When Nora moves into the only house nearby, Suzi is delighted to have a friend. So much so that she’s almost tempted to tell Nora her terrible secret. But there’s more to Nora than meets the eye. It’s impossible—does she already know what Suzi did? Meanwhile, Elle spends her days in her perfect home, fixated on keeping up appearances. But when her husband betrays her, it unravels a secret going all the way back to her childhood. She’ll do whatever it takes to hold on to him, even if that means murder. After all, she’s done it before…
I absolutely love books like this. I love when we get multiple perspectives on a story and we certainly got that here. Part 1 of the book introduced us to the story. I was engrossed in the characters immediately and couldn’t put the book down. I was glad that they clarified the story of one of them at the end of Part 1 because I had already figured out what was happening there and I think if it had been dragged out I would have been annoyed at the lack of a twist concerning that part of the story. I couldn’t wait to see how things turned out for each character. I felt really connected with them and I wanted them to have a good ending. I thought the conclusion to the story was good and there wasn’t really anything left unsolved. I absolutely loved it but I would have liked one big twist in there somewhere. That’s it though, I loved everything else. Would highly recommend this book and can’t wait to read more from this author.
