The culmination of the story was interesting and nicely buttoned things up but it was also but very far-fetched.
I was entertained by this book but didn't feel the storyline lived up to its potential.
I am, however, very grateful to have received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for this honest review!

This story grabbed me from the beginning. I loved the ease of the characters conversations. Catherine McKenzie left me guessing what was coming next and how it was all going to play out. I would've liked a little more at the end about how everyone ended up.

Technical issue: this may be fixed in the final copy, however, due to the fact that chapters switch from past to present frequently, I would've liked them marked a little clearer; in this version, it ...more
