This was a selection for my book club and I went into it with zero expectations, which was probably good. It was a fast easy read. The story moved along quickly and it kept me hooked, wondering what would happen next but in general I didn't like it. I didn't find any of the characters likable and I didn't really care what happened to them. In the end, no one seemed to suffer the repercussions of their actions. I'd recommend it if you like a quick mystery but not if you're looking for a deep story or well written novel.

From the blurbs I thought this might be a good tale of love and loss, but what I found was merely dark and depressing. The plot was haphazard, riddled with coincidences and tortuous manipulations, kind of a soap opera with literary aspirations. The people are what one would expect in such a story; the adults, especially, were clueless and self-centered, and not at all believable. It all led to a predictable, unsatisfying conclusion.
