I was immediately intrigued by the synopsis of this book and the beginning did hook me in with its high intensity and then slow burn but then I became pretty bored with this book. The story telling was a little monotone compared to the high tension beginning. Overall not a bad book but I wish it would have kept its pace throughout.
Hollow’s Edge was a very nice neighborhood until a murder occurred and one of its residents, Ruby, was convicted of killing her neighbors. Then her conviction gets overturned and much to everyone’s surprise, she returns to Hollow’s Edge to live with her roommate Harper. Harper is just as surprised as everyone else and isn’t sure whether she believes Ruby is innocent or not so she starts to dive into what really happened that fatal night and who is responsible for the killings.
I usually love Megan Miranda’s writing but this one was a little too slow for me. The beginning was super interesting as Ruby moves back in with Harper, even though Harper wasn’t expecting that to happen and the story jumps between the past and what led to Ruby’s conviction and the current happenings. There are some moments that are tense and twisty but for the most part I wasn’t super into it.
Many thanks to Simon and Schuster for the gifted copy for my honest review!
