Review: Better Left Buried
Better Left Buried by Belinda Frisch
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received a free copy of Better Left Buried in return for an honest review.
A spirit board, a murder, and a cold case that refuses to stay hidden...
Better Left Buried was a quick and easy read. The pacing was just right and it held my attention throughout but I wouldn't class it as horror, it's more of a mystery/thriller. I was hoping for more of a supernatural/haunting aspect to the plot and was disappointed when it headed in another direction.
I did find it became rather predictable and I had worked out what was going on pretty early in the book. I can't say that I really cared about the characters much either, although I did enjoy their interactions and relationships with each other and how they developed/changed throughout the book.
The blurb makes it sound like a horror but it's not one I would recommend for horror fans.
