What a great read! It flows so effortlessly. Wonderful plot and characters, wicked twist. I could not put this book down.

If I could give this book zero stars, I would.

It has no redeeming qualities. None. Zip. Zero.

Poorly drawn characters - all one dimensional. The good are sickly sweet good. The bad, are like cartoon baddies. I tried to finish this book, and all I could do was gag.

Don't waste any part of your life on this book, especially as there are so many far better books to read.

So this was such a fun read! It will probably be a short review, so that I don't ruin any surprises!

It's fun, to me, to read about the lives of the 1%. The clothing, the houses, the nannies, and the special clubs and societies that make up their daily lives. Amber, the main character, envies these lives and has devised a plan to be the next and last Mrs Parrish. She is a sociopath and has no morals what so ever. The lengths she went to to secure her spot was jaw dropping.

I loved that there were only 3 main characters- home wrecker, wife and husband. I didn't get confused about who was who and were they belonged in the story. The story flows effortlessly and kept me engaged. Plot twists left me surprised and wondering how exactly this story would end. I was not disappointed!

I can't say this was a bad book, but a large portion of it was disgusting. Stories that feature women being raped, beaten, and generally tortured are "in" these days. It's sick and sad that female authors are usually the ones pumping that filth into the pages of books. They are also the ones constantly demeaning their female characters if they aren't thin enough or young enough.

4.5 enthusiastic stars for this debut thriller from a dynamic writing team.

"Sometimes you get what you wish for and sometimes you get what you deserve." The story of Amber and Daphne shows us the many faceted truths of this statement. Unlike Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train, you have a character you can root for. You also get a vivid inside look at what it is like to live with a sociopath and the plot twists keep on coming. Too thrilling to put down. You will find yourself looking for excuses to read this book.
