Thank you ST.MARTIN’S PRESS for the chance to read and give an honest review.
WOW! This is an amazing read. I could not put it down.
This is the story of a marriage…..a very scary marriage. Jack and Grace appear to everyone to be the perfect couple, they have the perfect home, Jack has a perfect job, Grace keeps a perfect home, has the perfect garden, has fabulous dinner parties, cooks gourmet meals. Grace and Jack seem to be a loving couple, they never leave each others side.
Grace has a sister named Millie, who has Down’s syndrome, and stays at a school, the plan being to have her move into the home with Jack and Grace.
I do not want to give any clues to this story, so I will tell you, the author’s writing style was great, she wrote from the present to the past. She drew me right into the characters lives, I had a bad feeling about the marriage, but couldn’t put my finger on it. Jack was too perfect, he seemed to have an evil undertone. Grace seemed so passive, that at times I did not like her. Millie is very intuitive to her surroundings and the people in her world.
This was a shocking read, I was on the edge of my seat. This was a suburb psychological novel, with a true psychopath.
If you love suspense, nail biting terror, excellent writing, and the best ending ever, you will love this novel. Thank goodness for sisters and neighbor’s.
