This is a typical suspense novel about a 18 year old in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant. Because of this, it comes to light that neither her mother or father are her biological parents. This leads into a kidnapping and murder mystery that connects to correspondence between two teenage girls in a mental hospital.
Unfortunately the writing style is rather flat and, although this can be quite common in this kind of novel, the characters are two dimensional and the dialogue is a bit awkward. I found myself skimming quickly through the book in order to finish it and being reluctant to pick it up.
The premise is intriguing but halfway through the book you have pretty much figured out everything. In a good mystery suspense the reader is often lulled into thinking they have solved the plot and then comes the twist. It can be a variation on what the reader has surmised or it can come completely out of left field. This book went with the first style but it was a bit weak on surprise and punch. I found quite predictable.
It’s an easy beach read with an interesting basic plot if you’re just looking for something relaxing.
