This was interesting. It was actually quite a thrill. On more than one occasion, I had to stop reading because my heart was thumping so loudly I could hear it in my ears.
That being said, those moments were few and far between. Tales of the main character's life, general life at Belle Vie and a some historical information sprinkled with a good, old-fashion murder mystery, that's what this book it. And I loved every single moment of it.
However, if you're looking for a book that will keep you on your toes from page one, this is not your book.
