This was a juicy piece of mystery! I have to say that I was worried when I first started reading this – every noun had at least one adjective, which slowed the pacing and made the sentences feel bogged down and cumbersome, but soon enough, the author shed her excess and settled into a more comfortable groove which kept the book glued to my hand!
There’s plenty of twists and turns and red herrings in this one, and while it wasn’t completely unpredictable (except, perhaps, the very, very end), there was no way I could have stated my suspicions with much conviction. There was a lot going on, but it worked! I’d definitely read another book by this author. 5 stars!
