I read In theWoods by Tana French some years ago. I loved it. Tana French has a lyrical style and all her stories are set in Irelend/ the United Kingdom. She definitely paints a beautiful picture with her writing - the landscapes and the character sketches.
This story takes place at a prep school for girls. (of course there is a nearby boys school) It is a story about friendship but, ultimately, it is a murder mystery. One of the boys was found murdered on school grounds. Why was he there? And what happened?
The story twists and turns around several possibilities. In the end,this book was well written but I found the outcome to be obvious. Mysteries aren't typically my thing but every once in a while I try one.I read this one based on how much I enjoyed Into the Woods. For me, this was a 3 out of 5. Its hard to tell if that is really this story or just my reticence with mysteries. It is well written so if you enjoy Mysteries, give this one a try.
