But this quaint, little town is so welcoming and friendly. Her friends from London belittle their new friends, it's really creepy at night and Karen feels like she's being watched and followed. The suspense in this novel was lacking. I think it could have had a little more depth. Three group gatherings does not make a romance. View all my reviews
