I finished this book in a day. It’s a page-turner to be sure. The style and different perspectives worked well. My only problem is the ending. Everything else was paced so perfectly until the ending which was rushed to the point of confusion. I kept scrolling over thinking there had to be more, but unfortunately there’s wasn’t. I do love endings that don’t tie everything up in a nice bow and this certainly fits that bill. However, after all the build up the ending felt flat and mostly unresolved.

So ridiculous and completely unrealistic!
Kept me guessing until the end
The book was great, but the ending was terrible. Absolutely no closure. To have so many point of views through out the book and then none of them tie together is so disappointing. It’s like, putting puzzle pieces together into their spots and then never connecting them.
Couldn’t put it down
I like reading books with bad review - they are always the best ones! This kept me captivated throughout the entire book. Plot twists had me actually reading with my mouth hanging open. The ending was NOT expected at all. Great read.
Don’t buy this book it never goes anywhere. It’s not a murder mystery
This book is marketed as a murder mystery?
But that’s about 10% of the book?
It’s mostly just hours of the author trying to sound like Hemingway by saying things like “the groomsmen held their torches like soldiers brandishing swords”. Overkill of metaphors and descriptive language that is so boring.
Mostly this is hours of characters going on and on and mundane boring thoughts and details.
I don’t care that Hannah’s room at the castle is twice as big as her room and home and that there is also an ice bucket in the room with expensive white wine and there’s also two glass sitting by it oh and there’s a chandelier above...it just doesn’t work in a murder mystery.
Get the the point! It never does!
Overall is ok
Keeps you into the island

An awesome awesome read… too many twists and turns throughout the whole book ... a crazy twist at the very end that you’ll never see coming… A very unique style of storytelling… It is a must read for sure. Enjoy 😀
HUGE waste of money
And then the lights went out...
Great summer read that will have you on the edge of your seat before the book goes from 0-60 in a matter of a few chapters. Very clever, fun and entertaining book!
