The story idea was weak, but okay. The twist felt like an afterthought that had to be pieced into the already finished product.
The characters were unlikable. Most characters have at least one redeeming quality and those are the characters you're not supposed to like. I just couldn't care what happened to these people. When the time came for character transformations, they were so unrealistic and unsubstantial, I couldn't really be made to believe that the changes actually happened, let alone stuck long term.
This story and its characters were such a waste of time that when I woke up after nodding off halfway though, I didn't feel I missed enough substance during my three hour nap to warrant backtracking.
I was sorely tempted to return this book.
P.S. Dear author,
I've hardly ever heard the happy birthday song sung in any way OTHER than accapella so how is THAT supposed to be what's mournful about it?
Also, if your epilogue is needed to explain and tie together THAT much of your story, you need another rewrite before publishing.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This was an excellent audio. Made me even look over my shoulder to see who was behind me. The Happy Birthday to You song made my skin crawl. This book was excellent. The ending was such a twist. A must read .
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I wore my Ipod all day just to hear the audiobook. Didn't want any interruptions

Loved this one, kept me guessing all the way through.
I felt empathy for most of the characters, unlike some of the reviewers and I felt the detail was all necessary to the plot, this is a long, involved mystery and I was totally surprised by the big reveal, I had my suspicions (to be honest, I suspected pretty much EVERY character at one point or another) but was taken aback completely when the real murderer took their step forward.
Jorjeana Marie narrates it flawlessly, I could listen to her all day, in fact I did just that.
I would recommend this wholeheartedly to anyone who enjoys crime/mystery thrillers.
