I first thought it was a romance story but I found it a detective story too. It is one of the stories I cannot stop reading until the end.

It is very sad when you find out that you are someone's second best. Derek, Rachel, and Malgosia herself. I was glad it turned out that the "second bests" became just "the Bests!"

I read this book with an excitement. It make me curious about how the story will be going to go in the end. Even though I couldn't understand the main character's feeling or ending of this book, this book fasinated me. There was no dragging or slow tempo. The accidents happened in the first of the story and the hero traces it one by one. The story didn't have any unnecessary part. I liked it!

This book is WOW! I didn't expect from this book to be so good. When I have read the first chapter I thought that it was a romance novel, after I discovered that was actually a thriller and an adventure novel with detectives and police. The emotions of the narrator are just so powerful and make you think about that sad feelings. I recommend this book.
