I received this book for free free as part of an Instagram tour (TLC Book Tours specifically) I did to promote the book.
As a whole, this was an okay thriller. There were some things I liked and some things I didn’t.
My main issue was that the story was a little slow. It takes a while for the storyline to pick up. Usually with thrillers, I’ll be turning the pages like crazy trying to find out what happens next. But that didn’t happen with this book until the last 100 pages.
There were also a lot of characters and it was hard at first to differentiate them all, especially with the point of view shifts. Speaking of points of view, there was a tad bit too much of inner dialogue whenever there was a switch. It sometimes felt a little unnecessary.
As for what I liked, I found that the mood and tone were very effective. It really helped set the scene. The book was very atmospheric and really captured the eerie vibe of the Scottish woods.
The reveal at the end was a little underwhelming but in a way I liked that simplicity. Sometimes thrillers go way out there, so it was nice to see one that didn’t.
Overall, this wasn’t a mind blowing thriller in any way but I still found it entertaining.
