I really wanted this one to live up to my high expectations - I bought the hardback, after all! Unfortunately, while the writing was good, the story felt a bit slow paced, considering the gripping premise, and I never really connected with the characters. The conclusion, too, didn't come as a surprise. Still, this did not read like a debut novel, Barton can clearly write, and I will keep an eye on her future work.

Linda There is so much hype out there on this one. May not include this one on my list after all.

It wasn't bad, it just didn't live up to the hype for me. I'd recommend books by Jane Casey or Sophie McKenzie as good psychological thrillers and mysteries instead.


Book Club Mom Hi Malia - I agree - I just finished reading it today and I was a little disappointed with the plot, but it was a quick, easy read.

That's true, and I am still curious to read her newest book the Suspect:-)
