So this book was really weird. Honestly couldn‘t summarize it even if I wanted to. All of the characters were nuts and the ending just wasn‘t satisfying. I don‘t think that everyone is super happy clappy, let‘s sing kumbayah and save the planet. But geez the antagonist‘s reaction was wayyyy over dramatic. Honey, eat a snickers. You‘re not you when you‘re angry

First thought as I reached the end was: huh?? It felt like reading a well written essay that never answered the exam question. So many things (not least the title) promised a supernatural mystery. But the supernatural was incidental and the mystery didn't work well. It was a great psychological study though: the characterisation of the female leads, their relationship, and the atmosphere building were superb. Shame they were let down by the plot.

Good read. No sympathy for Olivia character throughout even though I wanted to like her. Not 100% satisfied with the predictable ending.

Olivia has written a book with the help of Vivian. Vivian wants to help with a new book but Olivia has other plans. Twists and turns through out the book.

What to say about this one...a history professor (tv celebrity type) is tempted by a victorian woman‘s diary confessing to the murder of her husband- she was lured to it by Vivian- the keeper of the home where it was found. The story alternated between these 2 characters- both connected in a way you don‘t find out until the end. Beetles - dung beetles figure prominantly- weirdly and the end disappointed me. 3ish⭐️

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Dung beetles? 😟🤔 1y
Booksnchill @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled yes, quite a lot of beetle scientific drama- really a crux of the book and about as interesting to me as it sounds...💩 1y

Started this one due back to the library shortly. 20% in and it is certainly odd and somewhat confusing- told from 2 narrators Olivia a famous “tv” historian and Vivian- don‘t quite know what she is- they seem to have collaborated on a historical book based on a dairy of a Victorian woman- Annabel. Or maybe not- told backwards so I am just searching for clues so far. Something sinister is coming though!

Quick, easy to read thriller. Sort of guessed ending but enjoyed how it got there!
Only £5 hardback in Amazon at the moment - definitely worth that 😀
