      Audience Member Even die hard Leann Rimes would be turned off by this as it offers absolutely nothing Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Such bad acting. Pretty much ruined a great book. Ugh. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member It was ok - liked the book more :) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The story is just normal but I think it's not boring. The story is about finding the killer of the case from 15 years ago. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Surprising ending - it was not who I expected it to be.
