Loved the enthralling concept.
on 29 December 2013
This novel begins in a familiar beauty spot so you expect something peaceful, but the opening scenes are gripping with some horrifyingly realistic detail.
The main character draws you in, she's convincing but deeply annoying, just like a friend you'd love to help if only she would let you. As the story line progresses you meet her contacts and learn more about why her life is such a mess. I was fascinated by the events; I read the book pretty much at a sitting.
The language is rich and expressive, especially the dialogue. The only reason I didn't give it more stars is I wanted the character to develop more towards the end, I felt she had more to give. I'd recomment this book for a spooky, addictive weekend read.
