DNF at 36%. Not rated.

Set in NYC and filled with characters who need serious help. The ex-wife needs to go to AA, find a good therapist, and get on with her life. The fiancee needs a healthy dose of self-confidence and self-esteem. The ex-husband/fiancé needs to be put in his place with his control issues. I didn’t read enough to find out how screwed up the sister is, but I’ll bet her problem is hard to spell.

The only semi-normal one is the ex-wife’s aunt; and her role is minor.

If you need a reason to avoid the soul-sucking abyss that is NYC, this book provides plenty of examples.

This book is 110% worth the hype that it got around its release.

I only really started getting into thrillers this year, and I have been getting a lot of recommendations from Kayla from @booksandlala on YouTube and bookstagram. So far, everything that she has loved I have also enjoyed, so I was excited to pick this up when I found it at my local second-hand bookstore. And, oh wow. This is an almost perfect thriller to me!

The book follows an ex-wife who is obsessed with her ex-husband and his new fiancee. Or does it? Never expect that you know what is happening in the book. Never expect that you know who the characters are or what their true intentions are. Every new section of the book flipped things and brought the whole story into a new perspective that made the book better each time. The writing style is also very clean and flows nicely and never gives too much away.

I would have given this 5 stars, but I thought the ending was a little unnecessary. In my opinion, it would have been better if there wasn't the tie-in from the beginning of the book and the MC's college story. But if you're thinking of picking this book up, do it!!!

My Review: Plenty of plot twists but they never seemed to lead anywhere. Not as "twisty" as Gone Girl. ( )

This book has two authors. And indeed, it reads like a book written by two people. A largely predictable thriller that somehow has way too many detailed events, I can imagine the conversations "Oh! And then she can reveal XXX!" "Ooooh yes! And then YYYY!". Over and over, with each addition just making the story crazier and sillier. And nearly all of the story happened in the past. The actual present in the book is not very exciting.

That said, if you like to read lots of these kinds of thrillers, you may like it. It was recommended to me by the person who did my last blood draw. She loved it!

Narration was fine. ( )

I went into this not quite knowing what to expect. I was looking for more of a taut thriller, which this isn't, but that doesn't mean it was bad. It's more of a domestic thriller (the thrills beginning only in the second section of the book as we finally learn some backstory). It has a few different twists for one novel, but the most prominent one is the realization of who's narrating and when.

Overall, I enjoyed this book, even if at times the character motivations seemed to change between sections. It's still getting a place on my shelf. ( )
