Nothing ever came between sisters Alice and Charlie.The Innocents was really a tale of halves for me. The first half of the novel lacked any real interesting plot development whereas the second half was a huge suspense case with lots of twists and turns. In truth, the only thing that really happened in the first half was we were introduced to a few characters. Pretty much the first half was a two star read and the second half was a five star read... so if you're willing to get invested in a book by reading a few boring pages, this book is worth a read.
Their family falling apart never would.
Until they got to Serenity Point.
In a town built on secrets and lies, it’s going to be hard to stay innocent.
The characters in this book were really interesting, and they were probably the best part of the novel. I loved the development we saw in the two sisters, Alice and Charlie, as they get corrupted by the city they live in.
The suspense build-up in this novel was very well written as the plot developed and new secrets are revealed and new questions were being asked. There is one jaw-dropping, "what the hell", moments in it that were truly awesome. The book ends on somewhat of a cliffhanger, so be warned.
Though it was riddled with a few major flaws, overall, The Innocents was a very suspenseful, edgy, mystery.
