There are so many blurbs I have read in different books claiming that they are the next Gone Girl, I never thought that I would find it in a character like Paul Strom. He is the text book study of a narcissistic sociopath. He has planned the best day ever for his wife Mia. He is taking her to their house on Lake Erie. He has planned a dinner at the new restaurant in town. But things seem off with Mia. He can’t quite put his finger on it but he knows that he can charm her into anything. Hasn’t he always? She doesn’t know the secrets that he keeps and just why this trip is so important to him. Hmmmm…..
As I sat there reading into the night, I was praying for this man to get his due. I loved watching as he unraveled and yet tried to spin things his way. Why not? He always had before. Don’t ever tell him you can’t babysit! I loved how as the story progressed, we found out more and more about him. This man was one walking secret after secret. He is written so well. As horrible as he was, he kept me reading. It was dark and twisty and oh so delicious. I will not say you will love to hate Paul because you will probably pretty much just hate him but you will love this book. Definitely a page turner!
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and Graydon House in exchange for an honest review.
