I absolutely devoured this book. Until around 80% of it, I was thinking it was one of the best books I’ve ever read. However, the paranormal element towards the end unfortunately took it from 5 to 4.5 stars.

I really liked this book. I wasn’t expecting the twist but I would have given it a 4 is spoiler it wasn’t for the twist being more of a ghost-type story than I’m used to spoiler making it unrealistic for my taste at least. I enjoyed the main character and the fast past!

Spoilerridiculous story line when the mystery is revealed
