Good, quick suspense novel. Good twists, strong narration. I think the storyline got a bit confusing in some parts because of it going back and forth between the different plots that were so similar. Overall, I liked it!
This book was...weird. I listened on audio and while I liked the book within a book trope, the endings of both stories felt super far-fetched to me. In particular, the end of Beth‘s story didn‘t seem to fit her character. Liza‘s ending felt incredibly off. I enjoyed both narrators but would have likely bailed if reading this in print. It was very head-scratching all the way around. 🤷♀️🤔
Any further #audiowalking will need to be done inside. The sun is out but that wind is wicked! Also, once again, I‘m not sure audiobooks are for me. Even with nothing to distract me (other than making sure I don‘t fall), I still have no idea what‘s happening. 😬😬
Book 2 of #24in48 finished!! Told in alternating chapters, between author Liza & her new book. author Liza is struggling to write her next novel, dealing with hormone treatments in her quest to get pregnant, & helping her lawyer husband deal with the disappearance of his law partner & best friend. The book focuses on Beth & her cheating lawyer husband. When the missing man is found Liza‘s husband is arrested but what if life is mirroring her book?
While I didn‘t find this book to be complete dreck, unfortunately it‘s close. Poorly written and with 2 alternating story lines which are far too similar, it‘s a good idea executed poorly. And one character is depicted in wildly different ways depending upon what seems to be convenient. The only reason I didn‘t bail was that I‘m using this for my MountTBR challenge. Very disappointing.
1. Just taking a break from reading, my hubby in the background looking at the chive most likely 😂
2. Thankfully nothing! Hate the color pink!
3. Love This Is Us, I like comedies too but never was a huge fan of the office, I like Big Bang Theory
4. I‘ve been trying to come up with ideas for my party and all I‘ve come up with are mugs or ornaments.
5. It‘s probably a tie between Small Great Things or The Hearts Invisible Furies

Our #BookClub spread from earlier today over at my bestie's house. Twas delish!
As for the book, we pretty much all agreed that although it was decently written & we enjoyed the 'story within a story ' perspective which provided double the mystery, there was just too much predictability and we felt the ending was weak & lack luster.

Picked up my book club's latest selection which I'm not exactly excited about.... think I might be currently burned out on 'thrillers' lol.
Anyone read this? Hope it's decent!
This was a solid thriller. I'm a sucker for the whole story-within-a-story trope and I love unreliable narrators anyway, but this one was incredibly well done. However, I read way too many thrillers, so it's been awhile since I've managed to find one that surprises me with the ending. But that's on me, and not a negative critique of the writing.
Wow! What a ride! I loved the book-within-a-book concept and the way fact and fiction kept merging and blurring. I figured a lot of it out but not quite all. I do want to reread this soon to look for clues I may have missed in the "novel" chapters of the book. Well written. Fast and fantastic read. 4.5 ⭐s. #spookathon
