Five friends have a girls’ weekend at a remote vineyard, which results in a missing woman. Did she have an accident or were more sinister forces at work? One of the women decides to have a reunion at the Scenes of the Crime while working on a script about what happened all those years ago. Nothing could possibly go wrong, right?
The book starts well but then quickly gets both confusing and repetitive. There are too many versions of the same events. The script formatted scenes show a modified version of the original girls’ trip. The flashbacks show another version. The present-day scenes vary depending on whose point of view is shown. By the reveal during the book’s conclusion, I really didn’t care which version was correct. Overall, Scenes of the Crime is a confusing mess that I don’t recommend at all. I’m not even sure how it got published. 2 stars.
Thanks to Bantam Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
