Journal Entry 1 by PinnieB from Stourbridge, West Midlands United Kingdom on Sunday, November 10, 2019
This book got off to a promising start but it soon became too wordy with excessive descriptions of what people looked like, what they were wearing, what they were eating / drinking etc that didn’t add anything to the plot.

The writing is quite good although the story jumps backwards and forwards in time, characters and location which I found confusing.

At about two thirds into the book I wanted it all to hurry up and finish to reveal the ending as the author leads you to believe there will be a shock ‘reveal’, but it was just very odd and disappointing.

When I purchased this book I thought it was a thriller/mystery but I would describe more as a plodding family drama.

Left on the book swap shelf.
