This was a book I borrowed from the Library on my Kindle. Which I still think is amazing.

It started out slow. I am not sure why I continued reading it...but I am glad I did. That has been a theme around here lately with my books. Maybe I should never give up on any books that I read.

The book is set as one sister, Beatrice, writes a letter to her younger sister, Tess. Tess has gone missing and Beatrice immediately flies from the States to London to help find her.

Eventually Tess is found dead. (That is not a spoiler, the book synopsis tells you about it.) It is rules as a suicide, but Beatrice insists that Tess could never kill herself.

In this letter, Beatrice tells Tess her journey to finding the truth.

It is a book that tries to be suspenseful, but isn't too successful with it until the last quarter of the book. And it is also a book that is heavy on foreshadowing, which started to bother me. But now that I have finished it, I understand why. I think that is what I liked most about the book. How there were a couple of things that annoyed me, but once I understood everything, it made me actually like the book even more.

The author has a new book coming about next year. I will be reading it.
