The One You Love - Paul Pilkington
The One You Love is the first novel in the Emma Holden trilogy. This book is free for the kindle. Be warned, this is a British mystery. Emma Holden is an actress. She's been on soaps and has some theater experience. On the night of Emma's hen party, and her fiance Dan's bachelor party, her fiance disappears. Dan's brother is found bludgeoned into unconsciousness in Emma and Dan's apartment. Who attacked the brother and where is Dan? The answer to this mystery, and others, takes what seems like an eternity to unfold. The book was suspenseful, but not in a good way. The ending was anti-climactic at best. I wouldn't read the rest of this trilogy, even if it was free. If you like British mysteries you might like this story. I did finish it, so barely recommended.
