My Thoughts

I like a good mystery and this one has a strong foundation at the core and was well written.

The characters I found only the main character to be strong the others to me seemed weak and not as fleshed out as it could have been.

Don’t get me wrong the book was good as were the characters but it wasn’t what I was really expecting.

Sophie was a great character with a lot of depth. She was ever so slightly getting on my nerves at times but that can happen with any character.

The secret wasn’t what I was hoping for but the story itself was solid and I can see why many would like this especially if they have read the first book of the series.

Even though this can be read as a standalone it gets a bit confusing as you are missing some of the context.
