    Didn't Quite Work for Me

    Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for an advance copy of this book in return for an honest review. This has to be the most dysfunctional family ever. When the matriarch, Valerie, dies, two of her three daughters gather to clean up the family home. A home full of secrets. And two dead bodies. From there, the craziness just unfolds, page after page. I was astounded at how much the plot twists and turns, and how totally crazy this family was. That being said, the book just didn’t work for me. First, for some reason, I had a very hard time keeping the characters straight. The narrative jumps from one character to another, and it just wasn’t cohesive. Second, there is so much plot twisting (read that as craziness), that there is no suspense. It was just a barrage of one more piece of crazy after another (abuse, abortion, infanticide, incest, prostitution, murder, just to name a few) that it was tiring to keep up with who did what to whom. I felt like I was on overload while reading instead of sinking into the story. This book just wasn’t for me. If you happen to like this genre, you might enjoy it. I’d liken it to Flowers in the Attic, which was such a popular book that it became a series. That one just didn’t work for me either, but might work for you.

    Gripping tale

    This was an exceptionally good read, loads of twists and turns that had you scratching your head for answers right up to the end.Highly recommend.
