I have a love-hate thing going with this book. The audio version was very enjoyable as the author has a great narrating voice. I liked listening it in my car…and then I started guessing where it was going. Then I just wanted it to be over. The protagonist was such a dumb ass.
1) There’s nothing in her background that I could buy her risking her life in a very dangerous way. She doesn’t come out as savvy enough for that. She was nervous when she realized Eddie had info on her life, but then proceeds to make decisions that put her in a far more dangerous situation than Eddie could have. Riiiiight…..
2) If Eddie was so locked in on her life, how is it that he didn’t know Marc was involved? In fact, I don’t think I quite got just HOW involved Marc was. When the plane first crashed, I thought for sure that Eddie was involved but once the story got going, I knew Marc had to be linked somehow. I just don’t think that part of the story was tied up very well. Too many loose ends. Like why did that damn bag keep showing up in their honeymoon suite if someone else hadn’t been involved? Made no sense.
3) Every decision she made was so damn stupid.
Okay – so maybe I disliked it more than I liked it. Don’t let me pick the next book.
