3 out of 5 stars
Thank you so much to St. Martins Press and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
I wanted to like this book so much more than I did. I devoured her book Not That I Could Tell so I had high expectations for this book. I thought it was going to be a great thriller but turned out to be more of a drama book.
This book is about Liza and Molly who have been best friends forever but now live in different states. They try to catch up as much as possible and one night while they’re on Skype Liza sees a masked man in Molly’s house while she’s upstairs with the children. She calls the police but when she confronts Molly about it, Molly blows it off and pretends that nothing happened. Liza can’t figure out why her best friend is acting like nothing happened and she starts to wonder what secrets her friend is keeping from her.
The beginning was so intriguing for me and instantly hooked me and then the further I got into it the more bleh it became. I feel like the book peaked at the beginning and then nothing but drama for the rest of it. I was so confused because it started out as a good thriller at the beginning and then the genres started jumping around so I got a little lost. I’m not sure how this was categorized as a suspense thriller because it honestly was anything but. I’m only giving it three stars because I do love the author and her writing style and this book won’t stop me from reading anything else by her but this was a big flop for me.
