Disappointing. I was expecting more from this book. I felt the background story didn’t tie in. I did not see the love between Pearl and Charles. Patrick and Mel were ok but bland. Mel was just bland as a character. I didn’t really feel anything from her at all. Bella was so stereotypical I just rolled my eyes. All the characters stories were just so 2D no depth at all. And also, was anyone actually buried in the garden? I might has missed it because I didn’t really engage with this book. Please follow and like us:
I absolutely loved this book. It was one of those books that I could not put down and I had to finish it. I found the characters interesting, believable and with a personality. There were neither saccharine nor distant. The plot I felt was good and kept me intrigued until the end. I did guess what had happened, but I wanted to see how it would pan out. The book had just the right amount of story, mystery and emotions. I loved the ending as well. It was one of those rare books where none of the characters annoyed me. Amy, I felt was a reliable, believable character. Her story had tragedy but not pity. Aurelia, I loved her character, she was dramatic but loveable. She also had a weakness, but she didn’t let it slow her down and she did what she wanted. Again, no pity here. Mrs Rivertorp, I am such a fan of hers. I think she is one of those dragon type ladies but has a heart underneath. The ending was good, I loved how in the end the backstory story of Amy’s didn’t matter.
