    • To me, this book did not live up to the hype. The main part of the book describes the lives of "two women". There was nothing particularly interesting about the "first wife" or the "new wife". For all intents and purposes, the first wife's (apparent) fascination with the new wife was anything you might see in real life, just a little bit dramatic.That went on for far too long before the "reveal" , which turned the book into an even more predictable narrative about an overly controlling and abusive husband (that's not the reveal, it's something else). After slogging through the majority part of the book where the first wife appeared to be semi-stalking the second wife, I expected something a lot more interesting than the supposed "twist" that has been teased in the summaries. I did finish the entire book, but only because having read it 2/3 of the way though, I just wanted to see the husband get his due... and even THAT was less than satisfying.
    • I loved this one! I've been looking for a page turner with lots of twists that would keep my interest, and this book was exactly what I was looking for. I thought the author did a great job of combining a fluid writing style and intriguing characters with a plot that held my interest until the very last page. I wouldn't characterize this as a thriller, but definitely was exciting, unpredictable, and hard to put down.
    • First, it must be said that this book is not “Gone Girl” and the comparison mentioned on the book jacket is utterly ludicrous. This book is not written so much as it is constructed and orchestrated. It is heavily plot-driven, but the plot is not riveting or absorbing. The intrepid reader keeps turning pages in hopes that the book will gain momentum or that the writing quality will improve, but the promises of the novel never materialize. The characters seem trite, wooden, one-dimensional and Harlequin-romance-inspired. Nellie is flaky, flighty, ditzy and hesitant. It takes her over 200 pages to grow a backbone. Prior to that, she has subsumed her every thought and desire, in an effort to please and placate her wealthy, mercurial husband, whom she decides to get to know better “after” her marriage??? There is no discernible chemistry, compatibility or believable bond between them. Richard is the solicitous (read: controlling) spouse who alternately dotes on, and gradually terrorizes, his often-clueless wife. If the reader can tolerate this drivel, a mystery then ensues amid all the cheesy domestic drama. Conceivably, it is supposed to be a heart-stopping, twisty, page-turner with shocking revelations, but the book misses the mark on so many levels. It is not well-written. None of the characters are particularly likable, save for Samantha and Duke. The reader is told about the characters, but never shown. The characters lack depth and sufficient backstories. The pace moves swiftly enough, but the action is contrived and formulaic. Plot twists at the expense of actual content. This book is light, escapism that tries too hard to be more than it is. It jumps on the psychological thriller bandwagon like so many others, but the true accolades belong solely to its predecessors.
    • Great read. I'm an avid reader and I have read a great many books. This story had me in the first chapter. Felt light, although some of the subject matter was heavy. Can't give anything away, but this was well thought out and very well written. Loved it. I highly recommend it!
    • This book has been in my TBR for so long and few days back, I got it from Amazon. I Was totally looking forward to reading it.So, the story talks about marriage. The hidden and bitter truth of marriage. That does not mean the story is all about the negative sides of marriage. No, it is totally not! This is just a another faucet of marriage, in someone else's story.We meet the characters, Richard, Vanessa (Richard's Ex-Wife) and Nellie his current wife (to be). Richard and Vanessa has been married for, like ten years and they get divorced under a lot of circumstances. Vanessa does not take the divorce in a good way. She becomes a constant intruder between Richard and Nellie, but she had her own reasons.The story is full of plot twists which goes on up and down, like a crazy roller coaster. This has a greater effect on the reader. Which is like this, You settle down by understanding a certain part of the story but, it is not what you think it will be. It turns out to be something totally different. This is the aspect that keeps the reader engaged in the book. Once you start reading it, you are totally into it. The story is that intriguing. You feel that you need to know more.I love almost all the characters, they were well-formed to keep the excitement in the story. I love the narrating style. The story is narrated to the reader from Vanessa's point of view and Nellie's point of view. How each of them face and see their lives, pre and post affects of marriage is well written.My Rating (4/5) ExceptionalThe reason on why I gave 4/5 stars is, that sometimes I got a bit confused with the plot twists. But definitely, it is not a negative point. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read thrillers. This extravagant story filled with love, hatred, and obsession, I feel is a must read.As the synopsis states, Assume nothing and be ready to get into this wonderful Psychological Thriller with magnificent plot twists.
