What a brilliant book. I am annoyed that it took me so long to read this book but with life being so busy right now it couldnt be helped.
This booked had my gripped from page 1. You meet Sarah, a mother of 2, a doting wife that does everything for her family. You would think she has the perfect family and life, a nice house, cars and nice things. Then things turn when sarah gets a phone call from a man with a foreign accent claiming that her husband as put a hit on her to be killed. The man give...more
I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest review. I started this book and immediately was drawn in. I love true crime books and that is exactly what this book reminded me of. Had I read it blindly I would have assumed it was a true crime book. Mike and Sarah Johnson are the all American couple with 2 kids, 2 mortgages (one a rental), a dog, and chickens. Mike is an AF man so they have spent a good deal of time moving around. Sarah is your typical stay at home Mom who believes...more
This is the first book I have read by this author, and I have to say, she is truly a gifted storyteller! This thriller has so many underlying storylines that it keeps you captivated and wanting to know more. You definitely do not know where the story will go, and I enjoy that it was not predictable in the least. Not since Gone Girl or Girl on the Train have I been so hooked on a book. I loved it from start to finish!
Well orchestrated triller with many twists and turns that keeps you guessing until the very last page. It surprised me. I'm an avid CSI and crime drama junkie, but I could not see if coming. A. B. Whelan pulls off the perfect crime (book) - while painting a painfully accurate picture of a decade old marriage, raising kids, personal demons and desire. The book has a bit of Marquez zing to it in a style of the Chronicle of a Death Fortold.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. I absolutely loved and highly recommend this book! Imagine being a happy enough, stay at home mom going about your daily routine when you receive a phone call and find out that not only is your husband cheating on you but he has also hired a hitman to kill you. This is the basic storyline with multiple layers added on. This is one of those books where you want to race to the end because you just have to know how it e...more
Sarah Johnson is a stay-at-home mother of two healthy, beautiful kids. Her husband is good-looking and hard-working. But he wants her dead. At least that's what the hitman on the phone told her, and if she wants to live she has to come up with a counteroffer.
She has 14 days to decide.
I really felt bad for Sarah - what a shock it would be to be put into that situation. Overall the book flowed well, there were lots of twists and turns that'll keep you guessing until the end. Once you start readin...more
