As I may have mentioned in reviews, Gillian Flynn is a good writer, however, I think she has a pretty dim view of humanity overall. I will admit to my rose coloured glasses, and I guess I like my stories realistic, but my view of humanity is a little more hopeful. In a nutshell, I am happy to report that the writing combination of Nicci French is not nearly so dark.
Enter this novel - this is a solid, good read. It took me a while to warm up to the main character, but as the plot started to thicken, I enjoyed it more. I was a bit worried about how the ends would get tied up. There are some great twists, and the end is satisfying. I would read more from this series. Reminded me a little bit of the Alex Delaware novels by Johnathon Kellerman that I used to read eons ago because of the psychotherapist elements to the story.
