I have only read a couple of Susan’s books and enjoyed them, however with this book I found it a little slow going to start with, towards the middle it started to get better and the ending was good. The story could be an uncomfortable story for some, teacher being with pupil I am not saying I agree with it all so I was curious and intrigued about where the story would lead. Throughout the second half of the book I found turns that I was shocked I didn’t pick up on, the characters are captivating and the twists are very good.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley for sending me a copy.
