As a whole the story was intriguing by itself. However, the main character Nora was one that I found to be a tough pill to swallow. Just like people you will not like every character you encounter but this one was different. Several times I almost put the book down completely. The way the novel ended wasn't the finale you were hoping for as you dredged along with Nora. This was one novel where I felt cheated that the main character didn't evolve to a better state. The plot line however, is very interesting with the setting described in wonderful detail.

I think the story line is interesting but the plot and character development could be improved. It was a fun book to enjoy in a quick read. I enjoyed Ware's book The Woman in Cabin 10 more.

As a first book, it was okay but not great. The 'mystery' was not too mysterious and it did seem almost YA. A quick read, can't really recommend it, later books improve.

I thought it a bit boring and all the characters unlikeable.

a bit superficial in terms of the narrative and complexity of the story, however, the tension is well managed, and that's ultimately what horror relies on. Not a powerful story, but it's competently crafted.

For me, I was expecting a mystery mixed with a little horror. I was envisioning friends getting together while a killer from one of the character's past comes to go after them.

What I ended up reading was a book about old grudges, miscommunication, unresolved teen angst, and a belief that once you return to your roots, you fall back into old patterns.

I would have preferred the mystery part be eliminated and the book been presented as a coming of age for a 20 something adult since I was more interested in that part of story then the 'mystery' part.
