Rating: 4.5 stars
This book is a mix of intrigue, humour (Bountiful is a particular favourite), romance, and a great selection of dysfunctional relationships all of which result in an enjoyable but light reading experience. What I had the most difficulty accepting was the idea of the reality show ‘Serial Date’, perhaps this could have been explained more with a short scene (I’m thinking the director pitching the show to executives) but more likely it has something to do with my in-built dislike of reality shows… So, it definitely piqued my interest when the contestants started dropping like flies. ;)
Why should you read it? In a nutshell it’s a fast-paced, non-linear story with some creepy elements mashed together with a splash of romance and dark humour. What’s not to like?
