I‘ve been on a roll with these suspenseful, psychological thrillers lately. As a teacher, I often struggle with reading during the school year. I don‘t have time and I‘m too tired. Yet, this book, makes me forget that I am tired. When a book is this good, you make time to read it or you deal with being tired the next day. It is worthwhile for a bit of time to become lost in a book. all I have to say is, wait until you get to Part 2!!!!!

So. I have mixed feelings. I was married to an abusive man, and I experienced many of the things that Richard does in the book. My ex married again, but I was too afraid of him to try to save the girl. Fortunately, she got away from him also, and is now happily remarried. Having said that, I didn‘t find the book super tense or triggering. The first twist came halfway thru; the end of the book was too improbable. So 🤷‍♀️

BarbaraBB It must have been a hard read for you, confronting to say the least. It was a so-so for me too 2w

Day 22 - #TwistyThriller #NamasteNovember

A twisty plot with a scary love triangle and you don't know who to trust as the narrators are unreliable. The characters lack depth and you can not assume anything as you will be proven wrong. The novel is a bit confusing and convoluted in parts and it's not until the epilogue that you finally find out what has been going on. I would recommend this novel to those who love psychological suspense.

Ok so initially it was boring but halfway through it got better. The “twist” I expected however, still a decent read but if you read a lot of thrillers you might know where the ending is headed.

⭐⭐⭐ Different! And in a good way! (Spoiler alert) I far rathered this story of a woman who survived an abusive marriage and tried to warn the woman after her than the psycho ex-wife drama I expected!

Finished this one just in time and loved it!!

Truly when reading this book, do not assume ANYTHING! She thought he was the love of her life, and he would do anything for her. She thought he was truly her prince... until learning what is too good to be true almost always is.

How far will she go to stop another woman from marrying him before it is too late?

This is a tough one to write a summary of because twists just keep coming! Fun read!

I really enjoyed this one. I felt like I was on the edge of my seat for most of the book and had to force myself not to jump ahead - I wanted to know what was going to happen. My last relationship was not a healthy one so on some levels I could definitely empathize with the main character. Probably a bit over the top for those that read this genre frequently but for me it was a fun, suspenseful ride.

Just finished this book - I listened to the audiobook. I gave it 4 stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ because even though it was compelling, I got confused as to which woman was narrating. I had to actually open the book and figure it out. I didn‘t think the twist was surprising enough. Perhaps the epilogue was meant to be a shocker, but I wasn‘t surprised. It certainly gave me lots of hours of reading time this week! Going to exceed my hours for #BFCr3 ! Yay!

Didn‘t really work for me. Started off strong but then after the first twist, the pacing was really inconsistent. Lots of unnecessary description and a subplot that didn‘t really go anywhere. I felt like it was more concerned with being twisty than actually offering a good story. A lot of the “clues” that the main character uses to support her position were pretty weak, and the final twist in the epilogue was completely unnecessary.

Megabooks I thought this book was really lame. 🙄 3mo

I know I said I'm done with crime books, but I picked this up at the secondhand bookshop, mildly curious, and decided to give it a try since I'm looking for light novels. Good thing I did, because this took me out of my reading slump. Fast read too; more than halfway and this is just my 2nd night reading it.

marleed I have to change up my genres. When I read too many of the same genre I start getting nit picking in a way that would be unbecoming if anyone in my real life gave a hoot what I read! 3mo

fleeting @marleed I think I should learn that. Usually I just shift from heavy to light books and so forth, but I never really thought of genre changes! 3mo
fleeting @OnlyYoo I know! At first I was really confused like wait, what? I was reading about just...! And then it gets more twisty. I'm nearing the end and though I just find one thing that felt off, I'm quite liking it. 👌 3mo

This book has a very interesting premise- the wife of a controlling and manipulative husband must come to grips with her past while dealing with a tumultuous present and a murky future. There are a couple of unexpected twists in the plot, and this makes for an interesting read. However, the end tied things up so neatly that the book lost its‘ punch for me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book was a pleasant surprise. A friend gave me this, and I did not know what to expect. It ended up being an engaging story. I have to admit that the twists kept me guessing and they totally got me. I enjoyed not knowing what would come next. I liked this one. It has been a while since I have been kept so off kilter while reading a book.

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 tangled love triangle.
Assume nothing.

Five dinos for this one. Solidly written plot. So many twists you dont see coming. A very relatable main character. I did several double takes as the story unfolded. One of the twists actually had me reaching out to friends who've read the book so I could be like UM I HAVE QUESTIONS. I would definitely recommend!

I actually finished this a couple days ago, but I couldn‘t think of how to rate it. I think it‘s because I once lived a marriage much like the one in the book, and that always kinda throws me when it comes time to write a review. That‘s all I‘m saying because I don‘t want to spoil it for anyone. But I liked this a lot. It was a quick, entertaining read. Definitely an easy weekend or vacation read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Keeping track of this plot was like what!? A lot of twists. I thought I knew what was going on and then it changed. Which I like because sometimes it sucks when you can guess the solution so easily. I finished this off on my 30 min walk today for #bfc and let me just tell y‘all. It‘s too hot to live right now! Time for a cold shower.

5/6 kids in the pool, 1 kid took a run, 1 adult in the hot tub, 1 adult inside reading or napping, 1 adult prepping dinner, and I‘m reading (this book has gotten SO GOOD) - I‘ll be on clean up duty later. It‘s raining, but I‘m under an umbrella and the kids don‘t care. Immediately after this photo was taken, there was a streak of lightning and a clap of thunder. They scattered from the pool like roaches when a light is turned on! SO FUNNY!
