I need the final book in this series right now. The pace of is somewhat slow for the entire book, except for the last 30 minutes of the audiobook where you are hit with intense revelations and shocking news and obviously a deadly cliffhanger. This was more enjoyable than the first book and if you love wild unexpected twists you're in for a treat.

lahousewyfe YES! When I last checked it wasn't even available for preorder. Argh!!! 4h
lahousewyfe Wait! I just checked again and it's scheduled for release in January. Preorder success! 4h

I really enjoyed this one despite it being a bit slow in places. Now, even though I have begun another book, my mind is consumed with getting my hands on the second book in this series! Full Review here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2691113939?book_show_action=false&from_rev...

I really liked this book to my surprise. The last Hepworth I read had too many characters and was too over the top for me. But this one had complexities making the characters whole. ⭐️⭐️⭐️🌜 from me

The #lakeside goings-on in this novel may not be the idyllic ones the word usually suggests, but this is where my mind went first.🤷‍♀️ #letstravelaugust @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @originalembot

After reading the Shades of London series earlier this year and having a bit of a love/hate relationship with it, I was honestly scared to pick this series up. But, thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised! It feels like it was written by an entirely different person! Thank goodness.

I really enjoyed this one, probably more than I was expecting! The mystery of what happened to the mother-in-law kept me guessing and I loved how seeing everything unfold from both the MIL and main character allowed you to really see how differently two people can view the same situations. You never really know what someone else has gone through or what they think until you communicate! Solid 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Really enjoyed this book and was such a page turner- I finished in 2 days!!! No slow parts to get through! Love the subject matter and the suspense of finding out what happened. I don‘t think this book could disappoint!

I really tried to like this but 50 pages in and I couldn‘t do it. I don‘t know if its because I‘m not in the right mood for this kind of book (even though I JUST finished a murder mystery before picking this book up) or because of the writing or plot. But either way, it hurts my heart to DNF this one but I fear I may push myself into another reading slump if I try to force myself to continue.... 🙈

MelissaSue81 I honestly couldn‘t understand this book. I slogged through it but I still don‘t think I know what happened. 1w
Alfoster Agree! I bailed too @MelissaSue81🤪 1w
TrishB I bailed too! 1w
Sapphire I listened on audio and really wanted to bail the entire middle third. It didn't start to redeem it self till the very end. Overall I am glad I finished because the twist was interesting, but it was a bit of a tortured telling. Which kind of fits I guess if the author wanted the readers to have a taste of what the characters go through. 1w

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Whereas I took my time reading my last few books, I finished this big one in 2 days. I can't believe how hooked I was on the plot, the characters and how everything ended fitting together! It was absolutely amazing and I've already recommended all my friends read this. It was a very compelling read that always kept me wanting to continue, one more chapter every time. I'm especially amazed at how the MCs are written.
