She fell in love the moment she saw Cliffside. She just couldn’t believe her husband had bought their dream home, but nothing stays perfect for long… When tragedy strikes and her husband is killed in a car accident, she finds herself living in the remote clifftop home on her own, and suddenly the glass-fronted house feels more threatening than comforting. And when she discovers footprints leading from the beach to her front door and a bunch of blood-red roses left on her step, she knows she’s not alone anymore.
This one started off so well for me. The first 20% was so mysterious, there was really no clues about what could be going on. I was engrossed from the first page. The strange messages being left for the widow (who’s name is never given to my recollection) are so intriguing and I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. I’ve read reviews stating the first half of the book was boring and the second half was where the story got exciting but for me, it was the opposite. I found the second half so frustrating. For a while I was okay with that because it can be the sign of an excellent book. But after a bit I was just annoyed. The characters were so irritating. The triplets were just rude from the offset and the closer the narrator got to them the more I wanted to shake her! I felt sorry for her throughout the second half but I found the whole story so unrealistic as it went on. The ending was so out there I couldn’t cope. I like a book that I can even slightly imagine happening in real life personally 😂 but it wasn’t a bad book, I just thought the second half went in an unrealistic direction.
