Although I liked some aspects of the fables and fairy tales
on 30 July 2017
I struggled with this story and found it disappointing after being gripped by The Killing Place.
In fact the tension between Rizzoli & Isles in this story irritated me, considering how their friendship had been affected and threatened in the last book.
Although I liked some aspects of the fables and fairy tales, I found the link between the crimes of decades ago to the current story a little implausible. For me, the conclusion was a little too compact and not worth all the waiting for, and another hostage/captive situation where we knew one of our heroines would absolutely survive, was repetitious and in my opinion tedious.
That said I will most definitely be reading the next instalment as this review reflects my opinion and not the overall brilliance of TG.
