Meet Juliette. She's intelligent, driven, committed - and in love. Juliette loves Nate. She will follow him anywhere. She's even become a flight attendant for his airline, so she can keep a closer eye on him. They are meant to be. The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means nothing. Because Juliette has a plan to win him back. She is the perfect girlfriend. And she'll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants. True love hurts, but Juliette knows it's worth all the pain....

Story was excellent. Kept my interest all the way through. Could see this being made into a film. BUT detested Anna friels narration sounded like she was eating and swallowing all the way through. If the story had not been so enthralling I would have given up

It looks like a regular advent calendar. Until DC Becky Greene starts opening doors...and discovers a crime scene behind almost every one. The police hope it's a prank. Because if it isn't, a murderer has just surfaced - someone who's been killing for 20 years. But why now? And why has he sent it to this police station? As the country relaxes into festive cheer, Greene and DS Eddie Carmine must race against time to catch the killer. Because there are four doors left, and four murders will fill them....

When reading the synopsis I was worried it might be a bit too sci fi but bought it anyway, so glad I did. First few chapters you need to study so you know who is who, but such a gripping book. Excellent

Having read some bad reviews the premise of the book still drew me in. Glad I stuck with it. None of the main protagonists really deserve much sympathy. Just when you think a happy ending is coming.....
