This book kept me guessing, which I love in a thriller. The characters were interesting with a lot of backstory that gave me insight into their thoughts and motivations. I did NOT figure this one out before the end, so I had that *gasp* moment. Looking back, there were definitely clues. I definitely recommend this book, with possible trigger warnings. #Libby #ebook #Kindle

This was somewhere between a soft pick & a so-so for me. I almost DNF ed it after the first few chapters. The characters & the mystery both build really slowly & I didn‘t really get hooked until halfway through. The psychology of the characters is really interesting & is what kept me reading, but they‘re drawn really subtly, almost washed-out, which could have been a stylistic choice, but seemed unnecessary. #Scarathlon2021 #TeamSlaughter +16

#83 of 2021. #littenlisten #thriller

6/23 #internationalwidowsday #juneholidayreads

Three wives and one dead husband. This is a story of fundamentalist Mormons not to be confused with Mormons. There is some good insight into their beliefs in this story. It kept me guessing who did it. I enjoyed it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Bk12 of March & Bk2 of #20in4 is done! And I‘ve hit the 20hr already🙌 This one was a slow burner, I almost gave it up after the first few chapters,then it picked up & hooked me into the story. I‘ve never understood fundamental religion, especially ones that say women are inferior. This gave a bit of insight to that way of thinking. #ReadingWomensChallenge #LitsyAtoZ2021 #LetterQ #Pop21 #CloakDaggerChal #Pageathon #BookishBingo #PennyPerPage #320c

The book dragged in places and would have benefited from being a bit shorter IMO but I liked getting the POV of all the wives. They were an odd bunch and it was easy to see why they had trouble getting along while their husband was alive. I sympathized with each of them at different points and not all at others. I didn't guess the killer ahead ahead of the reveal and I liked the ending. This is between a pick and so- so for me.

I shouldn‘t be starting another book in the middle of the week, but our #LitsyBookClub discussion is this weekend. I‘ve managed to read a few chapters yesterday and today. I‘m intrigued by the idea of three sister wives each accused of murdering their husband.

As a side note, this spinach salad with onions, mandarin oranges, cranberries, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and teriyaki vinaigrette is my current favorite winter salad. #ReadAndEat

rubyslippersreads I don‘t know how I missed this, but it looks great. (The book and the salad. 😊) (edited) 2y

Book 18/150.

Wow! What a wild, crazy thriller which I absolutely loved!! Every time I thought I had figured out who the killer was, there was a plot twist! Amazing writing by #catequinn! I can‘t wait to discuss this in the #litsybookclub later this month!

Daisey Glad to hear it was so good! Looking forward to making time to read this one. 2y
Graciouswarriorprincess @Daisey First all the information about the Mormon community was fascinating and then the plot twists. I hope that you enjoy it! 2y

Okay, color me intrigued! #TBRtemptation

From @GoldsboroBooks :

The only thing the three women had in common was their husband.

And, as of this morning, that they are each accused of his murder.

(Excellent use of pronouns!)

This isn't usually my sort of book but I love a mystery so gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised. This book does deal with some dark themes like abuse and cults. The story is told in chapters by each wife which I really liked as you learn each ones story. Tina was my favourite through the book. The plot is slow but it builds to a brilliant ending with a clever twist. The ending itself is so well done and just how the book should end. 4*
