    I had put off reading this, my first BOMC book for quite some time because I wasn't sure how 'serious' it was. It was such a fabulous fun book that was well written and thought-provoking. I loved it!

    This book was a wonderful read. It was a slower build but still kept you intrigued with its twists and turns! It wasnt slow to the point where you put it down and forget to pick it up again.
