First comes love, then comes marriage. You think you know the person you vow to spend the rest of your life with – but are you really just seeing an image of the person you WANT to see?
Claire’s husband Paul is murdered in front of her. As she attempts to grieve this loss, she is confronted with many truths she chose to ignore throughout her marriage. She is forced to look at her own dysfunctional family and tragic unsolved kidnapping of her older sister.
The book is long but the read is short. I thought it would take me a few months to finish the 416 pages, but I flew through it. It’s not the best story I’ve ever read, and its not the best written, but its good. better than most.
The characters are believable and the story has no noticeable holes. The characters are flawed but triumphant in using the flaws to their advantage.
I give this book a 3/5.
