You think your life is perfect, but is it?
This is a gripping read from start to finish, at times a little unbelievable but definitely enjoyable, if you look through some of the things that happen, surely that’s what fiction is. I liked the characters they were believable and relatable. I liked that the author didn’t tie all the loose ends, in fact I think it’s quite brave, I find it annoying at times when reading a book and the last chapter is rushed to make sure all the ends are tied in a nice neat little bow.
Ava has what she thinks is a perfect life, her husband Nate of 20 years, a lovely house, 2 daughters, some of her friends are even envious of her life. Until it’s not perfect. Two burglars break into the house one night, and their twelve year old daughter June ends up in a coma, barely alive. Is her life as perfect as she thought it was?
The Detective investigating the burglary is an old flame of Ava’s, they had had a thing in high school, this makes Ava feel both uneasy but also gives her comfort. When investigating though it seems Ava’s life is far from the perfect she believed it to be. They are in great financial difficulties which Nate has not told Ava, this gives him a motive to commit the burglary. But would he hurt their daughter? . The burglars escape and Ava worries that they may come back. Does Ava really know the man she has been married to for the last 20 years?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it hooked me from the beginning, to the end, which is what I like, nothing worse than reading a book and not being engaged in the story. There were several times I thought I had worked the story out, but then something else came along and blew my theory out of the water, there are so many layers to this book it’s like peeling an onion, with so many secrets and lies being revealed as each layer is removed. I’m sure there are readers that won’t like that this goes into some slightly unbelievable territory, but for me it was ok. I still enjoyed it. The plot was tight, the pace was fast, keeping you engaged as the story developed.
At the end there are still secrets left in the dark, and a characters life is in the balance. A truly gripping and fast paced read. A book I couldn’t put Down.
