This was just OK for me; I think it went on a little too long. I liked the ending, but parts of it just dragged on and I skimmed pages at a time. I can't put my finger on why I didn't love it; I enjoyed the main storyline, but it seemed like it kept getting interrupted in (too long) flashbacks that just distracted and ruined it for me. Thanks to Edelweiss and Sourcebooks for the opportunity to read an advance digital copy! I was really into this book up until the protagonist left to go back to relive her past. That's when I start finding the book dragging to the end about the same issue over and over, how the narcissistic self hate mentality from her past made her trust the wrong person and miss calculate the true intention of her past reaching out to her. I started to disengage from when she was lured to leave her husband, up until then I found the book well written and believable – so believable in fact that at first I thoroughly disliked the neglect imposed by the husband and oppressive weather.My thanks to Netgalley and the publisher Sourcebooks Landmark for the digital copy to review.
it was a really slow read for me and not as good as I expected
Read it in 2 sittings! A great read!
Meh. the narrator was too whiney.
I wanted to burn this book
