Saint X has been one of my most anticipated reads! Diving in, it was different than what I had expected. Instead of the fast-paced thriller I had imagined (not sure what gave me this idea of it), it was definitely more of a slower character driven story than it was plot based. Throughout, it was very scenic and atmospheric - the descriptions of the characters, places, etc. were all very detailed, which was great for pulling you into the story. It was interesting to learn about all of the characters, and about the lives of everyone who was impacted by Alison's death. The ending was pretty unexpected, but felt a little out of place. If you're a fan of mysteries that are more character driven and descriptive, this may be a great one for you to check out!
