But the joke turns sour when Grace does not appear. Despite the best efforts of the police and local community, Grace seems to have vanished into thin air. I have to say the blurb and the cover are both intriguing, so it is easy to see why you wanted to read the book. But your niggles make me hesitate on this one.xedispisuky.gq
Daughter’s secret Facebook party got out of hand leaving family home in ruins
So at least you finished it! That kind of stuff turns my stomach. Less is more, IMO. Another great review, Shalini! Hope you are having an enjoyable Thursday! So it made the book a dark read.. I really like your review of this one and I love darker themed books, as you know. Mackey, since it is you and not many would read this comment.
It has borderline incestuous relationship so it was a bit difficult to stomach that, I guessed it, hence I could read… But it is icky.
Should dad reveal his daughter’s dark secret to her soon-to-be fiancé? : theCHIVE
When you describe icky, that signaled to me — do not read. I salute you for being able to finish the book! You have discovered too many difficulties to make it appealing to me. Keep trying. Your next captivating book is out there! Which was actually abuse now that I think about it. Great review, Shalini! Do you think relationships without dark sides are possible? We are all except you ;- no angels. Best wishes for a beautiful weekend.
I need to like the characters to really get pulled into a story too. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account. You are commenting using your Twitter account. You are commenting using your Facebook account. Notify me of new comments via email.
Notify me of new posts via email. Skip to content I loved the blurb, I loved the beginning of the story. Claire was unlikable. I could understand her pain but not her attitude. Her reactions felt odd at some moments. But I could let go of it for the story The ex-husband was an abuser one who physically hit Claire throughout her marriage but was shown as a reformed man.
It all felt a little unbelievable. The new husband was a bit whiny at times I liked that the book read fast , the ending was left for us to assume. I was!! All my reviews can be found here Would you read such a story which has darker sides of a relationship?
