By Cate Holahan
3.5 out of 5 stars
Liza writes romantic suspense murder novels and though her first novel sold very well, she hasn’t had a big one again. She is writing about an affair and a murder that comes from that affair. The chapters of this book go between Liza’s life and writing to Beth’s life, the main character in her story, whose husband is having an affair. The lines begin to blur between her novel and her own life when there is a murder and things are way too similar.
I loved the concept of the story line. Liza struggles with trying to work out the points of her story but you can tell there is something more going on in her brain. Beth had fertility struggles and has a baby. Liza has been struggling with her own fertility problems. Her husband is obsessed with his missing partner. Beth’s husband has an affair with a cop he is working with. They all go hand in hand. There were a few times that I was more interested in the fictional story line than Liza’s own story and it dragged a bit. But this was a quick, easy read with a very interesting outcome. I would definitely read more books by Ms. Holahan.
I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
