Under the Harrow/ Flynn Berry / 240 pgs

This is a mystery/suspense novel set in England. Nora is on her way to visit her sister, who lives in a countryside village. She arrives to discover her sister stabbed to death. There is also a disturbing image of her sister's dog, which was also killed. The story is told completely from Nora's point of view, which I found troubling. While she's supposed to be in her late twenties, Nora read very child-like and immature
to me and I couldn't really relate to her. She makes lots of very poor choices. She and the rest of the characters seemed to be only sketched out. They lack depth, which I think results from the book being too short at only 240 pages. The ending felt a bit abrupt as well.
