Genuine Fraud is the newest book by e. Lockhart. I was counting down the days for this book to come out. I love her books! There are always twists and turns and a big reveal that makes you want to immediately restart the book and read it from start to finish. I finally had the chance to read it non-stop on Thursday and despite knowing I was going to wake up in the 4s for the coffee run, I committed to finishing it! And... I was let down. I still love her, and love her writing, but maybe my expectations were too high?
My rating: 3.5 stars
