I will say that I really enjoyed this story. It was engaging, pulling me in to the lives of the characters and making me care about them. However, there were also a couple things I had a problem with. The biggest thing is that the story was too big for the length it was written in. To say it another way, this seemed like a longer story that was squished into a smaller word count. The problem with this is two-fold. One, the characters don’t seem like they get developed as fully as they could be. And two, there is a lot of tell in this story that should have been show. I liked the concept, I just feel that the author didn’t write the story it had the potential to be.

This book I found a little perplexing. The introduction to the main character and the mystery surrounding the woman she was about to meet really enthralled me. The setting of the mystery was described beautifully. However I had difficulty in relating to the main crux of the tale. Up to this point I was intrigued and the plot had unfolded really well, then everything, to me, became rushed and the story was over.
I felt this could have been a brilliant outline to a complete novel, as it was I just felt it finished just as it had just begun.
The ending was very apt and moving. So I enjoyed the middle and the end and was just a little disappointed and confused re  the middle. Obviously a talented author and I do look forward to reading more of her work, just this novel left me unfulfilled.
