Norma’s Review

Tumultuous, puzzling, & a twisty page-turner!

This book reads extremely fast but while I was reading it though I was never fully immersed in this tale. There was nothing that was grabbing me here until well the end and then it’s like I wish that I would have spent the time with this book before reaching the end. The book is just as puzzling as the author’s writing style and that is all I’m going to say.

Oh my goodness where do I even start with this book……So let’s just say I have to go back and read the whole book over again well because that ending is making me want to do it. LOL

So I was definitely 3 stars all the way until I reached the ending which has made me bump it up to 4 stars. Take the time with this one…..

Norma’s Stats:
Cover: Stunning, striking, suspenseful, mesmerizing, impressive, impactful and fitting representation to storyline. #coverlove This book wins my vote for best cover design ever!!!
Title: Intriguing, relevant, suspenseful and a fitting representation to storyline.
Writing/Prose: Engaging, vivid, awkward, puzzling, readable, tense, and well-written. Okay, I know I’m all over the place with the author’s writing style but for the most part I found the writing style quite puzzling and thought it was packed full of riddles. Then the ending…..
Plot: Fast-paced, suspenseful, twisty, puzzling, entertaining, enjoyable, and somewhat underwhelming until closer to the end.
Ending: Oh my goodness what an absolutely fabulous resolution that totally flabbergasted me. I don’t know if I was just so uninterested in the whole storyline in the beginning that I just wasn’t retaining any of it but let me tell you that ending definitely brought the whole book home for me. So good!
Overall: Although I mostly had a problem with the execution throughout most of this book the ending definitely made up for it. This was a Traveling Friends Read and everyone else loved it and really didn’t have the same reading experience with this book as I did. So I would definitely recommend to give this one a try and how can you not with a cover like this one?

Thank you so much to Simon & Schuster Canada and Megan Miranda for gifting me a copy of this beautiful book! Did I already mention that I am rocking that cover? LOL
