Ok. Very repetitive. Best part was the last few chapters.

Excellent read! Keeps you in suspense the whole way through!

I loved this book, is a griping story and i wouldn't have guest the end of this all story. If you are expecting violence, or drama like gone girl, this is not for you, but it's definitely a fun and intriguing book.

I loved this book! I went in with 0 expectations, and didn’t think I would be into it after the first couple chapters BUT it was juicy and kept me guessing until the very, very end. I felt it was one of the few mysteries that DID lay everything out from the beginning and fully answered every clue as it went, with the biggest mystery not revealed until the very end.

As mysteries go, this one was just ok, not thrilling and not shocking, just meh.

Another great pick of Reese Witherspoon's, this book was wild and thrilling the entire way through.

A modern murder mystery with a strong female protagonist and plenty of twists and turns. Though there were some elements that didn't quite add up or get fully explained, I still found it extremely difficult to put this book down. And of course, I couldn't even wager a guess as to what had truly happened until the very end! Totally a surprise ending!

This is the first book by this author I have read. I gave it 3 stars. It was good and I never thought about not finishing it but..... I thought the telling of the story was a little disjointed at times, however the main character, a young woman, was also a little disjointed at times to. I did enjoy the book, but again only 3 stars worth.

A very boring book! The author jumps back and forth between 2017 and 2018 to tell a very confusing story. The only good thing in this book is that the murder got what was coming to them. A disappointing ending left me with a few unanswered questions. Don't waste your time reading this book unless you have a lot of time to waste.
