The following review originally appeared on Book End Babes, a website devoted to a love of reading and to learning about new authors.
I love suspense mysteries. When this book came up on my list of recommendations on Amazon, I read the sample and was immediately intrigued. I love a page turner that keeps me wanting more. I thought this book was going to give it to me.
It did in a sense. I didn’t want to keep turning the pages; it was slow moving. It was easy for me to walk away from this and then come back. All of the twists and turns were still there, but I didn’t feel they flowed quickly enough. I find this happens a lot to me when I read novels written by UK authors.
While I was disappointed in the pace, I loved the story. It was fun to read how all of the characters end up connected to Emma, the heroine. You watch her struggle with the disappearance of her fiancee and see how the people around her play into her search to clear his name. I didn’t see a lot of it coming. That’s what makes this book worth reading.
And the end, well I didn’t see it coming.
If you love thrillers and don’t mind the pace, this book is definitely worth the read.
