For Better and Worse
For Better and Worse | Margot Hunt
On their first date back in law school, Natalie and Will Clarke bonded over drinks, dinner and whether they could get away with murder. Now married, theyll put the latter to the test when an unchecked danger in their community places their son in jeopardy. Working as a criminal defense attorney, Nat refuses to rely on the broken legal system to keep her family safe. She knows that if you want justiceyou have to get it yourself. Shocked to discover Nats taken matters into her own hands, Will has no choice but to dirty his, also. His family is in way too deep to back down now. Hes just not sure he recognizes the woman he married. Nats always been fiercely protective, but never this ruthless or calculating. With the police poking holes in their airtight plan, what will be the first to fall apart: their scandalous secretor their marriage?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Almost a year later, I finally got around to reading my November 2018 #BOTM pick. I was honestly surprised how quickly I got sucked into the story, which was a pleasant surprise because I didn‘t have high expectations for this book. Overall, I thought the plot and story was great, but I felt that the ending fell kind of flat and was a bit abrupt. In addition, the epilogue didn‘t satisfy me and could have had more to it.

A nicely paced story of a couple willing to do anything to protect their child from the evils of the world. The ending was a surprise - but in retrospect not that shocking. It made sense in terms of how the characters evolved. ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

This book was alright. The suspense kept me reading, wondering if she will get caught or not. I really liked seeing both sides of the story from both points of view, that was really cool. Could have been a little more action, but over all I liked this book. 4/5 stars (:

Great fast paced book! Without giving away too much- its about how much a mother and father are willing to do (or not do) when someone hurts their child. Didnt expect the ending and then the very ending- WHOA! Def. recommend.

Wow this one was so good!! I love Nat and her devious planning. She's one scary person to be deal with! This one kept me reading until the late hours. All I can say is, definitely pick this one up. (Nat should have gotten rid of Will though. You'll understand if you read/or will read it)

Jeannineth I LOVED this one!!!! I thought it was way better than some other hyped books such as The Silent Patient, Miracle Creek, or The Anonymous Girl. 4mo

This sucked me in from the very beginning and kept me reading. That being said, the climax was a serious letdown and not entirely believable. Just ok for me!

On their first date, Nat and Will jokingly discuss how they would commit the perfect murder. That conversation ends up being put to the test when someone threatens their son. The thing is I never felt like there was a major climax in this book or a jaw dropping moment but it still held my attention-I was along for the ride. The pacing was well done and I was invested in the story. Thanks to #Netgalley for the ARC.

This was such a strong start and I was really hooked and then it got to the build up and fell flat. It was just okay for me. I really didn‘t love the ending and it was so disappointing because I was really looking forward to reading this one. It wasn‘t bad - a quick read, but not my favorite.

It took me about 2 weeks to read, because life with toddlers. But that's the fastest I've gotten through a book in quite a while which I'm very proud of.

This was a quick and relatively entertaining read (entertaining as in it kept my attention, but the subject matter is dark). But it was also predictable and quite cliche, and it all wrapped up a bit too neatly. I‘d recommend it as an easy page turner, but it won't leave a lasting impression.

Will and Nat met in college and get married and have one son Charlie. We find out he is molested by the principal of his school. Nat decides she will make sure no other children are hurt by this monster.
This was interesting but a hard subject to read about .

12.1.18 Wow! This book was great. At first I wasn‘t sure if I was going to be able to get into it, it seemed all too cliche. An unhappy marriage with an unexpected turn, but I loved it. I liked the multiple point of views and how even at the end when it felt like everything was settled, Margot Hunt threw another curveball at me. 4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Wait... what? The more I mull this one over the less I like it. The concept is compelling but the jacket gives away WAY too much. Why do publishers choose to give up the goods so early? Little that happens in the first 125 pages is surprising bc you already know. Plus, these supposedly smart characters make SO many comically stupid decisions that it's hard to take seriously. I was entertained for the most part but I doubt I'll recommend this #BOTM

Reviewsbylola And I hate that too. That‘s why I rarely read blurbs as I‘m starting a new book. I definitely read the blurb on this one when it was announced as a selection but literally the only thing I remember about it is that it sounded good. 😆😆 12mo

HOTPock3tt It sucks. I usually DON‘T read the jacket of the book for exactly this reason 😔 I‘ve read too many spoilers there... and you don‘t know which one is going to spoil it for you and which will just give a summary... so now I avoid them altogether... (edited) 12mo
swishandflick @MicheleinPhilly @Reviewsbylola Actually my backlog is getting to be pretty bad too. Something lit a fire under my butt this week though, I've been toying with the idea of cancelling for a bit so I figure I should catch up on some of my picks and see how I feel. 12mo

Natalie and Will met in law school and discussed the perfect way to murder someone on their first date. Years later Natalie takes justice into her own hands, but has to include Will, now her husband, to finish the job.

There are several aspects of the story that didn't ring true, but it is still a page turner. Trigger warning for pedophilia. The topic is given about as soft a treatment as possible, but it's still horrible to think about.
