I just finished reading “To Die For” by Lisa Gray. Thanks to NetGalley and Amazon Publishing for the advanced copy in return for an honest review.
This novel follows the lives of a real estate company who receives a lucrative offer to find a buyer for a very expensive home in Malibu. Whoever finds a buyer will receive a 1 million dollar commission. All agents are eager to get the commision but one agent in particular, Andi, is the focus of the novel. For some reason her boss wants and expects her to find a buyer and the reader is given tiny hints throughout the novel as to why. The other agents play a supporting role and show how fierce the competition is in the housing market and what agents will do to get the ultimate prize.
Andi is a likeable and mysterious character who has a back story that is slowly told throughout the novel and questions about her and her motivation are explained. The rest of the agents play supportive roles but they are, in my opinion stereotypical side characters who are not very likeable at all. There are a few interesting plot twists, but non that surprised me. The ending managed to tie all the plot lines up and revealed the big mystery to me satisfaction.
I liked the police characters in the book. They provided comic relief and excitement. I didn’t like the lack of depth of the side characters.
I didn’t find this book overwhelmingly good or bad. It was alright. Enough suspense to keep me interested, but easily forgotten.
I liked the premise of the book but the execution could have been better. The characters , like I said before, were too clliche to be intersting in any way.
Thanks for reading.
