This book gives new meaning to the term slow burn, almost to the point of boredom. The prologue was fantastic and had me hooked right away, but it started to go downhill from there.

The story is told from the POV of many different people in the small town. I normally love multiple POV, but in this chase I think it detracted from the story. So many people and yet not one of them I felted connected to.

I kept reading and didn’t DNF because I wanted to know how it ended, even though, honestly at about 50% I decided I didn’t really care how it ended. Then the ending came and it definitely left something to be desired. After all is said and done, I don’t know what the point of the story was. Rich people problems.

I’ve seen lots of great reviews for this book and I’m glad so many people enjoyed it. All books have their audience, but this one just wasn’t for me.
