I m torn about this book I enjoyed the story for the most part and found the plot very compelling, but I pretty much hated the ending It just wasn t a satisfying resolution and by satisfying, I mean it didn t seem like a good payoff for the plot view spoiler One of my big gripes with this book was the loan Ian took out from his father in law I really, really hate how a lot of books will use a husband in financial distress who lies to his wife about shady financial steps and or cheats finan I m torn about this book I enjoyed the story for the most part and found the plot very compelling, but I pretty much hated the ending It just wasn t a satisfying resolution and by satisfying, I mean it didn t seem like a good payoff for the plot view spoiler One of my big gripes with this book was the loan Ian took out from his father in law I really, really hate how a lot of books will use a husband in financial distress who lies to his wife about shady financial steps and or cheats financially behind his wife s back to drive the plot I mean, it would be fine if this was a plot point and then the wife freaked out on the husband or the husband suffered some other consequence, but I read this particular trope so many times, and so many fictional women, like Andi, just shrug this off When she finds out w...

  6. 4.5 stars.Always a sucker for a book set at a boarding school, I was absolutely entranced by the setting of this novel After the author ushered me into Glenlake Academy, it was easy to picture the perfect row of faculty homes blanketed by snow, the places you would go to sneak a smoke or a kiss, and the classroom with the broken AC system where the students sat transfixed by the writer in residence while picturing a future for themselves as poet or investigative journalist I also enjoyed the s 4.5 stars.Always a sucker for a book set at a boarding school, I was absolutely entranced by the setting of this novel After the author ushered me into Glenlake Academy, it was easy to picture the perfect row of faculty homes blanketed by snow, the places you would go to sneak a smoke or a kiss, and the classroom with the broken AC system where the students sat transfixed by the writer in residence while picturing a future for themselves as poet or investigative journalist I also enjoyed the structure of the novel It ping pongs back and forth between the past and the present and three different points of view While that could be distracting from a less masterful author...

  12. Liked this a lot It s a shame that I have less to say about books I like than about books that let me down I liked the characters, particularly the feisty daughter I liked the setting, an exclusive prep school, because I like when an author takes me into an unfamiliar world And of course I also like thinking I m getting a sneak peak into the lives of the elite I thought the book had some great twists and turns Even though the instigation of the intrigue, the motive, was nothing new or unex Liked this a lot It s a shame that I have less to say about books I like than about books that let me down I liked the characters, particularly the feisty daughter I liked the setting, an exclusive prep school, because I like when an author takes me into an unfamiliar world And of course I also like thinking I m gett...
