This was a great book! It kept me guessing right up until the murderer was revealed. Sadly, I had pegged the wrong killer, but it was still fun! The letters in between chapters were a little confusing at first and then, as an editor, they just irritated me because I felt like Leo was giving her horrible advice, but then it all kind of started to fall in place and the light bulb slowly started to turn on. The story within a story within a story was a bit confusing at times, but it works. It was hard sometimes to remember that the entire work was fictional.
