About the Book:
Have you ever wanted to kill your best friend? Anna was the perfect wife. Perfect mother. Perfect woman. And now she's dead. Leaving behind her husband, David, and two young children their lives will never be the same. But Vicky will make sure life goes on. These two women have been best friends forever, a lifetime of secrets lies between them and now Vicky is ready to step up into Anna’s perfect shoes. But not everything is as it seems and as David begins to question Vicky’s motives for walking in his life things might just get a little murderous. The question on everyone’s lips is, who killed Anna? And what actually happened on the night she died?
While this book had an interesting premise, it failed in the execution. I found this to be an overly melodramatic story that required the reader to get on board with its odd plot choices without providing the necessary character or plot development to back it up. I actually had a hard time keeping track of the peripheral characters and found the ending to be a bit implausible.
The cast of characters were a decidedly lackluster bunch whom are kept at an arm's length from the reader and desperately needed an injection of personality. When the big twist finally happens, it felt forced and was ridiculous to the point of being implausible. The best I can say is that I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either, hence the 2.5 stars.
Thank you NetGalley, Dawn Goodwin and Aria for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
