Catch Me When I Fall by Nicci French
WARNING: SPOILERS (read at your own risk)
It was hard to read this novel because I did not like the main character, but after a while the reader will realize we probably don't like her because she's mentally ill (the reason for her ridiculous decision making) but then the book changes narrators and gives you an completely different feel. I would have to say this novel was an "un-even read"... at times I was sucked in but for 70% of the novel I was waiting for it to be over.
I have to say I'm usually a fan of Nicci French because their (they are a husband and wife writing team) writing style flows well, they don't waste too much time with flowery language and don't waste a lot time on things that aren't connected to the plot. Which usually makes a good thriller, but this one was just OKAY. I would recommend Killing My Softly, which is a true page-turner.
