This was a good start for a first novel but it was so slow that I almost gave up. It wasn’t the crime thriller that I was hoping for, but more of a cosy romance mystery. As another reader said, it would have worked better had it been set in the Australian outback as this level of absolute isolation is difficult to find in the UK. The writing was very descriptive – too much at times – and the plot was a bit far-fetched for me. It was interesting in parts but I wasn’t thrilled or excited at any point and it was just OK. I wish the author well with it though, and thank NetGalley and the publishers for allowing me the opportunity to read it.
