If you enjoyed: The Banker’s Wife

Synopsis from Goodreads: When you read this book, you will make many assumptions. You will assume you are reading about a jealous ex-wife. You will assume she is obsessed with her replacement – a beautiful, younger woman who is about to marry the man they both love. You will assume you know the anatomy of this tangled love triangle. Assume nothing.

This is the first thriller I’ve read in a while that found a way of proving the narrator to be reliable without giving away too much. It kind of reminds me of Sharp Objects in that way, but with a few more turns and a less tidy ending, but it works for this story. I would like to say more, but I don’t want to spoil anything! I wouldn’t label this a feminist book, but I didn’t find the women completely helpless either. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys domestic thrillers and women finding strength in themselves and each other.
