This book had almost nothing to offer. It went back and forth in time between the present and just a few days before the murdered body was discovered. The nuances of a book like this is generally in the way the characters are written and the secrets of the characters who narrate the story. Unfortunately, the characters in this book aren't very well developed, nor are they at all interesting. Katie is bland and over and over laments the hard work she has to do and how difficult and dull her life it. Miranda is constantly pushing and asking questions she shouldn't, often being a total bitch. Heather is a little dull, and her character is often left questioning something. Doug is a military veteran who is at the Lodge because he can't be anywhere else, and he enjoys the solitude it provides. Emma is a young woman who emulates some of the characteristics of another character.
When one character discovers her cheating partner she bounds off and tries to make sense of what is going on. When that character dies I am not upset, I felt they deserved to die. Also, the murderer seemed to be obvious to me from the beginning of the party.
I will admit that when books like this came out (books that reveled in not revealing anything, not even who the body was) it was a little exciting, but now it is overdone and dull. When you don't find out who the body is until almost three quarters from the end of the book, I get frustrated. Also, characters who no one can like is also overdone and dull. Lastly, the fact that we change characters so often is overdone. I don't mind changing points of view, but I'd rather if it were fewer characters.
I won this in a goodreads giveaway, that took too long to get to me. I was disappointed in many things. I can't recommend this book.
