Falynn’s Vote: 4.5/5 Amber’s Vote: 4/5
Mystery, suspense, and intrigue. Hawkins does a great job of depicting every character from different perspectives and defining the story through little sneak peeks of the unknown. Being a thriller with a lot of plot depth and drama, I did find that this book was a tad depressing; every character had an issue, a secret, or an agenda which also made for the allure of this book. This novel remained true to it’s reviews in that it subtly reminded me of Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn which many platforms had suggested; both sharing similarities of a psychological thriller, leading the reader to be suspicious of every character.
In summary: I enjoyed this novel, however I am a sucker for suspense/thriller/mystery. Additionally, it was a fairly easy read, which I cruised through in a short time, but it did keep me engaged throughout the whole book.
Amber’s Vote: 3.5/5 Falynn’s Vote: 3/5
This was a down-to-earth novel about the everyday problems a person might face. A refreshing change of pace coming off of The Testing series and the crime thrillers I’ve been reading. The main character encounters numerous challenges with his personal and professional life which make him both relatable and likable. You find yourself rooting for him as he navigates the loss of his life, being a single father, and ultimately finding love again.
In summary: A little bit of a slow read, but overall, well written and recommended!
