I give it - 4/5
My review - After watching a few episodes of How To Get Away With Murder I was really in the mood for a thriller and I picked this book up and didn't put it down until I finished it.
This story was so well told and I love how the author writes. I was gripped from the very beginning and I just had to know where the story was going. It makes you think about how far you would go to protect a loved one and it was just so intriguing that I loved it so much.
In this story we follow Alice. One night her husband doesn't come home, then she gets a weird phonecall, then flowers are sent to the house from someone she doesn't know and a womans body is found. Alice starts to doubt her husband, she thinks he's lying but, she knows she has to protect him. He isn't capable of murder, right?
Even though I started guessing I wasn't even close to the right answer at the end. I love how it ended and it just took so many twist and turns it was fantastic.
If you love a good thriller then you will really enjoy this one. It will have you flipping through the pages to find out the truth and to see where the story is going. It was just so good!
