This is... bad. The plot is okay, if a bit cliche, but the prose is actively painful in some places. The dialogue is stilted and unnatural. The descriptions are sometimes mini Wikipedia entries, like the author was literally copying info from an entry while she wrote. The only reason this is a 2 and not a 1 is that it’s charmingly bad, like a really hokey, badly acted Lifetime movie. Also major spoilers for And Then There Were None.
