I enjoyed this, I haven't read any Dorothy Koomson for a while but I wasn't disappointed, I kept wanting to turn the page to find out what happens, which is always a good indication I think. A little confusing and disjointed at the start as it is told alternately from Nell's and Macy's point of view
