my review about this books

hoenestly i enjoy read this book, however since i read alot of crime n mystery novel i find out that the plot for this novel is not twisted.there is no "wow" in it. besides that you can guess the killer when you read half of the books.

this is the first attempt by elly griffiths to write a mystery novel. i really proud of her becouse she challenged herself to write a different genre and came out from her comfort zone,  im looking forward for elly griffith next novel. i hope there is sequel for crossing places becouse im dying to know what really happened between ruth and harry..sorry for the spoiler..hehe..

when read the novel im totally fall in love with nortfolk is one of my places to visit before i die. and i also want to see the see the "seahenge"...thanks to elly because she describe the nortfolk so beautifull...before this i didnlt know if nortfolk is existed..haha..
