I love Alafair Burke, so I was surprised I had never read this one. I've heard a few people criticize the ending, and I would agree. I loved the pacing and story of this book, but the ending felt like it had more "telling" rather than "showing." Overall, a good mystery.
#bfcr2 book number 3/7
I can‘t believe that I bailed on an Alafair Burke novel but I found that the story dragged, and I really disliked the characters. Surprising. I‘ve enjoyed her work before.
Full disclosure: I hate novels whose plot is based on a flawed marriage, and this one offered very little else.
I devoured this psychological thriller about a husband accused of raping one of his colleagues, and a wife with secrets of her own. My one criticism: this book either had a chapter too many or one chapter too few... the ending was way too abrupt. Still, well worth a read. #MiaCat #CatsofLitsy
This one was a very fast listen. Kept me interested but I can‘t say it was mind blowing. It changed pace quickly toward the end and had me thinking “did she really just say that?” a few times. Overall I rated it 4 stars. #audible #audiobook #mystery #booknerd #4stars
In the words of Deborah Frances-White “I‘m a feminist but...” I‘m all about what the me too movement stands for but this book was very thought provoking and sheds light on the dark side of the me too movement. The plot was also very captivating I couldn‘t put it down!
The last month of thrillers/mysteries has left me quite underwhelmed, so reading this was a breath of fresh air. In the era of #metoo, the unknowns in this story had me doing some great thinking. While I guessed some of the twists, they didn‘t leave me unsatisfied. This is my first book for this author, and I‘m looking forward to reading more of her.
This one had some unexpected twists, parts that kept me on the edge of my seat, unbelievable storylines at times and parts that were a little boring and made me want to skim. I‘ve realized I don‘t enjoy books with too much lawyer/trial/case details because I always want to skim. Overall it was a so-so for me. Finished it up just in time to start the #Jolabokaflod tradition!
Hubby surprised me with a quick getaway #HelloCrete weather is perfect & resort is lovely ❤️They even have Starbucks “coffee” boxes🙌🏻 Finished this book...sooooo good✅ Thank you @MaggieCarr I really enjoyed this page turner, it‘s very current and well timed for today‘s #MeToo movement & the ultimate HE SAID/SHE SAID. If you‘re looking for a smart thriller/ fun beach read this book is perfect.
Loving this bookso far 💕💕But what does it say on the side of the book?!?!?!
Ok @MaggieCarr I‘m diving in!!! My daughter LOVED it and I‘m in the mood for some good tasty brain candy 🍭🍬🍭 I found my daughter‘s bookmark ( a train stub) which brought me a tiny reminder of “home” ❤️
Angela‘s husband is accused of sexually inappropriate behavior at work and the story just unfolds in a downward spiral from there. Angela is a pretty complex character with an unusual background. This marriage has lots of lies and secrets. The ending was a bit abrupt for me. It seemed the story could have kept going a bit longer, but I get it. #Booked2018 #BeachRead
STACK THIS BOOK!
Elizabeth Smart + Olivia Bensen + he said/she said = the best mystery/thriller I've read in a long time.
So much attention to detail in this book. Bravo to the author, who kept me guessing until the very end. I don't want to spoil it so just be sure to get this title into your TBR pile asap. You'll thank me, I'm sure.
Lots of twists and turns in this domestic thriller.As they say “ripped from the headlines. “ A professor who‘s side projects are making him wealthy,runs afoul of “metoo” accusers,with a wife who thought her secret painful past would stay buried.I figured out plot twist before the end.A pageturner I enjoyed but wonder about the shelf-life of a book so rooted in the now.
This book was definitely and interesting read. I feel like the plot was a bit anticlimactic. I thought who Angela was, was a bit deeper than expected but I was pleased with the effort put into the masterminding, still I enjoyed the book and it was a page-turner. I'd recommend it as a Saturday read.
