My Review:
Tout est juste dans l’amour et la guerre...

This book started off really slow and I didn't think I was going to like it...also both main characters were such whiny bitches, they got on my last nerve and I hated them both. But then a little more than a third of the way in things started to get wickedly good and so  began a game of cat and mouse...but who's the cat and who's the mouse? And what about all those crocodile tears?

Hell hath no fury…

The twists and turns, the lies and deceptions, are trademarks of a good thriller and this has it in spades. Very few authors draw can me into a book but the suspense, mystery and the psychological mind games were pretty awesome in this one. The author had so many false trails that there was no way I could guess what was really going on. Careful what you wish for because things can go horribly wrong. 

If it sounds suspicious, looks suspicious, and smells suspicious...

This was an absolutely bizarre suspense thriller that kept me guessing, I was going back and forth and back again and then the big twist. This was a slow burner that had me invested towards the end and is a quick read for sure. The characters aren’t particularly likable because they are so devious, but the plot is sure to compel you to keep reading to the surprise ending.

Thank you NetGalley, Alex Day and HarperCollins UK, One More Chapter for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
