The story flips between the past and the present. The past describes how the couple met and how their relationship evolved. The present deals with how Grace is trying to cope with the structure of their marriage and preparing for Millie to move in.
I don't want to give too much away but the abuse is horrific. It's not really physical but the mental and behavior treatment made me sick to my stomach. I have enjoyed books with violence but this, without any real gore, was beyond my ability to cope. I could not believe the evilness of it and I couldn't shake it. It is awful that it is rattling in my head. I wish there was a new [book:The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency|7061] but there's not. I will settle for a Hamish Macbeth.
I gave it two stars because it is well written and does keep you on the edge of your seat. There was a lot of improbabilities in it but it kept you reading. For me it was awful. If I was not reading it to review I would not have finished it. I would not recommend it to anyone.
This is like a really bad Lifetime TV movie. Characters poorly written and the plot totally predictable.
I love a good psychological thriller, but as popular as they are these days, a good one is hard to come by. The genre seems to have been taken over by abused women stories that do nothing to clarify understanding of the issue---while all being breathlessly compared to "Gone Girl" or "Girl on the Train"---two books that whether you liked them or not at least provided more than one layer vs. stories so thin you can see thru them.
The writing is workmanlike. I can imagine the author filling in the words between her plot bullet points efficiently, in order, with no interesting thoughts, reflections or unexpected insight to anything in the story.
A great story that starts you out slow and wondering what exactly is wrong with this perfect couple. I️ imagined the worse and its pretty close to that.
The story line is perfect just like the couple is portrayed until you find out Grace is married to a psychotic nightmare control freak.
No women wants to end up in Grace’s position, especially when she is a smart intelligent woman.
The ending is a little short but I️ love the fact that the tables get turned in the end. It’s just very scary to find out how easy Jack fools Grace right up until after she says “I️ do”.
You gotta love Mille, she may be intellectually disabled but she is extremely smart when it comes to this relationship.
