Good to a point
This is a good read. Characters are interesting, the story moves along. I did find the mother-daughter conflict a little draggy, as I did with the guilt factor with the husband. I think both those areas could’ve been done a little better. All in all it was a good read. I’m not sure if I’m going to finish out this series, I just found it not as suspenseful as it was built up to be. I liked it, however it just didn’t grip me as much as I had hoped. I give it three stars.
Where was the suspense?
Based on the cover, I was anticipating a big plot twist. Nothing really happens and then it ends really quickly.
Good book but not the thriller I was expecting
I thought the book was overall a good ready. I liked the characters which is what kept me going through the story. I wanted to find out what would happen with them. I liked how the author linked Ginas story with the case she was working and showed how more often than not you’ll come across a case that directly effects you and brings out personal issues. I wasn’t bored and I hoped that the characters would make it through. It definitely isn’t the heart stopping thriller that I was expecting and that many reviews claimed it would be which is why I gave it 3 stars. The ending wasn’t overly dramatic. There was no crazy twist. Not to say it was expected but it wasn’t a mind blowing outcome. Also I’d hoped to see find out more about DI Harte. I’m not sure if the author left off the way they did because it’s to come in another book but I can’t see myself buying another book just to find out.
