An Updated Soap Opera ~ But Very Entertaining
My favorites to read are usually Mysteries and Legal Thrillers. I chose this novel based on the reviews and I needed a break from my usual. This novel really held my attention straight through because there was drama (daddy-mama drama and who's sleeping with who) galore! I felt well entertained even though I kept saying aloud "don't do it! are you crazy!" so you kinda knew from early on that things are not going to workout well for the central protagonist. I will criticize the author here because I don't think the central protagonist was developed well enough so that we could really care about her or to root for her. She kept repeating the same mistake and continued to have the excuse of "I made a mistake; it was just a mistake." I can accept making the same mistake over and over when the circumstances are different and you just couldn't see it coming. But to repeatedly make the same mistake in the same way with the same circumstances makes me think that you are just plain stupid.
But again, the story held my attention and I had a few good laughs as well. Pretty much every character - the major and the minor players - had plenty of drama that elevated this story to a good entertaining read. Not to say too much, but the novel had a bit of everything from murder, pedophilia and the resulting mental health issues, to plain ole infidelity. The best scene that I liked was between Gabe and his father. Like I said, there is a lot of drama here, even a reading of a Will with an unexpected outcome!
The narrators were good but it took a minute to adjust my ear to one of the male narrators. His voice had a choppy and overly aggressive tone, but I overcame my bias and quickly started to enjoy his voice.
