Red Leaves

Red Leaves - Paullina Simons

I really liked this book, but I waited a long time for the climax which didn't arrive. Which isn't to say that there wasn't suspense, there was, but there was no climax.

 

To me this book was less of a murder mystery, & more of a psychological thriller, because boy do those people have some issues. Kristina & Albert/Nathan the most. Although I'm not sure if it representational of other school with wealthy kids. 

 

I have read a few Paullina Simons books in the past, & I have always found them to be hit or miss. I've never finished one of her books completely engaged & excited to read more of her. But this one did keep me hooked & wondering what would happen next. I found a few continuity issues with the book that bugged me, but overall that wasn't a huge issue. I also think that the book was very well researched. The part that impressed me the most was the talk about body decomposition (gory, I know).

 

Overall, I liked this book & I would recommend it to others, but it isn't my favorite book.
