My Rating: 2 Stars
This one unfortunately didn’t work for me as well as I’d hoped. I found the premise really interesting, but ultimately found this one boring.
Thoughts while listening -
- requires way too much suspension of disbelief (this is a real issue for me with books and film/television) to be viable.
- just how naive can women characters be written? ffs.
- this was too where exactly is this going, and wtf is going on for me, and not in a good way.
As I’ve shared previously, finding a domestic thriller that I enjoy and find realistically possible is notoriously difficult.
Therefore, a reminder to take my opinion with a grain of salt - most of the reviews for this were great.
Thank you to Macmillan Audio and NetGalley for the early audiobook.
