I was a bit underwhelmed with this one.
Honey follows Nicole after the car crash that killed her father. Her childhood friend, Honey, makes an appearance back in their childhood town and from there, the rest of the story is one of an obsessive relationship and murder.
It was interesting, and I feel like in maybe a different story I may have really enjoyed the writing, but for me, this one didn’t work. I felt indifferent for the characters and their problems, and so the rest of the story I just pushed my way through.
This review will be a short one because I really don’t have much to say other than how little I became invested into this story. This wasn’t for me, but I think it may be for others. It lured me in with the premise of a thrilling modern noir novel. This genre was new to me, and maybe it just isn’t for me. I’d like to give it another shot in the future, because in theory this book sounds like one I’d like.
Overall, the pacing and complete disinterest in the characters made this one to be a miss for me.
