Predictable and maddening

I'm so disappointed in this book. I enjoyed Before I Go to Sleep, but this book is sort of the same except that the main character, instead of making stupid decisions because she's brain-damaged, makes stupid decisions because she's stupid. She doesn't do a single thing right no matter how many chances she gets, and she seems not understand very basic things about cell phones and social media even though she's only in her 30's. It really surprised me. I read an interview with Val McDermid in which she said that SJ Watson was a fresh new voice, but nothing about this book was fresh or new.
If you're new to crime fiction, you might enjoy this book because you won't have heard it all before. But if you've been reading books like this for a while now, don't bother. You'll feel like an idiot if you stick around waiting for the plot to twist.

Terrible :(

Found the main character infuriating. Her bad decision after bad decision were so frustrating to listen to. Would not recommend.
