Slow stare, almost gave up but glad I continued. Very good book but, a little surprised with the ending.

This one is a twisty slow burn and I couldn't stop reading it. I really liked how the story was told via alternating points of view. The characters felt real and I grew very invested in the outcome of the story.

trite; possibly a good story in a better writer's hands? It IS a quick read , but I'd rather have those two days back!

I thought this book would be more "mysterious" than it really was, so I was disappointed in it throughout - even the ending which I'd predicted.

I loved every second of this twisty, turning, could-not-put-it-down tale! There were so many gasp worthy moments that fans of the Husband's Secret would probably delight in. I would love for there to be a book two entirely from Billie's perspective.
