Book Review: It All Falls Down

I recently read the book “It All Falls Down and wanted to give you my book review.

In Book Review: It All Falls Down, a novel by Sheena Kamal

Book Summary:

Nora Watts is searching for the truth about her late father that takes her from her home in Canada to Detroit.

Nora grew up only knowing her father, as her mother had left them when she was a child. Then her beloved father killed himself, leaving she and her sister alone.

One day she has an encounter with a veteran who says he knew her father. He tells her things that make her want to look into her father’s death as perhaps not a suicide after all.

Nora heads to Detroit where her father Sam grew up, having been adopted from where he was born in Canada.

Trouble seems to follow Nora wherever she goes. Someone is following her. Someone tries to kill her multiple times.

But she is determined to learn more about her father. Though it leads her to scary places and strangers following her and finding out more than she ever expected.

My Review:

I have to say I was not that impressed with this book. At first it looked rather promising.

Though I finished the book, I felt that the plot moved too slow for this type of book.

However, I admire any writer who can finish writing a book. So for that reason alone I wanted to finish reading it.
