Olivay
Olivay | Deborah Reed
1 post | 1 read
We don t believe that our lives can change in an instant until they do. Olivay, widowed for a year and sleepwalking through life, meets Henry by chance. She takes him to her Los Angeles loft, thinking it will just be for the night. But the following morning, bombs detonate across the city; mayhem and carnage fill the streets; and her loft is covered in broken glass and her own blood. Henry is skittish, solicitous, and strangely distracted. Who is this man she s marooned with as the city goes on lockdown? Why is she catching him in lie after lie? Is he somehow connected to her husband s death and the terrorist attacks outside? With eloquent and suspenseful prose, "Olivay" explores the wreckage of loss and the collision of grief, desire, and terror in its aftermath. As the characters get pushed outside their comfort zones, forced to walk the thin line between destruction and salvation, "Olivay" keeps readers guessing what will become of Olivay and Henry until the very end."

Mehso-so

The cover is probably my favorite part of this novel 😂 It's a decent thriller -- the premise was interesting but it was definitely lacking an enticing delivery. The main character was kind of obnoxious, and the mystery wasn't that mysterious. I don't know, despite all its shortcomings, it's not too bad.
