My review: Hayley really wanted to be a chef, so she gets a job in a restaurant.

The whole thing had a slow start with the interview and branching out into the odds-and-ends of the new job. It was pretty mundane. The writing was okay, but the story was fairly ambiguous. The characters didn’t really reveal much about what was going on, which I guess supported the whole “mystery” theme.

In the interim, Haley was trying to hide from “him.” Who’s “him?” There also seems to be a hunt for a killer or a kidnapper, which resurfaces that air of mystery to the story. Unfortunately, there was such lag that it was hard to be captivated by it. Isn’t something supposed to happen?

There were just a few too many holes in the story for it to make any sense. Overall, this wasn’t what I expected and I couldn’t get into it.

My rating: 2 stars
