"Paige really ratchets up the tension. You'll be in a reading frenzy by the end!" (Lisa Jewell)
I don't often give bad reviews but the I had really high hopes for this book. The premise of a mystery stemming from someone's dying words made my mind up to give Paige Toon a go. I can't comment on her other books but for me this one just meandered. I kept expecting some big reveal that never came. Even the possibility of an earth shattering confrontation was avoided at the end, a real shame because this book needed some grit. If you're after a 'nice' easy story this is for you. If you want something with a bit of intrigue and interest, avoid.
Stuggling to get through this one - too sickly sweet for me I have to confess. Maybe good for an easy holiday read.
