Goodnight Beautiful – Published 2020
“Newlyweds Sam Statler and Annie Potter are head over heels, and excited to say good-bye to New York and start a life together in Sam’s sleepy hometown in upstate New York. Or, it turns out, a life where Annie spends most of her time alone while Sam, her therapist husband, works long hours in his downstairs office, tending to the egos of his (mostly female) clientele.
Little does Sam know that through a vent in his ceiling, every word of his sessions can be heard from the room upstairs. The pharmacist’s wife, contemplating a divorce. The well-known painter whose boyfriend doesn’t satisfy her in bed. Who could resist listening? Everything is fine until the French girl in the green mini Cooper shows up, and Sam decides to go to work and not come home, throwing a wrench into Sam and Annie’s happily ever after.” – Goodreads
I don’t entirely know how I feel about this book, but I know that there are a lot of things that unfolded that I didn’t see coming with the audiobook. For one, I assumed one of the narrators was a woman, and I was very wrong. I am not sure if that’s a spoiler, because I don’t know if I was supposed to think that or not…
I don’t have a ton of thoughts, other than I think it was fun to go into this one 100 percent blind, having not read a synopsis. A quick thriller of a read.
