Review and Thoughts:
I have to admit, this one was a bit of a let down for me. Sadly.
The first chapter really captured my attention, had me wondering what was next. After that, I found the characters lacked development, the plot started to lose its threads, and the twist became less and less of a twist. I really wanted to like this one more.
One major flaw for me was the lack of character/relationship development. Mark and Erin are supposedly “madly in love”. Yet I never really felt that. Which in the end, once you understand what Mark has done, its actually not that surprising at all. I would have liked more detail on their relationship, which would have made me feel a lot more for them once the twist is revealed.
I will say I did enjoy the descriptive writing, and the “what ifs” of this book. You could make several conclusions based on the events that take place. Some people find this annoying when reading a book, I find it intriguing!
