Who is Maud Dixon?
Who is Maud Dixon? | Alexandra Andrews
Clever, cunning, and diabolical in the best possible way. Anyone longing for a good old-fashioned thrill need look no further Ann Patchett Celebrated, bestselling, elusive...who is Maud Dixon? Florence Darrow wants to be a writer. Correction: Florence Darrow IS going to be a writer. Fired from her first job in publishing, she jumps at the chance to be assistant to the celebrated Maud Dixon, the anonymous bestselling novelist. The arrangement comes with conditions - high secrecy, living in an isolated house in the countryside. Before long, the two of them are on a research trip to Morocco, to inspire the much-promised second novel. Beach walks, red sunsets and long, whisky-filled evening discussions...win-win, surely? Until Florence wakes up in a hospital, having narrowly survived a car crash. How did it happen - and where is Maud Dixon, who was in the car with her? Florence feels she may have been played, but wait, if Maud is no longer around, maybe Florence can make her mark as a writer after all...

A writer‘s assistant has an opportunity to take over the writer‘s identity and become famous. It did keep me reading to the end, but the story is a little far-fetched

This book was a wild ride!!! It has those short chapters that just fly by and you just have to start another and another. The main characters aren‘t really likeable but they are so real and flawed and you just have to keep reading. I loved this intense and compelling book

It‘s a rare treat to read a whole book in a single day. Though sometimes ridiculous, I was riveted by the twists and turns about an assistant-and-would-be-writer and the famous writer she assists. Loved the Moroccan backdrop as well. Good fun.

This was so entertaining and creepy with awful characters and horrible motives! I loved it. Very quick read with Highsmith vibes and a little a Chris Pavone with a little bit of publishing digs! Great book that I‘m glad I finally read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a fun, twisty story involving an author and an assistant. I went into this not knowing much more than that, which I think was for the best. More than that might spoil the story. The narrator was great!

This was messed up in the best possible way. Two morally corrupt women take their talents to Morocco and craziness ensues. You have to be in the right mood for something like this which I totally was on this long, lazy weekend.

I have mixed feelings about twisty books. I find not knowing what's going on and being actively deceived by an author a little tedious, and the tone of this one is a little self-consciously New York, but overall it was a fun read, and I really did want to find out who Maud Dixon was. Andrews does a good job of making unpleasant characters uncomfortably relatable.

Maud Dixon is the pseudonym of the best-selling author of a popular suspense novel. Florence is Maud‘s live-in personal assistant in an isolated house in rural New York. Maud hopes that a trip to Morocco will solve her writer‘s block. But when Florence wakes up in a Moroccan hospital and Maud is nowhere to be found, Florence believes she has killed her in the car crash. Now all the secret identities and hidden stories will be revealed. 5-stars!

Ah! I'm so behind on reviews. This book was definitely based in character development. The first half of the book was pretty slow & I did get a little tired of reading about how bleak Florence perceived life to be. The second half was faster paced with more action.

While I wouldn't exactly recommend this book, I wouldn't say that I am disappointed or that I didn't like it. It was perfectly predictable & simple & I enjoyed every fun-filled moment.

DNF at 18%.
This book did not live up to the hype and press it has gotten this spring. A bored with her life assistant has a brief affair with an actress‘ husband, and then starts to stalk the family. I skimmed the rest of the book trying to find out the hype behind this book, but gave up. Hard pass.

I thoroughly enjoyed Who is Maud Dixon? It is a smart thriller with plenty of twists to keep you guessing. I also found it fascinating how the characters rationalized their decisions and actions as they all got deeper and deeper into their deceptions. Highly recommend!

A solid plot, with a series of switchbacks that were interesting. Relatively decent character development also. Unfortunately, the 1st half was solely background, creating a too slow build up. The 2nd half was faster paced and significantly better. The overuse of adverbs, and bad ones at that, was distracting and frustrating. Given the topic, an anonymous writer and a want to be author, the editors should have understood their audience better.

I‘m enjoying the plot to this and am having fun trying to guess where it‘s heading. But the overuse of adverbs is making me “suddenly” nauseous. In the last single conversation, “suddenly” appeared three times, along with several other unnecessary adverbs. The structure of the plot is completely chronological also which is an odd choice.

Went an unexpected direction, although you as the reader know this 50 pages before the main character.
I liked this and some parts were really fun, but I hated the ending.
I wouldn‘t put someone off reading this, but I‘m not sure I‘d recommend it. That said, I had fun.

Also, so sorry I‘ve been MIA. I haven‘t been reading or had a lot of energy for Litsy recently. I do miss you all.

Florence is the assistant to the anonymous (but very famous) author Maud Dixon-and she invites Florence to #Morocco on the research trip.The first part of the book is slow and main focus is on Florence and her background, but in the second part,when Helen/Maud Dixon steps in the game, the speed of twist and turns begins to accelerate. Nice paced story, almost all characters are unlikable, story is predictable, but still sooo fun to read. #BookSpin

A psychological thriller that‘s a slow burn. The whole first part could have been cut w/a short introduction to the character instead. It was a slog, but the second we meet Helen it picks up. There are some serious Talented Mr. Ripley vibes, but it works. There are enough twists & turns that the suspense keeps building.

“If you spend your life looking for fairness you‘ll be disappointed. Fairness doesn‘t exist. And if it did, it would be boring.”

4⭐This was a really absorbing, twisty, fun read. There were plenty of surprises and it gripped me from the start. I quite enjoyed this, and it was the first book in a while that really pulled me in that I couldn‘t put down.
It‘s definitely best to go in without knowing too much in advance so that‘s all I‘ll say, but if you want a fun, sharply-written story that will keep you glued to the page, I definitely recommend this one!
