Synopsis: Jess goes to her brother's apartment and finds him missing. Various clues indicate that foul play may be involved so she starts snooping around to try to solve the mystery of his disappearance.

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

I loved the initial premise of this book but it was such a slow start! We spend a lot of the first part of this book being introduced to the neighbors and they are people who aren't very moral people. We get to see most of their perspectives and learn their stories but I had a hard time enjoying them as they seemed like they were distracting from the main plot of the mystery which is what I was most invested in.

I did like Mimi's back story the most and I love her relationship with her mom even though it is complicated.

Because of all the side tracking of these character stories I struggled to follow the timeline of the novel and how much time had passed from the disappearance to the resolution of the mystery.

The characters were interesting and their stories are important at the end when we find out what happened but it just felt like a really long road to answer what happened to Jess's brother.

Once we do find out where Jess's brother is and what happened to him I didn't particularly like the reveal. I didn't feel as though I had been given enough information to solve the mystery on my own which is something I really like from a mystery.

I did consume this as an audio book and I think that is a great way to experience this book as the one I listened to had an ensemble cast.

I definitely like the Agatha Christie-sequel vibes and style of this book. While I liked that not only were you trying to figure out whodunnit as you read but also whowasitdunto, it made the end feel very rushed. With so many people having motives to kill him, I wish the ending would have been slightly more creative. I was expecting more of a last minute ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ pact so just one killer that we are left to believe may have gotten away with it just leaves a lot to be desired. Still a solid, quick read mystery.… (lisätietoja)

This is the second book I've read by Lucy Foley, and I really love her Agatha Christie-esque style. Foley has a way of telling us the whole story - letting us meet and get to know all of the key players, seeing the world through their eyes, experiencing the event leading up to the big reveal without telling us who has even been murdered. We get to read the book wondering not only whodunnit, but which of these characters won't make it to the end.

Loved this. (Enhanced by a fantastic audio cast)
