This story has great bones, but I found the telling somewhat convoluted and redundant. In my opinion the story was plodding and the characters less than compelling. I have never bailed on a book, but I came close several times on this one. I doubt that I will be reading any other efforts by this author.

rather_be_reading oh no!! i had heard great things on this one 2mo
Come-read-with-me @rather_be_reading The premise of the story is really good. I feel like a traitor saying things that are less than positive. The book just didn‘t grab me. 😕 2mo

Truly enjoyed this one, and it kept me guessing for the most part. A couple of things weren‘t quite resolved for me, but it didn‘t affect my opinion! Thanks for lending it to me, @MommyOfTwo !!

How easy it would have been to let Ed choke to death. To pretend it was an accident...
But it‘s then that I have my idea.

I FINALLY finished this book! I read about 2 books a week usually, this took me over a month! The book should have been halved and it could have been saved. It was just such a chore to struggle though while the ideas actually weren‘t that bad.

Who likes continuously reading about how “fat” the main character is (it says shes a UK size 14, which is a US size 10/12...😑) so much that it spoils the book? If that‘s you, here‘s your new fave.

ThrillerQueen I felt the same way when I read the book. However there is a tiny bit of growth in the book so I stuck it out till the end. It wasn't an awful book overall though. 6mo

My April goals! I did not finish my match goals as I‘ve been in a reading slump thanks the “my husbands wife” which was part of my March reads and I‘m still stuck on it. But hoping to get through these books, and also finish the 2 from March and get back into reading daily!

My friend Kim gave me this book to read and we usually have very similar taste in books, however, this one was not my favorite. I felt that the twists it took weren‘t plausible and the characters weren‘t all that likable. Overall, it was just an eh kind of read for me.

Why did I make myself struggle through this one? I could tell right away I was not enjoying it and by the end I was ready to tear it to bits. ☹ There was just too much thrown in, that made the whole thing seem contrived and forced.

This is an interesting read- well captivating really, but only because it‘s like a mashup of three different Lifetime movies... I actually ended up reading this one because of some work friends and I‘m looking forward to discussing this with them- while not a real scary read, there are definitely some #Nightmare moments! #BlackCatChallenge @Clwojick

Kinda at a loss for words...this book wasn't at all what I expected, not in a bad way. There was one really crazy twist I never saw coming, but the rest felt to me almost too crazy, or unreal. But also insane how the lives of a few people can intertwine so drastically and how the decisions we make affect others...

Not sure how to rate this book. While I enjoyed the story, I felt like there was no true climax. It was a good mystery and there were a few things in that I didn‘t see coming, but I found myself not really caring about some of the “twists.” The characters weren‘t really very good people so the protagonist ended up not really being a true protagonist. I‘ll give it 3.5 stars.

JoScho I felt the same way about this one. 2y

This book was just ok in my opinion. It had an interesting plot, with some good twists but I didn't really care for the writing style. I had a hard time staying interested at various points throughout the book due to the time line writing style and the various narrators. It did have a good ending though.

Lily is new married and starting out as a lawyer with a new client - a convicted murderer who has an appeal. But Lily - while she needs to learn to be a good lawyer - is already very good at only telling the part of the story that she wants you to know.
What a mind trip! Everyone is a liar.
Here are my first four books of 2018 - quite a variety!

SandyW Sounds interesting. 2y

This was a very good read and my first book of 2018! I found a signed copy at Target and had to buy it and I didn't want to put it down! Throughout there were always so many questions, and I found myself constantly awaiting answers. And what a twist at the end! Such a good read definetely looking forward to reading more by Jane Corry!

This book! So I wasn't all that captured by the beginning, thinking that I'd read better psychological thrillers recently, and then all of a sudden there was a twist or revelation every paragraph. It's a craaaazy book filled with horrible, vile people and I was totally into it. 😛

I‘m about 75% of the way through it, and I keep hoping I‘ll find something redeemable. However, I just truly hate all the characters! I‘ll definitely be finishing, since I‘m so close, but I would never recommend this book to anyone. Oh well.

I.... can't say how horrendous this cast of characters was. If you are a fan of soap operas- go for it. But I'm not.

It was like Corry went shopping for cereal and came home with 20 boxes because she couldn't decide which one she wanted. Everything that could happen happened here. Rather than focus on one plot line and develop it well, this was a mess of infidelity, divorce, motherhood, incest, autism, law, murder, art.

I didn't get Lily.
