(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).

I have a few mixed feelings about this book now, having reached the end. As it stands, I think I can only give it 3 stars.
A lot of the book seems to come across as a character study. Although I feel the police came across as kind of incompetent, it was interesting to see the way a celebrity’s life was changed by finding a dead body and there being evidence to link her to the murder.
I found it easy at times to relate to the main character, even though there was far too much switching between tenses. I liked reading about her relationship with her husband and daughter, as well as the attempts to form friendships with others outside of her family.
There were a couple of moments in the book where I found myself smiling a little. Despite the mixing of tenses, the book was easy to read, with enough mystery to keep me reading in the hopes of finding out what would happen.
Unfortunately, the ending of the book really pulled it down. There was no foreshadows in regards to what was revealed (at least in my opinion) and I was quite disappointed in it, to be honest.
I’m not sure if I would read other books by this author. I think it would depend on the book itself.
