APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
When two wives from starkly different London households disappear at the same time, it first seems like a random coincidence. After all, Leigh is a devoted stepmother and Kai leads a glamorous life without children. But DC Clements suspects a hidden connection between the two, and she’s willing to dig deep to find it. Adele Parks’ layered thriller builds tension while moving fluidly between settings and time periods, revisiting how the missing women met their picture-perfect husbands. But as the stakes rise, the writing turns more visceral and the characters’ alternating perspectives begin to expose shocking layers of deception. Unflinching in its focus, Both of You is a twisty domestic noir that’s hard to shake off.
Is still worth the read!
It was good I actually enjoyed it I know there’s a lot of mixed emotions about the ending but I got it! I can say what I’m do agree with is the backstories there so incredible long & frequent which is such a snooze get past those and your in for a good book!!
Hit and Miss
Just Ok. Rattled on unnecessarily at times in my view which was a shame because there were some good bits. Ending was rather silly.
A few errors which made understanding the plot difficult. A lot of waffling and over explaining through the middle. Great storyline but ended too quickly without much explanation
