    Meh For a forensic psychologist, Megan is sort of a ditz and her sister is even of one Sisters having simultaneous parallel affairs with their younger students Puhleez The witchcraft angle was pretty silly, and the identity of the murderer was an anticlimax Not sure what the fuss is about it s a chick book, but at least it only took a couple of hours to read.

    It was not what I expected Firstly it was a British written book There were some words I didn t recognize, but interesting to see the terminology they use Secondly, I didn t expect the ending I like when the ending is different than I try picturing as I read the book It was nice to see a woman in the role that Dr Rhys portrayed A good read after getting into the first few chapters.
