I Could Be You.3 star

Interesting story line. I don’t like when a book goes back and forth from past to present . It makes the story drag. But otherwise it was worth reading. Not one of my favorites.35


Interestingplot2 star

Characters and plot frequently became lost and repetitive Bones of a good story but execution is flawed25


Captivating!5 star

I read a lot of mysteries and thrillers and none have held me like this one. I usually don’t prefer British settings, but this one is written differently than others. The author kept the twists and turns coming and I couldn’t piece the solution together as easily or quickly as I usually do. There are a few grammatical errors, but no sexual content and minimal language.55
