My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I know from an experience that any book that has a shocking or mysterious first chapter will end up to have a phenomenal plot and twisted ending. I liked the fact that book went back and forth between Christmas day and the days that lead to the family’s tragedy.
The book has covered many issues, such as bullying, adultery, money fraud. I liked how the author told the story from the point of view of each main character. And speaking of the characters, we’ve got an interesting mix here: sweet and goodhearted young kid, angry teenager, a wife who tries to keep her family together, money and power hungry husband, who also cheats on his wife, and draws money from his business. A young and jealous mistress who wants to keep her lover and his wealth all to herself and takes very dangerous steps to do so. And finally, a fifteen-year-old boy, who doesn’t have time to be a kid because of his mother’s illness, becomes a caretaker for his mum and 2 young brothers. Thru all of the above characters together and you got yourself an extraordinary mystery thriller.
This was my first book by this author but it will not be the last!
