The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D.

The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D. - Nichole Bernier The unfinished work of Elizabeth D has a really pretty cover ,a really interesting title and the blub had me intrigued but unfortunately that’s where my enthusiasm was halted.

"Summer vacation on Great Rock was supposed to be restorative time for Kate who lost her close friend Elizabeth in a sudden accident. But when she inherits a trunk of Elizabeth’s journals they reveal a woman far different from the cheerful wife and mother Kate thought she knew"

I loved the premise for this Novel but I found the story was very flat and after 120 pages I was bored and found my mind wandering. I think the problem with this book for me was the characters, I never really gelled with the characters and found them lifeless.
I also found the story predictable and therefore for me this novel was a struggle.
