Did not see the twist coming
What an awesome book. I was engrossed in this story. So much so that I never saw the twist. I actually screamed "Oh my god" out loud in my car. And Imogen Church is amazing as always!!!!

Narration was excellent
But I found that the first 75% of story was a bit too long and drawn out ...then everything happens in last few chapters. The story also goes back in time, then to present time, and I couldn't always work out who the character was (maybe I wasn't paying attention).
