Just finished reading this book.
I was very disappointed. I thought the plot was good, but the ending wasn't.
Sorry I wasted my time. There are so many better books to read.

Lots of twists, but I hoped this was going to be a little darker than it was...

This book was ok. It took a while to get into it, and to be honest, I really didn't think it was worth the time spent reading it. There were plenty of suspects who could have been the murderer, but in the end, there was no resolution to the crime. I just didn't like it.
