Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.
But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable.
Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows.
Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.
So there you have it. This has been one of the most talked about books on line for a while now. And I’m going to just say it. I did not care for it at all.
There wasn’t really a lot of depth to it. I figured out what was going on in the first chapter. And how it would probably end. It always amazes me how authors come up with such intelligent and independent female leads that turn in to idiots when they meet the ‘perfect’ man. Who always turn out to be psycho.
Who in this day and age marries someone they barely know and then the guy doesn’t show for the honeymoon night? That right there would be enough for me to dust off my shoulders and kick myself in the ass for being an idiot!
I didn’t get the psychological thriller part. Sadist? Maybe. For the first time in maybe forever I just wanted it to be over and done with.
Sorry folks but that’s my own humble opinion!
