Great narration, a little bit confusing storyline, especially with all the twists are revealed

I’m obsessed with Freida McFadden and pretty much worship the computer that she writes on lol, but I was a little bit confused by the ending in this book. We went back in time but we weren’t told that and then we were jumping from character to character so much that I was getting really confused. All of a sudden character a, was actually character B, character C was actually character D etc. you get the picture. It might just be that I’m super tired and thus was having trouble concentrating but I wasn’t terribly crazy about this book. So the very last twist about the Grandpa selling fake 1st editions was great. I loved that reveal. But me not liking this book as much could be because I’ve read so many of her others which were all five out of fives for me. The bar was set so high, so it’s not really her fault, because as I said, she’s pretty amazing lol.

Boring

I found this book to be boring. I kept waiting for the something to happen. And then 15 minutes at the end of the book a whole bunch of twists that were quite confusing.
I did not like this book.

Very good book

I really liked the book. It was engaging and narration was well done. A few parts were a hit confusing but came together in the end.

Great narration

I usually love Frieda McFadden books..unfortunately this one was not up to her usual standard. I was bored most of the wat through, until the ending, then I was just confused.
