    I was between 2 and 3 stars for this book It was very readable and I was interested in how it would all play out Unfortunately I mostly had no idea what was happening and not in a suspenseful, mysterious way, butin a frustrating and confusing way Parts of this story were so implausible and I found myself saying what out loud over and over Not entirely unenjoyable but I don t know that I d necessarily recommend it.

    For my full review, visit me at was a thrilling read and one where I couldn t quite predict the narrative All of the characters had an agenda and I could not fathom who would be the most guilty Indeed, it felt like we are on a journey with both Elle and Charlotte as truths are eventually discovered.For my full review, visit me at For my full review, visit me at was a thrilling read and one where I couldn t quite predict the narrative All of the characters had an agenda and I could not fathom who would be the most guilty Indeed, it felt like we are on a journey with both Elle and Charlotte as truths are eventually discovered.For my full review, visit me at

    This was such an unusual book but a fantastic entertaining read Why unusual The author manages to blend really real, often raw characters, very flawed with a plot that flips you upside down with its reveals It is so worth the wait as I did have moments of wondering where the darker element was coming into play The only reason this didn t get five stars as I think some of that darker edge could have been slipped in earlier in the book Teasing the reader a bitI have not read this aut This was such an unusual book but a fantastic entertaining read Why unusual The author manages to blend really real, often raw characters, very flawed with a plot that flips you upside down with its reveals It is so worth the wait as I did have moments of wondering where the darker element was coming into play The only reason this didn t get five stars as I think some of that darker edge could have been slipped in earlier in the book Teasing the reader a bitI have not read this author before but absolutely will again The way the characters are developed through the novel is great and I got that sense of satisfaction that a reader gets when you can connect with them The book raised different emotions and thoughts in me also I think this is a fabulous book for a book club as discussion could be really lively on this one.It is night, its dark with heavy raining pelting down and a stranger knocks on your door Do you let them in It could alter your life forever That s where the story begins Where it ends is a whole other matter You may or may not see it coming I did have an inkling but still loved the surprises and twists The book tackles some important social issues too, I won t mention them here as they will spoil things for you but I liked the way the author weaved those in Go in with an open mind, this wasn t exactly what I imagined it to be like but it certainly did not disappoint.A recommended read from me It will appeal to both psychological thriller fans especially those who love damaged goods characters 4 stars from me I really enjoyed this one Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for my review copy of What We Forgot to Bury All opinions are my own and totally unbiased
