I love this book. The writing was kind of strange to me (third person, in present tense. I don‘t think I‘ve read too many books like that), but the story was fantastic.

I really enjoyed this book. I happened across it at my local library and I‘m glad I picked it up. It kept me wanting more and I had no idea who the killer was until the very end. I will definitely be reading other books by this author!

This book was a let down. The plot and storyline had potential but the twists fell flat and were too predictable. I also felt as the the writing itself was...off. Sort of...jumpy, I guess is the best word I can think of. It just didn't flow nicely.

As a thriller this was incredibly disappointing. It was pretty slow but there was just enough to keep me hanging on to the end. The ending was boring (lame) and I feel duped by the marketing. It felt more like women's fiction with elements of suspense thrown in just to appeal to a wider audience. I wish I could get back my wasted time.

Book club selection this month. We all agreed that this wasn't as good as her last book. There was so much going on and a lot left unresolved in the end. Meh. (At least the wine pairing was good!)

Maybe ...if you go into it expecting it to be a character study of the things women go through and how they handle it. #marchintoreading #marchmadness

Meh. I picked this up because it was marketed as suspense. It's more of a women's fiction dealing with infidelity. Not my cup of tea.

Lots of layers to uncover, plus twists & turns that kept me second-guessing my conclusions throughout the book. Told from the POV of 3 women when a car wreck takes the life of Joe: Dorrie (mistress), Karen (wife) & Maggie (investigator) & it looks like it wasn't an accident. My full review w/recipe for Earl Grey Hot Chocolate inspired by the book on blog post (link below). Also, I got an extra HB copy I'm giving away on the post-stop by to enter!

Our heroine decides to make a run for it... and I'm wondering how much longer can I read at my desk going unnoticed? 📚 Anyone reading a good #thriller these days?

Violet1 I read the ''The Truth on case Harry Quebert '' by Joel Dicker. But I delete. Because I don't touched. The thriller I don't like, certainly. 5y
Donna_sBookMinute That's why I like to listen to audiobooks at my desk. But when a co-worker (or my boss) says something to me, they are very aware of the fact that they're interrupting me. I'm trying to do better. LOL!! 5y
MyNamesParadise Watching Edie is the best psychological thriller I've ever read 5y

RadicalReader Love being able to read and with books being able to sit flat on the desk people who are readers remain generally unnoticed and for the times we don't simply state " my invisibility cloak is in the shop for repair" 5y

This book! I had so many thoughts while listening to this! The characters are very well-developed, and the plot is nicely woven. Twisty, but not unpredictable. I might have preferred the ending with a few more loose ends, especially with these leading ladies! You can't wrap up that much crazy.

Just finished this book and ultimately I didn't care about two of the women, and could only muster mild interest and enthusiasm for Maggie. Kind of a jumbled mess of genres. And when the small twist arrived, I still didn't care because I didn't connect with the characters.
