My Rating: 5/5
Review: I loved this book and read it in a day which is something I rarely ever manage. The book is set over one day and the story progresses in 2 hour chunks during which we get to see the 4 characters make decisions and react to what is going on around them. This book is so well-written that these changes are clear and the story is easy to follow which is not always the case in stories with multiple main characters.
The characters are really well-written and come alive off the page. I was rooting for some of them and feeling bad for others. It certainly tugs at your heart-strings. It’s a brilliant story which is well crafted and shows how decisions that people make can have unexpected consequences and not always go to plan. This is a book that I didn’t want to end it was honestly that good.
I cannot recommend this book anymore than I have done already. I’ve struggled to write this review because I wasn’t sure how to do it and do justice to this book. I cannot wait to read more by this author.
