  • Fast, easy read

    It is one of those books I find hard to review. It was a fast read with a good storyline but it lacked some substance for me. Some parts were very slow and other parts felt rushed. Louise has it all. The perfect husband and marriage (or so it seems to outsiders); the perfect(spotless) home that everyone is envious of and the 2.5 children. Getting to this point in her life was not easy. It took a lot of hard work and reinventing of herself. Then she gets the news that her husband died in a fire at work. PC Becca Holt is dissatisfied with her life and job. She gets to deliver the news of Patrick's death but something doesn't feel right about Louise's reaction and she is like a dog with a bone. She would do whatever she can; legal or not; to prove her instincts are right. I think the story has a lot of potential but I felt a bit let down. There is also not a lot of action in the book. Some people dont like books that's too gory so I think there will be people who enjoy this book. It is more of a mystery family drama.

  • the final 10% was really good

    Louise Bridges has the perfect life, by all outward appearances. She has a loving husband, 2 beautiful children, a nice home. She spends her days being the perfect wife and mother, and loves it. Then one day the police arrive and notify her that there was a fire at her husband's place of business and her husband is dead. One of the detectives didn't think Louise showed the appropriate reaction for a new widow and becomes convinced that Louise had something to do with her husband's death. When I first read what this book was about, I thought it sounded like it would be a really good suspense/thriller book. I really wanted to like it. But I did not like the writing style at all. I felt it was too choppy, and I thought the chapters were often too short to really get into the story since the chapters were told in alternating parts by Louise (before she and Patrick were together), Louise (now) and the detective. I didn't find the dective likeable at all, and the parts about Louise before she and Patrick were together (and there was a lot of that) was mainly her gushing about how wonderful he was and how unworthy she was of him and how she didn't think she would ever get him to notice her. I will say, the final 10% or so of the book got really good. So I did really enjoy that part of the book.

  • Good premise, didnt like though

    The blurb on the back drew my interest. However, it only took a few short chapters for me to lose interest in all the obsession that took place. I skimmed the rest of the book, just to know how it ended. I wasn’t a fan, unfortunately. So much promise.

  • The title gets your attention!

    I didn’t enjoy the author’s style of writing! I felt that it was overly descriptive of the characters thoughts and feelings! I would not read any of that authors books in the future!
