no Spoiler Book review
When I say this book “wasn’t bad” that’s a raving review, Mystery is maybe 13th on my list of favorite genres. My problem with Mystery is that, I feel like the author asks you to suspend disbelief so hard that you might as well be reading Fantasy, which I much prefer. I read this book for a community book club that I recently joined, and even though it would not have been my first pick, it was fast paced, engaging and the book club members loved it.
The story revolves around three main questions, is the husband dead or alive, did he do what they said he did, and who else is “in on it”? I went back and forth as to whether the husband was alive, just like the author wanted me to, I would not have been surprised by either ending. There are actually two unsavory things that the husband was thought to have done, I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll just say, I had this figured out. The question of who else is involved in a mystery is always so convoluted that I just stick with suspecting everyone, right down to the trendy tattooed librarian, that way, I’m always right. The multi-layered questions in this mystery did succeed in making it a page turner and this title was absolutely enjoyed by the book club members.
If you are a fan of mystery or are selecting a novel for book club, this is a probably a great option for you. You may also enjoy this No Spoiler Book Review of Big Little Lies.
