What I like about Hilderbrand’s novels (well the two I’ve read to date) is that despite having the feel of a fun, cozy beach read it ‘s also a novel that makes you think and sticks with you for awhile after you finish reading.
Meredith Delinn is not a character that you like right away. From the get go you know that her husband is a crook and although Meredith claims that she had no idea what her husband was doing you have to wonder if that was truly the case or if Meredith is an unreliable narrator and should be trusted.
But somehow you find yourself liking Meredith. I know I did. Constance was a little harder, opposite of Meredith it was a litter harder to gage her motivations. I’m still not certain if I liked her.
