First of all, I want to say that I requested this book because of the description and the fact that the author's last name is my maiden name. Of course I had to read it. There's not that many people with that last name.
Now, to the book. Wow, there were so many secrets and so many suspects. It was very, very sad what happened to Joy, but you never really got to see what the extent of her actions were until the end of the book. There were a lot of people's lives changed due to Joy's death, mostly for the bad. I can see, in Joy's mind where she was going, but she was so young and naive that she was way in over her head.
There was a bad ending for pretty much everyone in this book. You really couldn't see it coming, but it happened. I truly felt for a lot of these characters and this was yet another book I could not put down. I found myself reading this during the timing of my Thanksgiving recipes, I just could not put it down. I think I even made excuses to make time to read it in between what needed to be done for the recipes. Eeks, hopefully they will turn out. I know I read a great book, so my friends are going to have to suck it up on the turkey day side dishes. HA!!
Thanks Grand Central Publishing and Net Gallery for hitting me up with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review. I found this book riveting and definitely entertaining!
