In the Pacific Northwest, detective Lindsay Jackman is investigating the murder of a young journalist found at the bottom of a ravine. Lindsay soon learns that the victim was writing an exposé. Her subject: a charismatic wellness guru who’s pulled millions into her euphoric orbit…

To hear Marnie Spellman tell it, when she was a child, a swarm of bees lifted her off the ground and toward the sunlight, illuming her spiritual connection with nature—an uncanny event on which Marnie built a cosmetics empire and became a legend, a healer, and the queen of holistic health and eternal beauty. In her inner circle is an intimate band of devotees called the Hive. They share Marnie’s secrets of success—including one cloaked in darkness for twenty years.

Determined to uncover the possibly deadly mysteries of the group, Lindsay focuses her investigation on Marnie and the former members of the Hive, who are just as determined to keep Lindsay from their secrets as they are to maintain their status.

My review for If You Tell


REVIEW: 
I forgot to write my thoughts out after reading it.
So writing this now, I've had a moment to reflect.
At first, I wasn't a huge fan. The story had a great premise but it took too long to get there. Once it did, the pace picked up and it got more interesting.
Did I love it? No, but I did think the twists in it were creative and not something I have read before. I appreciated the writing even if the story itself did not turn out to be for me.
I still think lots of people will enjoy this thrill ride!


3/5

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
