I received an ARC of this book in a giveaway and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you Leigh Lennon!
This book took me by surprise. It makes you reflect on your own moral compass, and who you trust in this story. You know who is "inherently good" and "inherently bad" but it's not so cut and dry for some characters, and I liked that.
Being French-Canadian like one of the main characters in the book, I would have liked the character to portray more of his culture and language. Maybe speak a bit of French, or talk about where in Québec he was from, especially since it is said he still has remnants of an accent.
Some assumptions that Canadians wouldn't understand or use certain American expressions was not correct. But I AM happy that these places were actually mentioned in a book. I can count on my hand the number of times I've seen the place "Québec" in a book. Twice. So thank you Leigh Lennon, that was appreciated.
I did not care for the constant back and forth in time with the many POVs. It was hard to follow, and by 1/4 of the way through, my brain was still trying to figure stuff out.
I really enjoyed the ending of this book. I thought it was appropriate and well done.
