I liked gone girl- but have picked this up and read the back cover and put it back down several times. Happy I finally dove in. Entertaining and quick read.

marleed Well I discovered TJR with Daisy so I gotta stick with my girl Daisy. But Evelyn is awesome! BTW, my sister and I think Grace Van Dien should play Daisy in the Amazon series. 2mo
