This author has been on my radar for a while so I decided to just go for it when I saw this book on Net Galley but it was disappointing. The book starts off with Nick dying. Clare is widowed and left alone with her two kids. The way in which the story is told is just strange and kind of frustrating. I think it would have worked better for me if Nick died later in the book.
As an oddball who went from reading mostly adult books from the age of twelve until the past few years I felt that I needed to try to work in more adult books and this was one of them. I'm not sure if this style is the same in the other books she's written but I just didn't like it. It is told in such a way that you're not even sure when you are. I'm not really a fan of flashbacks but if they are done right I'm okay with them.
The more I read of this book the more I realized that I didn't care about whether or not Nick's accident was as it seemed. Actually this kind of felt like an episode of Pretty Little Liars that fucked with my head in a not good way. When I decided that I wouldn't continue this book I happened to come across a review and that made me realize that I made the right decision when I decided to put this book aside so I could read another book. I'm not sure if I'd try another book by this author because I wasn't a fan of the style. If I happen to find one of her other books at the library I might check it out but usually when I don't like a book the odds are good that I won't like another one written by that author since I just have a pretty good instinct on what works for me and what doesn't and this book just doesn't.
