(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
Although I generally don’t really like multiple first person POVs, I did them tolerable to read in this book. It was interesting to see the four different characters and how they had to deal with the death of a person so close to all of them.
I found each of the POV characters to be really interesting and although they each seemed shallow and somewhat vapid from the outside, when I was inside their heads, I felt like I was able to get to know the characters better as the book went on.
It was interesting to learn the secrets the different characters were keeping and I had a lot of sympathy for Val… even though I didn’t think she was a very nice person to Haddie. Reggie was probably the person I found the most interesting… although her apparent obsession with Jackson kind of made her seem less intelligent than she probably was.
I also found Livia to be an interesting character… vastly different to how she came across in her first appearance. I did feel some sympathy for Haddie… but although her father did come across as overbearing, I did think that she was making some bad choices.
I couldn’t really understand why Jackson had managed to draw so many people to him, since he didn’t come across as very charming/nice from what was revealed about him during the course of the book.
While it was interesting to see the police officers questioning, I did think they weren’t exactly professional. While that could have been due to seeing them through the eyes of the other characters, it would have been good to see more of their personalities.
There were a lot of elements of tension in this book and I did find it really easy to read, if quite complicated due to everything that was going on. I did kind of like Marcus at first… but I went off him by the end of the book.
I did think that the book ended quite abruptly and I was left with more questions than answers by the end. I would like to read a sequel to this.
