I really enjoyed two previous books by this author. Both Such a Quiet Place and The Last to Vanish were four star reads for me. I liked this one but I didn’t love it. This is a slow burner and sometimes that can be a good thing as it adds anticipation but in this case, I found it a little too slow and it just didn’t hit the mark for me.

I did, however, love the format of the book, going backwards in time and the two timelines of past and present but I found the large group of characters a little hard to follow and keep straight with the mix of timelines and it was hard to get an understanding of them.

I also found that the ending lacked any element of surprise as I had it figured out before I got to the reveal. Would I recommend this particular book? The answer is no. Would I read this author again? Most definitely.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the Advance Readers Copy.
