The whole book is built upon a love story so beautiful and innocent, a forbidden love, an unlikely love. You'd think there's a HEA in there somewhere, right? Or at least a HFN (Happy For Now)? Wrong. At the end of the novel, out of the blue, the heroine's lover drowns and (obviously!) dies and the heroine ends up in a coma, after trying to kill herself. While I get the idea that in some cases authors either choose or have to kill a certain character, I have to wonder why kill a main character? Why write one of those dream-like love stories, just to tear it apart in just a few pages? Yes, I know, there will be a second and a third book in this series, but I'm still trying to reconcile with the fact that Pat died and Mia is in a coma.
Anyway, this is the most surprising plot twist that is still fresh in my head. There have been others, but this is the most recent.
What about you?
