I was very disappointed with this book, and it was only sheer irritation that kept me going – I thought it MUST get better or reveal some amazing plot twist. I didn’t like the voice of Alice, she sounded needy and pathetic. I didn’t like the close, first person, present tense chapters with Alice as narrator, they just droned on with too much detail. None of the characters seemed believable, from the psycho mother in law to the stock sweary police officers. And all that terrible exposition in the final chapter. There must have been a more skilful way to tell the reader all that. Oh dear.

Cheryl Cagle I totally agree with your review and you were generous giving it two stars. I took this book out of my local library on the merit of the glowing reviews. It took me every bit of the two week loan time to read it. I found it to be a tortuous read for sure!
