Her Last Secret by Barbara Copperthwaite

I received this book via NetGalley and was initially afraid that I might not like it enough to enjoy writing a review for it. It turned out that the very last few chapters were a turning point. I am not a fan of the book for the sole reason that I tend to need certain closures to feel satisfied with a book. This information I offer ahead of the actual review because it colours it, and if that factor is removed the book is good.

The story is of a dysfunctional family, each with their own demons plaguing them every step of the way. It brings to question our logical assumptions of actions and their respective reactions. We are given the end picture to begin with and while swinging back and forth, each day’s page turns changing things a little bit at a time. Every time we assume the path to the end we already know seems standard, someone does something unexpected. I was not a fan of the writing style by itself and the struggle of the characters got a little too much for me at times which is why I am just giving it only two stars.

I have a long list of books with me at present so I might release a ‘to read’ list shortly before I stack up more books reviews.
