Meh. There was one bit that surprised me but in general I didn‘t care about the characters and read it kind of half bored. The writing is snappy which makes it a quick read. I don‘t often read thrillers but when I do I want to be invested and surprised and I wasn‘t at all. ⭐️⭐️

BarbaraBB Oops 🙊 I really liked this one - and I don‘t often like thrillers! 4d
readordierachel I felt similarly, but I bailed on it. 2d

Nonononononononoyesnonononono. I couldn‘t read this book before bed and if I did, I had to watch some happy show like Lizzie McGuire (thanks Disney+). So many twists and turns. I hated it, but loved it. It was terrifyingly good. Can‘t wait to discuss with my book club.

At first I did not like this book because I felt the writing was choppy. It just didn‘t flow for me. I don‘t know if the writing got better or I just got so invested, but I really enjoyed this book. In my head I came up with several twists, and only half guessed the correct one. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Up until about the last 80 pages I would have given this book a So-So rating. A “typical” suburban couple adds some mystery and murder to their lives. The wife is a little quirky and the husband willing to go along with her dark impulses; in fact it what holds their relationship together. Throughout the book I kept trying to figure out where it was going, but I did not expect where it wound up. A great unexpected ending that made my jaw drop!

Loved these dark characters, both the narrator and his "lovely" wife Millicent. This couple has some unconventional date nights... A bit slow in the middle, but the last third was a total page turner. I felt like Downing could've played up a couple of things even more than she did, but overall a really engaging thriller. I look forward to more from the author!

I have another book to send to a new home. All I ask is that you send this book on to someone else once you're finished or pick a book from your shelves to pass on.

First to comment below is the lucky winner. 😁

TrishB I try to do this with a lot of the books I get from Litsy friends it‘s a great idea! I‘ve read this one though 👍🏻 4mo
Macker11 Such a great idea! I love this! Do people do this? I think it‘s a savvy way to read new books! 4mo

Addison_Reads @Crazeedi I wasn't a big fan. I thought it was just okay. I didn't really care about any of the characters. It was however a wild ride reading it. Have you read it? 4mo
Addison_Reads @TrishB @Macker11 💚 I was inspired to do this when @Crazeedi sent me a book. I loved getting such a thoughtful gift, and I've tried to pass on books from my own shelves to encourage others to share as well. 4mo
Addison_Reads @Macker11 Would you like this book? I'd be happy to send it to you. 4mo
Macker11 Sure ! I would love to send it along when I am finished ! 4mo
TrishB Exactly 👍🏻 4mo
Addison_Reads @Macker11 just email me your shipping address and I'll get it in the mail this weekend. ☺ caddison97@gmail.com 4mo
Macker11 What is media mail? 4mo
Addison_Reads @Macker11 media mail is an option through the US postal service for reduced shipping cost on media items like books, magazines, even, etc... 4mo
Addison_Reads Sorry... Dvds not even. Silly autocorrect. 4mo
Macker11 Wow! I had no idea ! Good to know 4mo
Crazeedi @Macker11 you have to say at the post office this goes media mail if you send a book or any media, then it's like 2.50 to maybe 4.50 , but mostly I've paid around 3.00 4mo
Crazeedi @Macker11 otherwise they'll try to ship first class or priority which gets expensive 4mo
Crazeedi @Addison_Reads no I have not. I have plenty of reading material, lol 4mo
Macker11 @Crazeedi well that‘s what I was picturing with everyone sending books to each other! I was wondering why not send prime directly After paying for shipping... but that makes sense! Learn something new every day! 4mo
Crazeedi @Macker11 of you have Amazon prime you can ship to someone a new or used book, sure! Some people even give ebooks, theres a way of doing that , I cant remember how right now, someone on here knows. But if I buy a used book or get an ARC or have a book I no longer want I look on people's page where they have their want to read and send or just post and say who wants. I like to send as a surprise 4mo

This book is complex and interesting. Although we are discussing serial killers, it is not gruesome, as the book focuses on the psychology of planning and committed murders while maintaining a family life. My only complaint was that there were a lot of flashbacks that created some confusion about when the narrator was describing.

I am loving this book! I don‘t want it to end. I‘m 3/4 of the way through, I am just realizing that I do not know the Male main characters real name. One of my favorite quotes so far is “ My poker face is terrible, and I lose every hand”. Wrong hobby to have if you don‘t have a good poker face! Maybe it will get him in the end.......
