Was interesting, not quite as "deep" as I anticipated. First I ever read of hers-wouldn't say I'd rush to read more from her. It wasn't depressing, but wasn't upbeat. Just kind of "ho-hum" to me....

Feh. The story was not very gripping and the storytelling was lazy (for example, putting entire chapters in italics to indicate that we are 'going into the mind' of another character who is not the narrator).

Do not recommend this book. The main character is an alcoholic and is not in touch with reality - pent up emotions and troubles. I read for entertainment - this was disturbing.

I saw a lot of The Girl on the Train in this (earlier) book, which is good news for The Girl on the Train, because I was previously considering it a direct rip-off of Gone Girl. Maybe it's more hybrid than I expected.

Back to this one: Single, alcoholic thirty-something female protagonist. Disillusioned with her own life, becomes obsessed with another story, pokes her nose in, takes us hostages with her. It's a relative relief. Protagonist gives us no good reason to like her, offers little hope f

I really liked Rae's first book, Calling Out, and this one is even better! The main character is sympathetic, yet a bit off-kilter in an interesting way. The style is straight-forward and beautiful, with a fascinating plot. I couldn't put it down! I read it in two days. It's a perfect summer book, with just the right balance of character development, insight, and page-turning tension. Highly recommended!

I liked this book. it was a really engaging read. It only took me about two days to read.

The story is interesting and I kind of wondered where the two stories were going to go.

I'd recommend this book if you like mystery and (fiction) murder.

I started out really liking this book because the narrator was so relatable. But then the book started to go to these dark places that I didn't like. The ending was interesting though.

A woman with a troubled family past begins to wonder about a murder's reasons. Her tumble through his and her darkness is amazing.

Really ambitious and at times very interesting. I didn't like it as much as her first, but definitely worth reading!

Harshly funny. An intriguing portrait of two people brought together by the lonely shames they keep from everyone, including themselves.
