Kind of predictable, not a good as the first two
on February 15, 2017
I liked how this book tied up a few loose ends, but it's hard to accept a character who literally never spoke suddenly taking up so much of the story line. And in this book there are two people like that!
We always knew Janie would have a difficult decision to make, and as others have said this is a bit of a spoiler, but the book leaves you hanging on the consequences of her decision.
One more issue I have, similar to the unbelievability of the two "new" characters, is the passage of time. In the first two books time seemed to move appropriately, weeks and months passing. But in this book she is literally complaining the house is 145 degrees one day, and then one or two days later she's getting goosebumps outside at night. I know Michigan weather fluctuates, but that's just not believable.
As someone else wrote it almost feels like the author wrote it because she knew she had to finish the story, almost like she was in a rush to get on to another story assignment.
