At 400 pages, this was a longer read for a thriller, but I raced through it. When I started this book, I didn’t read any synopsis because I wanted to see where the story took me. And to be honest, even halfway through I wasn’t sure where the story was going, but it was an addicting page-turner and still took me by surprise.
The tag line for this book and written across the cover is “Some women get everything. Some women get everything they deserve.” And with two reliable narrators of this story, you don’t know who specifically this is referring to. Is it Amber, a young woman with a hidden past whose main goal in life is stealing the husband of her new friend, Daphne? Or is it Daphne, so used to wealth and privilege as a Connecticut socialite?
The second half of the book had elements reminiscent of Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris, filled with tension. There were also parts which reminded me of The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson. So if you enjoyed either of those books, I recommend picking this one up.
I think the story will be more enjoyable if you go in without reading much about it first, which is why I didn’t regurgitate much of the plot here. The night I finished, I still had a third of the book left but refused to sleep until I finished, eager to find out how it ended. I can’t wait to see what this writing duo comes up with next.
My thanks to the publisher for a copy in exchange for an honest review.
