    Assume nothing!

    This is a book about a jealous ex-wife Vanessa, a closet drinker who now works at Saks waiting on the women she used to socialize with and obsessing over her ex's fiancee Nellie, a young nursery school teacher. Her obsession borders on stalking and her drinking is about to cost her her job. Nellie is blissfully happy with Richard, a wealthy and handsome hedge fund manager, and is about to give up her life and friends to marry him. For the first third of the book or so I thought it was an okay story about this obsession and stalking but nothing out of the ordinary. It wasn't even all that suspenseful. But since I was given a review copy by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, I thought I had better finish it before ripping it apart. Then came the "Whoa! Wait a minute!" moment. The remainder of the book totally held my attention and kept me reading to find out what other twists the authors had up their sleeves, and there were several. I don't want to spoil the book by revealing more, but keep reading the book. You will love it. The characters, at least the women, were well developed. I could sympathize with Vanessa but I wanted to tell her to get over it already and move on. Nellie was sweet but a little blind not to notice or care how controlling Richard was. Richard may have been handsome and athletic and wealthy but he bordered on Christian Grey in his control of the women (no, not like that! No S&M here. Not even explicit sex). I enjoyed the twists and turns and the narrative jumping back and forth but this may not be everyone's cup of tea. I found this to be a very satisfying read that kept me up finishing it.

    Creepy Intersections

    Intense psychological tale. To manipulate or to be manipulated! All facets of our past mold who we are and how we relate to those close to us. Not sure how to review this one without giving key elements away that could ruin the prose. Richard has an ideal of the perfect wife. Shadows of his past have instilled in him a manipulation and violence that like a spoiled child come to the surface when he does not get his way. Vanessa is his second and ex-wife. Her turmoil and struggle with clouded emotions is the driving force of this work by Greer Hendricks. The truth is hidden but is revealed in a surprise ending. Although the merit of this story was driving it just was not plot driven enough for me. "A copy of this book was provided by St. Martin's Press via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read and my comments here are my honest opinion."

    I can’t believe it didn’t get better

    I had such high hopes for this book based on the reviews and friends who usually share similar taste in books loving it. But it was such an uneventful read with unnecessary, over done twists and muddled character motivations. I read it all the way through and was so utterly disappointed by the ending that it inspired me to write this - my first kobo review ever!
