I'm really torn on this one, because on one hand I was able to see all the twists coming (see Karen Brissette's review for my similar feelings on this), and it was a long book to feel entirely predictable, but on the other it was still a fun, enjoyable novel and I whole heartedly embraced the inclusion of the black and white movies and Alfred Hitchcock favorites that I grew up on. I felt neutral on the narrator here; she wasn't a long term favorite but she didn't grate on my nerves either. Overall, I would count it a success and I'm floored that this was a debut novel. Eagerly anticipating the author's next work!

Vera (GirlySunglasses) I think I also gave this one 3 stars. It was fun but predictable. I could have been better, but it could have been way worse.

I completely agree Vera!


Joanna Elm Yep! It was a 3-star one for me, too. Interesting since it got so much hype pre-publication. Does anyone think that maybe too much hype is a bad thing?? Builds up very high expectations that can never really be fulfilled!

I think you’ve hit the nail on the head Jo!


Joanna Elm Great minds !!!!!!

Honestly, it was mediocre at best for me. I also don’t feel comfortable promoting this one due to the author’s deceitful behavior, so I would recommend reading The Other Woman by Sandie Jones or The Solent Patient by Alex M.

Lisa I agree with you, Chelsea. The unconscionable behavior of the author makes it almost impossible for me to recommend this novel to anyone. I will definitely be reading the two books you mentioned!
