Oy vey. Just...not my favorite. Twists weren't fun, story didn't go anywhere...it had some interesting things to say about the lengths that men will go to justify their actions, and then it just didn't use them for anything. But, despite all that, a fun and easy read. Definitely good fodder for this time of year just to get into the mood.

This is my first Riley Sagar novel and this was definitely one heck of a wild ride! From beginning to end, I was caught up in what really happened at Baneberry Hall. Thankfully, Sagar had written Maggie as a realistic main character, suspicious but still willing to set the record straight as far as how past meet the expectations from her father’s book. I totally did not see the wrap up to end the way it did. While some parts of Ewan’s storytelling seemed to be a little hard to get into at times, the present day understandings and piecing together made up for it. Looking forward to reading more from this author!
