This was a fun ride ( )

This book started slow, and even the shifting between the viewpoints of the three cousins didn't really help with that. It did do good things for filling in a range of background, as well as setting up a number of details that didn't become relevant until much later.

It wasn't until the first major twist, at something like a quarter or a third through, where I started getting invested. I have some spoilery thoughts about the twists and turns of this story, so I've put that below.

For all that I found this slow paced, according to the reading app it too me an hour (across multiple commutes) to finish, which seems much shorter than I would have assumed.

I loved that most of the twists had to do with identity. And that the various people all had such interesting ways of interlacing their two selves. There are definitely some parallels that can be drawn between being a Story (or pretending not to be) and pretending to be a Story.

I was frustrated by the inevitable confrontation followed by risk to life and limb, but eh, I accept that that is a trope of the genre. It is just one of the things that make me not love the murder mystery genre. ( )

I thought this book had a slow start. I struggled a little bit at the start to tell the various pOV apart. I thought the end of the book def took the cake with so many unexpected twists and turns. I really loved the ending. This book had so many vibes of jennifer lynn barnes reads that def tied into the family connection. Once I got into the read, I had a hard time putting it down. It was a fast pace read and by the end i def did grow to love all the characters!! ( )

WTF? I thought I had the mystery in this book figured out, that was a big heck no. I did not see that twist ending! Karen McManus, I will read every single one of your books because you are a queen! ( )
