My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I honestly did not know what to expect from this book when I started it. I enjoy mysteries, and I have always been a fan of the story "Rebecca." For the first third of the book, I figured that I would give it a four-star rating. It had a pretty good story, was well-written, and the mystery was somewhat intriguing. But it was nothing too special. Yes, I could see where it had some similarities to "Rebecca." Woman marries a guy she hardly knows and walks into the middle of what becomes an increasingly strange situation. But I felt it was missing something.
All that changed about a third of the way into the book! All of a sudden, the action and mystery became much more intense. Everything was told from Marlie's perspective so many of the facts were missing. The genetic issues really gave me pause--no spoilers; you need to read that for yourself. I was not greatly intrigued with Marlie, and every page I read became more eerie and filled with suspense. I had a few things correct concerning my suspicions, but for the most part, I was floored with the conclusions!
I can highly recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries. Rest assured that there is no profanity nor sex scenes. In fact, the book is extremely moralistic in nature, and I am happy to report that this story ends as it should. I definitely will be looking for more by this author.
