Domestic psychological thriller that was suspenseful, but although evolving quite quickly, it still was slow-paced and a bit flat (too much repetition and cliches). Somehow, mostly all characters were ridiculous and annoying.
The Marriage Lie is a 2017 captivating and consuming domestic thriller that had me hooked from page one. I devoured it in just a few days, check out my full βοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈβοΈ review... https://www.bluestockingreviews.com/post/the-marriage-lie

I just couldn't finish this book. I got to chapter 15 then pretty well threw it across the room. The main character who lost her husband just kept whining about the same thing over and over again., like the author couldn't fill in the blanks, or was trying to make it longer.
To be honest I hated it.
A quiet house when everyone is in bed is the time for reading. I like to sleep but more than that, I like the quiet, and the uninterrupted reading (maybe interrupted by cats but that doesn‘t count). Anyone else like to stay up too late just so they can enjoy the solitude?
I didn't care for it. I wanted to like it, but I don't.
Plot driven. The writing is not going to knock your socks off. Was getting a little bored with repetitive descriptions of how Iris was feeling. Story is pretty decent but takes some time to get into the real mystery. Resolved itself nicely and not completely as expected.
I enjoyed Three Days Missing by @KimberlyBelle so much that I ordered The Marriage Lie. π
It arrived today and I can‘t wait to read it!!
Anyone read this one yet?
Iris‘ husband, Will, is on a plane that crashes into a field killing everyone. Will was supposed to be a passenger on a different plane. As Iris tries to absorb the news, she begins investigating Will‘s lies. I really enjoyed how the story weaved through the lies and I waited in suspense for Iris‘ response. The ending was a big shocker for me.
What a book!!! Just when you think you have things figured out something happens and you have to start figuring it out all over again.... and that ending... there are no words!!!!!
I needed a quick easy read while I was traveling. I didn't love it. It could've ended about 3 chapters earlier, I found myself skimming pages just to get done. I'd give it 3 stars...
Had a bad day? Depressed ? Bored? Sad? Anxious ? Books. they really have saved me .
Remember like 10 minutes ago when I said I wouldn‘t read a thriller other than BOTM until summer 2018. Well, technically, I didn‘t say I wouldn‘t listen to another one....
Now that she‘s past the whining about her husband (ten chapters), I‘m enjoying the mystery.
Just finished this while Hubster was driving us to Jacksonville for date night. Looking forward to some comedy β€οΈβ€οΈ
