I believe I must first disclose that I received this book free through Goodreads First Reads. Also, please forgive me. I am not a writer for good reason, as you will see in the following review.
The book has a familiar, but welcoming storyline. I do agree with some other reviewers that the book lead with a slower start than I prefer. The storyline draws the reader in during the middle of the book and holds them there until the end. The end left me wanting more, not in the sense that the book was inadequate, but in the sense that I wouldn't mind reading a sequel or prequel.
I disagree about the annoyances with typos. Typos happen occasionally throughout the book, but it does not distract from or interrupt the story.
Overall, I rated this book as 3-star. I liked the book. I enjoyed the writing, the typos were few and far between, and the concept was good. At the same time, I could take this book or leave it. While I enjoyed the read and it was a good way to pass the time, it was, overall, just a good book. Perhaps I should have warned at the beginning of my review that my main obsession is thrillers and crime...
I would recommend this book to young adults and those from a younger audience.
By the way, thank you!!
