Hmm a little too romancey lovey for my taste.. I kept reading, wanting to know what happened. I knew something but didn’t think it was the twist. I didn’t think it would be as straightforward as it was. But what I thought was fairly obvious was actually supposed to be the twist. I was pretty disapointed by the ending. Too sappy tied up on one part and only one small part which was more real life, the sad outcome for one of the characters. It wasn’t a bad book, and the whole time I did wonder if he did it or didn’t, and if that guy was in my town would I believe him or not, and thought back to the two teachers in my school when I was younger who were convicted of molesting kids.. I just feel like she had something that could have been something more, but she missed the mark on it. Still a good read though.
