Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Did I enjoy this book: Oh Yeah, I definitely enjoyed it, and so will you. I read the book in one day. I couldn’t put it down. It’s a fascinating mix of murder mystery and psychological thriller. Moretti goes to great lengths to develop her characters in a way that you understand their motivation and don’t hate them for doing hurtful things.
The story has suspense from cover to cover. The pacing is perfect. You don’t reach a point in the book where you want to flip forward to just find out the ending. You keep turning one page at a time to find out what’s next.
Moretti creates a unique story and writes it well. It doesn’t get any better than that.
Would I recommend it: Yes. I think it would make a great book for fans of just about any genre. There’s romance, crime, internal and external conflict, even questions of morality that would have a book group discussing, “What would I do in that situation?”
About the book – from Goodreads: Love ties. Murder binds.
Maggie never felt as though she belonged until Chris Stevens showed her what true happiness meant. Ten years into their marriage, miscarriages and infidelities have scarred them both. Despite their perfect-couple image, Maggie can’t look at Chris with anything but resentment. When a charismatic stranger offers the opportunity for a little harmless flirtation, she jumps into the game.
But charm soon turns to malice, and a deadly split-second decision forces Maggie and Chris onto a dangerous path fraught with secrets, lies, and guilt. With no one else to turn to—no one she dares trust—Maggie will ultimately learn just how binding marital ties can be.
