Second Life

Kate is murdered. Her big sister Julia who has been taking care of her since she was little is devastated. On her search for the killer of her sister she gets involved with online dating. Trying to hide her search, from her husband who think she is not cooping, juggling two different lives might get her into bigger trouble than she signed up for.

I am so angry!!! Thinking Julia should know what the world looks like with her past I cannot believe she can be so naive. I cannot tell to much but her decisions where often based on weakness, shame and hoping she could simply forget by neglect. Very disturbing!!
The story is a lot. Though the build up is done great and everything fall into place at the end the amount of information is overwhelming at points. It ruined the puzzling along a bit. Still there are a few to many coincidences and it is possible to guess the outcome early on.
Character wise I was disturbed by both Julia and Hugh. they are both weak and negligent and I was hoping they would wake up in time to do something about the serious problems that entered their lives but they did not. True it would have ruined most of the story if they did but now I was really annoyed. Lukas is a totally different character and a clear psychopath. not likeable but really strong.
Overall the story kept me reading curious how it all would end.

I aslo felt angry with Julia a couple of times, but in the end the book kept me hooked, because I wasn't expected that end!
