Very surprised at the high reviews as this wasn't what I expected. The beginning of the book reminded me of Flowers in the attic and the author's writing was all over the place. No real story line and the ending was abrupt. Would not recommend reading for your book club.

 
  "Flawed characters but ending was a serious letdown" by brnoze (see profile) 01/18/21

I hung in to the end and wish I hadn’t. Characters were flawed and story flopped around which was annoying but the ending was too far fetched and for me unbelievable.

  "It Was A Miss" by kmw2017 (see profile) 05/24/21

This book ultimately
annoyed me on so many levels. I found the main characters implausible, and irritating. I selected the audiobook. I often find audiobooks disappointing if the narrator(s) portraying the roles come across forced and unbelievable. The book was recommended to me based on a survey of favorites. It was a miss.
