Lots of suspense woven throughout.

I love women's psychological fiction, but too often the plot is obvious. This book is great and kept me guessing until the end. Complex plot, sympathetic characters—couldn't put it down. AL_ALICE

The twists in this book left me breathless. Just when I thought I had reached the last, I discovered I was wrong.

"When you read this book, you will make many assumptions. You will assume you are reading about a jealous ex-wife. You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement - a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love. You will assume you know the anatomy of this tang... Read More »

This was a great read, reminded me a little of "Behind Closed Doors", but not as intense. Lots of twists and good to the last page.

I wanted to love this book but it was an okay read. The first part of the book intrigued me, I was curious to see where it would go. But then the multiple twists at the very end, where you find numerous twists upon twists jammed together felt a little contrived. A few of them were unrealistic too. A so so book.

Assume nothing is right. With all the twists I was still surprized at the end.

I think I enjoyed this one. I read it very quickly, and always wanted to know more about what would happen next. The separate parts of the book involved many plot twists that I did not see coming. However, I found myself questioning whether the number of character twists were necessary. Everyone is unreliable, and although both male and female characters tend to be extremely unlikable much of the time, the women are portrayed in a very negative light in comparison. This being said, I did think that with the exception of the unhealthy relationship aspect that seems to be a main idea within thrillers these days, the connections between characters and unique plot twists were a refreshing change.

The twist at the end upended my assumption about the book. Worth it for that alone. Very "Gone Girl".

Simply could not put down. Author very descriptive so it puts you right in the scene.

Susie recommended Jul 2018
Kind of confusing re who was the present wife, past wife, current girlfriend and, in the end, somewhat predictable.

Solid suspense/thriller. The twist revealed in Part 2 was inventive and surprising. The rest of it felt a little recycled, in the vein of Big Little Lies and other books I've read recently about despicable men and their victimized partners (The Last Mrs. Parrish, for example).

Slow starting but worth the wait!
