THE OTHER AND A REVELATION INother and a revelation in person s story is then picked up in the other s In this way the plot moves steadily and little tidbits of information come to light with spin from each party And you get the The Language of Love distinct impression neither is telling the full truth The only thing better than one unreliable narrator is two unreliable narrators amiriteThis book is truly a slow burningomestic noir masterpiece I read this one over only a few The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy days and when I reached the last page I couldn t even sit still because my mind was buzzing from the final scene Candlish has a way ofropping hints that the reader completely overlooks But as each twist is revealed the hints add up and make you realize you probably should have been able to tell what was going on the whole
That is you begin to empathize with the characters When the same things that fooled them fool you as wellCandlish is truly a master of crafting a carefully constructed plot that showcases how easy it is to be tricked into your worst nightmare I am still buzzing from the final reveal Quran Made Easy days later I can t wait for readers to begin this one and experience all of the twists themselvesMany thanks to Berkley for sending me an advanced reader copy of this novel to review I loved it Fiona Lawson comes home toiscover that there are other people moving into her home taken aback she confronts the people moving in When they insist that they have bought the house and now legally own it Fiona tries to get in contact with her husband Bram Though Bram and Fiona are separated they have been maintaining a custody arrangement that allows one of them to stay with the children in the house on Apro dnatoire differentays through out the week while the other stays at an apartment Fiona begins to realize what a mistake she has made in suggesting this arrangement as the ay progresses and she is unable to reach Bram "or locate their children Fiona struggles to find a solution as she faces the impending loss of her home " locate their children Fiona struggles to find a solution as she faces the impending loss of her home family Spoilers ahead blah blah This was really good like there was maybe one whole complaint I had about this one and that was it This was efinitely 45 stars I was so engrossed through out and honestly it really roped me in the way things escalated Like it was just Wabi Sabi: Japanese Wisdom for a Perfectly Imperfect Life driving violations and the next thing you know Bram is committing fraud and laundering money It also felt pretty believable and I have to say even though Bram had his faults I felt so bad for him through out The way he just kept getting boxed into the situation I know he has created the situation but it was still uiteepressing especially knowing that in the end he ends up killing himselfThe whole plot was just amazing the way it unfolded and the twists and everything managed to stay believable at the same time I also appreciate the sad but hopeful note at the end Now the one thing that peeved me the fact that it gets revealed that Merle is the one Bram slept with because it idn t feel foreshadowed I m mostly confused because I thought at one point in the book the women from HR comes to talk to him and tell him she s pregnant but now I m thinking it clearly must have been Merle unless he knocked them both up and I just misread it That just threw the whole thing off kilter because I wasn t even wondering who it had been and I had attributed the pregnancy as being with the women he slept with after the separation I just felt taken aback and it was probably all my fault I just missed any foreshadowing Anyway efinitely one of the best things I ve read so far this year unfortunately the list of things I have read is small this year because I have to go be responsible and all that bullshit I ll be back when I finally read a few books to write reviews but Maths Made Easy Times Tables Ages 5-7 Key Stage 1 definitely recommend this one to anyone looking for their next read.
