"An intriguing cast of characters and an untimely death set the stage for a chick-lit, murder mystery in Rouda's (Here, Home, Hope, 2011) latest novel. A light, engaging read that keeps readers guessing until the end." -- KIRKUS Reviews

Laura Mercer is the News anchor for Channel 5. She’s a driven-work-oriented woman with dreams of making it big. Janet Jones is a real estate agent. She’s a career-driven woman who devoted her time training her husband making them the best real estate team. Angie Brown is a waitress and a real estate assistant. She’s the town w-hore ruining marriages. Madeline Wilson is an editor for the Journal. She’s a working-class woman who writes in the society column spreading gossip. Ellen Anderson is a married childless housewife. She’s the desirable kept young woman that is alluring to men.
I know I’m suppose to be following the lives of three women, yet I haven’t determined which of the female characters introduced thus far I’m suppose to focus on. The story dives deep into each of these characters lives bombarding the reader with information. I’m waiting for these characters to get settled into their individual roles before processing all the information. Its taking me longer than I thought to sort thru the details, but when I finally organized my thoughts I found the subtle hints of suspicion quite fascinating.
I liked the dark humor in her diabolical characters. Kaira kept me guessing the entire time in this who-dun-it story.
Although, I struggled in the beginning with Kaira introducing a wide range of characters I did enjoy trying to solve the murder mystery. I had to train my brain to stop focusing on the three characters and just accept the information given. It was a well written story. It was easy to read even with its complexity of character introductions.
This was her second published book. While it wasn’t my favorite of hers I’m not yet done exploring her backlist of books. I just discovered her books.
The characters were all shallow and vapid women which led to no sympathy or understanding. Their actions led to the obvious reactions and consequences.
This book just truly never grabbed my attention and demanded I continue reading, yet I hate leaving a book unfinished. Especially one I've purchased so I slogged thru and finally finished.
And that, my fellow readers, was the very best part of this trainwreck of a tale.
This book was okay. I found the dialogue unrealistic and sometimes odd. For example, repetition of the person's name while they were talking to that person. I maybe say my husband's name once a day, but the people in the book were like: "Hey, Michael. Why are you doing this, Michael. Michael, I can't believe you did that." Kind of bothered me. Also, I feel like I spent way too much time in each character's head so that the plot was revealed fairly easily. The author pulled us back from Ellen's inner thoughts pretty early on, so that was a clue that something was different with her. I feel that if she had taken us out of the character's heads it might have been a better book with more guessing as to their motives.
It took a long time to get through this book and I was a little disappointed at the end. I did like the flashback to the past though towards the end it felt confusing and like the author was mentally done with this book and just shut it down. We see Angie planning to go to Chicago, we see a flash of Laura beginning another odd relationship to get ahead, we see Dixon writing an ominous "I know whodunnit" letter but no resolution. The book just ends.
Well, I never expected a serial killer. What a messed up chick. You had to feel sorry for her, of course. She'd had such a horrendous childhood.
However, she had a great life going for her and was too insecure to appreciate it. Not that she deserved how the creeps treated her. But still... she could have just moved on rather than kill them. But broken people don't solve their problems in conventional ways.
Definitely a well written plot, fascinating characters, and intriguing (semi) mystery. I was definitely surprised by the second murder.
All The Difference is a well-paced domestic suspense thriller that will keep you up til the wee hours of the morning... "just one more chapter; I promise"... as you race to its shocking conclusion. Sex, murder, betrayal, intrigue make this truly a "can't-put-down" book.
Written with panache and a well-rounded cast of characters, All The Difference is a "must-read" I recommend without hesitation. Kaira Rouda never disappoints and All The Difference is no exception.
