    • This was an okay read really didn t like the characters was way to slow, couldn t feel the tension the prose sounded interesting but it just did nothing for me TRIGGER WARNING There is abuse issues in this novel which didn t sit well for me, this is my first read by this author will try again wasn t a complete waste of time.


    • What We Did by Christobel Kent was the first book that I have read by this author that I have heard so much about I was really looking forward to reading this one but unfortunately for me it did not live up to expectations I found it to be very slow paced and long with characters that I just could not relate to The story was good, although it covers some tough issues Bridget has been hiding a secret from everybody in her life, including her husband She has moved on with her life until one d What [...]

    • Although I still have her earlier books to read I started this one first I found it to be fast paced, well written and it kept you on edge It did remind me a little of one I read a few months ago, The Other Woman, in some parts However I would recommend it and certainly would like to see it as a TV drama maybe.


    • Disturbing subject matter This book could have been a very interesting storyline on sexual predators grooming children Instead, the narrative was so disjointed it was nearly impossible to follow the plot line There were some twists, thus the 3 star rating Overall, felt the author missed an opportunity to really explore the grooming issue The characters were not well developed Did not connect with the protagonist or really any of the characters About way through this book, found myself sk Disturb [...]
