If you go into this one expecting a “mystery and thriller”, you’ll likely be disappointed.
While it definitely wasn’t a mystery or a thriller, never mind both, it was an engaging story and kept my interest from the first couple of chapters.
While I found there to be issues - seriously unlikeable characters, relationships (friendships and romantic alike) that felt oddly flat to this reader, unexplained pivotal moments, where is the mystery and thriller aspect?, as well as a need for some pretty major suspension of disbelief, I overall enjoyed this title, which I would describe as fun and similar to a Lifetime movie in book form. No snark to that. Sometimes, a Lifetime-esque movie is the perfect thing.
