed, and betrayal at it's finest!
A real "page turner". I read a hardcopy and LOVED it. A simply delightfully twisted story that will have you begging for time out if your busy day to sneak in a few more pages!! Excellent read!
