Thank you to NetGalley and Bloomsbury USA Children’s Books for sending me an electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Alice has always been haunted by the women from her husband’s past. As an MP and now a TV personality, George Bell’s reputation as a ladies’ man precedes him. But when Alice falls pregnant, her unease becomes an obsession.And there’s one ex in particular she can’t get out of her head: a beautiful student George dated in his first year, who went missing before they finished university. Ruth.When Alice sees a woman who looks just like Ruth, she can’t shake the feeling that there’s more to her disappearance than George has been telling her. But does she really want to know what her husband has been getting up to behind her back all these years? (Goodreads)
I really enjoyed this book, I read it in basically two night. I’ll be honest I didn’t feel like there was much in the way of plot which is the only reason this isn’t a full 5 star read for me. However, in the character development department this book shines!
Rob and Meagan are two outcasts who f=get paired together on a project. The story is told from each ot their perspectives, which I really enjoyed. I loved these characters, both of them almost equally. Though of the two Rob really pulled at my heart strings. I also felt like this book was more his story than Meagans so that might explain why I felt more connected to him.
I also really enjoyed the side characters, Owen and Sam were often times some much needed comic relief, while also being important pats to the story. As I mentioned this book was more character development than story, and I would have liked to know a little more about Meagan’s story.
Overall, I love this book and would highly recommend it!
Overall Rating: 4.5
