Jill Elizabeth’s first review of the year

In the third and final installment in this trilogy, Webb ties everything up nicely (if a bit quickly, to my mind) and Rowan finally gets her answers - some of which come at quite an emotional price. The writing and pacing in this final book were once again tight and kept me on the edge of my seat. I read this one in literally one sitting of about 3.5 hours - I couldn't stop until I, like Rowan, had my answers...

The Postscript Murders by Elly Griffiths

Jill Elizabeth’s last review of the year

it was amazing
