--The New York Times Book Review
“A gripping and surprising romantic suspense story. . . . You won't want to put it down.”
“I absolutely loved this book and didn’t want it to end.”

“Debut author Walsh weaves an intricate story of mystery, deception, grief, and forgiveness that begins slowly and builds steam as the plot twists and turns, and steers clear of predictability. Told through a combination of letters and prose threading in and out of time, this novel will have readers ready to go back and reread it from the start.”

Writing like a British cousin of Liane Moriarty or Maria Semple, Walsh has a gift for blending complex characters, intricate backstories, and neck-snapping plot twists.”

that said, this is one of them.
Just about every part of the plot is contrived. I am aware that one needs a suspension of belief to read non-fiction, but events in this story would strain the credulity of even the most naive.
I am beyond tired of women being portrayed as being so obsessed with a man that they cannot function normally.
I did not find one person in this book to have anything other than a two-dimensional character development. I did not find one character in this book I could root for or like. I found both protagonists to be peopler who I would never want to meet or spend time with in real life. And I cannot, for the life of me, understand why the woman would ultimately allow this man into her life, when he had so clearly demonstrated such a total lack of any kind of empathy. Forgiveness is wonderful, and I fully believe in it, but I also believe in learning from one's past. This means she doesn't have to hate hime or anything like that, but I would surely be very cautious about letting someone like that into my life. They would have to earn my trust back over a period of time, not just instantly. But I didn't see much in the way of good judgement shown anywhere in this book.
I found myself reading and rereading passages, because I felt that just about every cliche in the book was used..or some variation of it. And I was so bored by reading it.
Also, there were a number of subplots that really had no reason for being. And absolutely no character development for other people in the book.
It gives me no pleasure to give a book a bad review, especially for a new(?) writer. I want to like every book I choose to read. But this one was a loser and I felt like throwing it against a wall when I finished it. And I am glad that other people enjoyed it.
I cannot recommend this book. Save your money. Had there been the choice of rating this book as a 'zero,' I would have chosen to do so.
A waste of time and money.
This was a really fun, smart romantic mystery and drama. It reminded me of early Liane Moriarty, in the best possible way. It's got a great story and some emotional depth to it.
I'll also say that I always see plot twists coming, and this one shocked me. Twice. TWO plot twists, neither of which I saw at all. Wherever you think this story is going? You're wrong.
