A page turner with many twists, with an ending I did not see coming.

Good writing, kept me entertained, however didn't like the solution....

This thriller started out with a great premise--a pain in her wrist leads a young French professor to learn that she has a bullet lodged in the back of her neck. She did not know it was there and upon discovering it, finds she is not exactly who she thought she was. The book sucked me in with that premise and held pretty tight. The ultimate reveal, though, is not terribly surprising. I was kind of hoping for more twists and turns. But all-in-all, it wasn't a bad way to spend my weekend. I will certainly check out future books by Ms. Kelly.

If you're on a long flight or trying to divert yourself from something unpleasant, this is a good choice. It's a quick read that keeps you guessing. But be prepared to swallow some implausible scenarios, and a bit of romantic fluffiness. This is the equivalent of a reading doughnut - enjoy it while it lasts and try not regret it the next day.

I wasn't really expecting it, but this book sucked me in from the first page. A compelling page-turner. Looking forward to more from Mary Louise Kelly.
