Avatar for EmilyEm EmilyEm said:
Older sister Beatrice can’t believe her younger sister Tess has committed suicide as the police conclude. Their family history, and Tess’s beliefs and actions, just make this verdict unbelievable to her sister. Who knows best? There’s plenty of suspense as Bea takes on the task of investigating the circumstances surrounding the event and men in her sister’s life. The plotting of this book is unique: Bea writes her sister a posthumous letter; she is being interviewed by a solicitor for a court case; she is coming to terms with all the messy details and grief death of a loved sister entails. The author weaves this all together pretty flawlessly and her screenwriter skill makes the dialogue sing. But, as Bea’s life begins to unravel from the strain, what’s real and what’s not unraveled this reader. Read it for the suspense; it’s a page turner. As a classic mystery, not so much.
