My review: This was a way fun book to read. I really enjoyed Jan's character in this book. Jan is a widow trying to do her best to care for herself and her teenage daughter, Heather. I thought that her life was pretty crazy, she's dealing with this huge thing at work and Heather is being really secretive at the same time. I thought that the author did a really great job of showing us what life would be like for a single, working mother. I thought that the other characters in the book were good as well, but Jan was the one that I identified with the most, because the whole book is in her perspective.
I thought that the plot was good in this book, but at times it seemed to move just a bit slowly for me. I did like that I had no idea how the murder had been committed until Jan discovers what happens at the very end. I liked how she was able to pull that off, but the end seemed really rushed to me, as though not everything was tied up. All in all, this is a good book that will keep you wanting to know what happened until the very end.
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
