I was drawn into the book immediately by the diary entry by Nina that basically said that she knew she was going to die. Then, the plot slowed down, but I persevered in reading and was thrilled when the pace picked up again all the way to the end. Nina is a wealthy and eccentric woman who is married to Connor, a younger man who is desperately unhappy about the pre-nup he signed with Nina. He meets up again with his high school love, Tabitha, a girl who seems ripe to be used since her life is a bad fairy tale. She is working a dead-end job as a waitress when Connor comes back into her life in his pricey sports car, sweeping her off her feet and taking her to a mansion hideaway to start an affair. When Nina is killed, the action truly increases. My heart raced as one suspect after another was vetted, with totally awesome clues as to whodunit. As an avid reader of mysteries, I think that helped me figure out the ending, but there were still some unexpected surprises. This book became totally absorbing about halfway through and was hard to put down. Fans of thrillers will enjoy it for sure!
