HOLY CANNOLI. First of all, this one’s on Hoopla, and the narration is wonderful. Next, I did not see that one coming! This book is full of plot twists that will keep you guessing and changing your mind. To hold your interest and keep you on your toes the entire time, as a debut author, I think is really impressive.
Is this realistic? No. A wife defending her husband would not happen. Do I care? Not a bit.
I binged this one in a day, and can say it’s one of my favorite thrillers I read in 2020. 5 stars for me.
