For today’s upcoming book I chose yet another thriller, I know, shocker! I think the market is hugely inundated with them so it’s tough for me to shy away from the genre, given that it’s one of my favorite genres to read. I will be honest, I read The Other Woman and I wasn’t a fan. It was a good premise and all but oh em gee, the protagonist was the weakest female character EVER. I just couldn’t get behind it but it’s received rave reviews and it was even a Reese Witherspoon Hello Sunshine Book Club pick. So, maybe it’s a “it’s me, not you” thing going on there.
Having said all that, I thought I’d give Sandie Jones another shot. I’m not planning on reading this one until late this month but here’s the synopsis for you!
THE WIFE: For Alice, life has never been better. With her second husband, she has a successful business, two children, and a beautiful house.
HER HUSBAND: Alice knows that life could have been different if her first husband had lived, but Nathan’s arrival into her life gave her back the happiness she craved.
HER BEST FRIEND: Through the ups and downs of life, from celebratory nights out to comforting each other through loss, Alice knows that with her best friend Beth by her side, they can survive anything together. So when Nathan starts acting strangely, Alice turns to Beth for help. But soon, Alice begins to wonder whether her trust has been misplaced . . .
The first mistake could be her last.
Short synopses are always a favorite and right off the start it’s got me intrigued. Domestic thrillers are one of the best sub genres! It’s out 06/11/2019.
