"The key to infinite wealth fluttered like a colorful flag at the finish line, so they raced around the breaking point and into the unfair world of cold-blooded murder"

This is a book with thrill, mystery, and a paranormal undertone. Definitely a slow paced murder mystery that will intrigue most readers. The Donnelly family is torn apart, but trying to glue their family back together. They're dysfunctional, but that's what makes them so entertaining. Most people enjoy reading about other people's problems, especially when they are similar to the readers own personal problems.

Everyone in the Donnelly family is looking out for themselves, and no one else. It's especially tense since the family fortune procurable to an undetermined family member. There's affairs, a son with a drug problem, another son who is afraid to admit his sexual preferences, and a daughter who might not even belong. Everyone knows these secrets, but is pretending these issues aren't there, or aren't a problem.

Gage Irving definitely includes an adequate backstory for each character, building them up to be realistic people in your mind as you read along. I really got a sense of who they were, and their personality type.

There are quite a bit of grammar and spelling issues that I found to be a bit distracting, but not enough for me to put the book down. Once I got involved in the Donnelly family issues, I was hooked. It's a slow paced reality tv program. The beginning needs to be a bit more fast paced and introduced the reader to the storyline a bit quicker. Once you get a few chapters in, it's smooth sailing from there.

While reading Thanksgiving, I was unable to determine what is going to happen next, keeping the suspense alive and consistent. I enjoy reading mystery books that keep me guessing, and are hard to predict.

The ending for me didn't close enough chapters in each of the characters lives. I wish in concluded their secrets and their affairs a bit better. It left too many open ended answers for me. Overall though I would still rate this book at a 5/5. ( )
