My comments :
I should update this blog more but then recently I have been reading some books which I think rate around 1 or 2 stars out of 5 stars, hence I feel no point updating here.
However, I feel I should highlight this book. I bought it for just RM8 brand new from last year Big Bad Wolf Books Sale.
At first when I saw the book was so thick, I felt intimidated. Thought I may lose interest halfway. However, am glad to say this book is a real page turner.
I like the way the author introduced each character chapter by chapter and no all jumble up together. The story goes on from there on. No flash back here and there to confuse readers.
This is not just another Chick-lit but there are suspense too. Can't help noticing how the author artfully kept the suspense up to the very end before revealing the person who is plotting to murder for money. Oppsie...looks like I have revealed a bit spoiler.
Anyway, this is a good book to read if you are tired of the usual no brainer Chick-lit. This book is just nice as a vacation reads by the beach or swimming pool.
For me, I rate this book 4 stars out of 5 stars.
