LABYRINTH OF LIES by IRENE HANNON

*I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to give a positive review.*

Overall, I think this book was a missed opportunity. It had some good points, but it didn’t quite come together for me.

 

I didn’t find the mystery aspect of this book all that interesting. The author writes through the POV of the people involved in the crimes. Therefore, there isn’t much that you as a reader don’t know (with the exception of one twist at the end). This unfortunately eliminated much of the suspense from the book. I was also disappointed that the other students weren’t incorporated into the story. I think that would have added more depth. The only student at the school who is part of the story is Cate’s roommate.

 

I did find the relationship between Cate and Zeke to be the best part of the book. They were written as truly flawed characters and I enjoyed that as it made them more relatable. Cate in particular had a lot of authentic emotions to work through and they both had real obstacles to overcome before they could become a couple.
