The Beauty of the End - Debbie Howells

Noah Calaway fell in love with April Moon when he was fourteen. Now, many years later, after losing touch, April is in a coma at the hospital and she's the lead suspect in a murder. Noah is a former lawyer, no wait, maybe he still is a lawyer now that April may need one. He believes wholeheartedly that she is not capable of murder. He searches for evidence that will prove her innocence.

Then Ella weirdly enters the story. She is beginning to uncover her family's secrets. Secrets that could help solve the murder.

Wow, lots of animals are killed in this book. I definitely don't like that. I didn't care for the writing. The chapters alternate between past and present and sometimes in between. The characters were frustrating with their secrets, their manipulative ways and their drama. Some things were just unbelievable. It wasn't as suspenseful as I thought it would be and by the time the twists came along I wasn't surprised by them because I wasn't anywhere near as invested in the story as I was starting off.
