    • It is a decent book but as I read on I couldn’t shake off the shadows of ‘The Girl on the train’ and ‘Gone Girl’, which both did a good job in the twists they promised. Not this book.There were so many questions I have after reading the book. First, Vanessa had planned for Emma to take her place. She had planned for Richard to leave her but in Part 1 of the story, it was as though she was depressed because her husband left her. She was drunk all the time (sounds familiar?). She was clearly upset. So why was she upset and depressed when she finally got her abusive husband to leave her as she had planned?Then came Part 2 where she became the heroine in the story, trying to save Emma from marrying Richard. She suddenly sobered up and was determined. The sudden change in character just wasn’t working out for me.Then there is Maureen. She obviously had a bigger role in the story. The authors hinted it but it wasn’t developed. They just left it hanging because it is coming towards the end of the book.The twist that was promised? Well it didn’t deliver for me. It was obvious that Richard was the one with the problem and the drinking problem that Vanessa had was screaming ‘The Girl on the Train’ at me. It would have been a real twist if Maureen was behind it all along.As I’ve said earlier, this is a decent book but with 2 great similar thrillers as predecessors, this book paled in comparison. It didn’t give me the twist I was expecting.I’m not sure what constitutes a good book. One that has too many questions left hanging to elicit more discussions or one that has a well thought out and executed storyline.
    • 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.
    • This is an escapist novel, with a mysterious tone which largely fails to captivate. The characters lacked depth, & a hinted nefarious act fails to materialize. The plot was repetitive, & the characters were stereotyped. If a reader wants a novel to,pass time, this might do,the trick, but it lacked "staying power," & the surprise ending seemed trite & motionless.
    • Much less engrossing and fun to read compared to books like Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train. The story was not compelling and there was little suspense. The chapters early on alternate between 1st person and third person in order to to unnecessarily confuse the reader. Revelations throughout and especially at the end were underwhelming and seemed forced. Characters were 2 dimensional at best (is she a victim or just paranoid?; is he a wonderful husband or abusive?). Information is withheld throughout in order to create interest but ends up being frustrating to the reader. In the end, it was mostly forgettable and not a book I would recommend.
