3.5⭐️
Wow! What dynamite first chapter! Thought I’d be in for the thriller of the summer. If only...

This book reminded me of the old slasher movies where you’re screaming at the characters not to go into the basement. I found myself screaming at Erin and Mike, Not to open the duffel bag!

But of course characters aren’t going to listen to me. At seemingly every turn they’d be doing something that would just make me cringe and screaming, “stop!!” 😱

“ Have you ever wondered how long it takes to dig a grave?”

The book held my interest, even though I was almost hoarse from yelling at the characters. For the most part I enjoyed the ride. The ending...well, I was hoping for a little more clarity than what was given.

You do need to put your believability issues aside to stay with the plot. I’d like to say I walked loving it... but I can’t. Though I will say I liked it and would recommend this one for an easy vacation read!

A Traveling Friend read!🌸

Michelle I have been so hesitant to start this one. Great review, Kaceey! :)


(Bern) Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas Great review! Glad you enjoyed it overall. I haven't rushed to read it bc I fear I'll be underwhelmed by it. It's in my "someday" pile. Which works out since I'm on hold for it at the library and looks like my turn will come around next year, lol!
