Chick-lit-ish kind of thriller. Nothing special, but not dreadful though predictable at times. Kept me entertained and turning the pages.

I got hugely annoyed by the enormous paragraph spacing though - I read it on the Kindle but I guess this feature is carried over from the print edition. The Kindle lets you adjust type size and line spacing but doesn’t have a “Please remove the two blank lines between each paragraph” option. It’s ok when there are long paragraphs, but quick dialogue sections - often one of the fastest moving bits of a thriller - get slowed down by page turning. I guess someone thought it made it “faster” that way. It doesn’t!
