Initial Impressions 2/7/20: 3.5 stars
While I was engaged the whole time, I feel like this book took until halfway through to even get good. I was interested in the characters and what might happen, but there weren’t really any big points of intrigue until I was already about 45% of the way in when some of the q u e s t i o n s start to pop up.

Once we started to get some intrigue, I felt like a few things were a little predictable. Some of it was really good because while I thought it was predictable, my *actual* guesses were still not quite correct.... but they did follow a pretty well-worn path that’s used a lot in mystery/thrillers. I think it just didn’t quite pack the punch I was looking for to really surprise me.
