Borrowed from a colleague

Keyes’ latest was a bit hard-going. It (famously) has a serious subject – domestic violence – and this is handled well, I think. The plot was quite complicated, shifting between really long chunks of different characters’ perspectives, and took a while to get going. Maybe Keyes was trying to shoehorn in too many “issues” as we get another two completely separate themes taking part in the book too (can’t saw which, so as not to spoil it!).

It did have the usual Keyes humour and some laugh-out-loud moments, as well as being well organised – it just didn’t grab me as her books have been doing.
