The Cousins, by Karen M. McManus

First in a series that I may or may not pursue, The Cousins is about three teenagers who are invited to work at a resort on an island owned by their grandparents. This invitation comes out of the blue because their parents have all been cut off–emotionally and financially–for reasons they say they don’t understand.

Each chapter is told through the viewpoint of a different character. There are twists, turns, and deceptions aplenty as the cousins scramble to understand the long-held secrets in their family.

When I say that I may or may not pursue the rest of the series, it is only because the book felt plodding with an anti-climatic ending. After the labyrinth we are taken through, I think the reader deserves better.

8/10 Stars
