We have four characters to keep track of in this book. Dani Lancing, her mother and father Patty and Jim, and Tom, Dani's boyfriend from when they were kids.
I have to say that sometimes you will come across books out there that have no sympathetic characters at all. Those are the hardest books to finish for me because you just don't care what happens to the characters and when that happens you don't have a really big incentive to finish the book. Anything you make up in your head will always be better than the ending anyway.
With regards to this book, except for the character of Jim, I ended up disliking Dani's mother and found her ex Tom beyond creepy and obsessed.
It did not help that the narrative kept jumping from the past to the present and back again and as a reader I found it to be a very long winding road trying to understand how Dani died and who was ultimately responsible for her murder. Once that was ultimately revealed I just felt annoyed by the constant 'red herrings' that were strewn about the place. The ending was just awful and it leaves you scratching your head wondering why you wasted your time reading this book.
Please note that I was provided this book for free via the Amazon Vine Program in exchange for a honest review.
