As a child I read my fair share of “chose your own adventure” books, so when I read the blurb for this story – with the obligatory “don’t read in a linear fashion but make your choices and click the link” disclaimer – I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity. Celeste is the protagonist and while involved in a high-profile murder case she meets three very different men who all show some romantic interest in her. As the reader you make the choices which path Celeste takes to finish out the story.

I have to admit this is a fairly short story but I didn’t find this bothered me much at all. I had a fun time reading the various threads (going back to the start and picking a different choice each time) and while I could understand many people not finding it as satisfying as a proper “linear” story the novelty alone had me really enjoying this book multiple times. The writing is in the first person perspective which I found also helped make it feel as if I were the one in the story and making these decisions. I feel even readers who usually don’t enjoy the first person might enjoy this story because in this case it helps the reader feel as if they’re recalling a story or possibly even living it and actually making the choices, which I found quite fun.

I could see this story appealing to a wide range of readers. The mystery plot wasn’t overly complicated, but I felt it was solidly written and certainly I thought it was well woven through all the various paths the reader could chose to take. I was a little surprised that the mystery unfolded slightly differently for each thread. I can’t decide if I liked this or not. On the one hand it kept me on my toes having to pay close attention to the clues and hints – but on the other hand it made going back after finishing one entire thread and reading a different choice a little disorientating.

While this story is definitely a romantic mystery, I really appreciated how the mystery got solved and there was plenty of time for the relationship between Celeste and the suitor the reader chose to become intimate. In some ways this relationship definitely felt rushed – this really is quite a short story – but I found the various connections believable and relatable. There is only the one consummation scene for each of the three threads and they’re all near the end, but I feel this is a good balance that should have many readers enjoying the conclusions.

Short and fun, this was a great and different read. Readers will likely enjoy the hyperlinks to various sections of the book and I particularly liked how at the end of each thread there was also a link to take you back to the start (so if you’re like me you could start selecting the alternate options!)
