This book was….different. I tend to always read the synopsis of the book, but even reading this one will not prepare you for the wild ride you are about to take! The author throws in some very good twists. Just when you’re ready to go right… the author goes left! Psychological suspense at its best! There were a few times I was so confused, that I had to reread so I thought things were going to get even more juicier than before. Unfortunately that didn’t happen for me.
I did find it humorous that one of the characters is reading a certain book, because this story began to remind me of that book/movie. That was the downfall for me. After that I couldn’t separate what I was reading from the book mentioned. I won’t say anymore, because it would be so easy to throw in a few spoilers!
While this was not for me, it might be for you!
Book Rating: 3/5
Wine Pairing: Ménage à Trois Midnight Dark Red Blend 2018
Newlyweds Sam Statler and Annie Potter are head over heels, and excited to say good-bye to New York and start a life together in Sam’s sleepy hometown in upstate New York. Or, it turns out, a life where Annie spends most of her time alone while Sam, her therapist husband, works long hours in his downstairs office, tending to the egos of his (mostly female) clientele.
Little does Sam know that through a vent in his ceiling, every word of his sessions can be heard from the room upstairs. The pharmacist’s wife, contemplating a divorce. The well-known painter whose boyfriend doesn’t satisfy her in bed. Who could resist listening? Everything is fine until the French girl in the green mini Cooper shows up, and Sam decides to go to work and not come home, throwing a wrench into Sam and Annie’s happily ever after.
