This book didn't quite captivate me -- perhaps because it just sounded like a whiny, good-wifey person trying to figure out what her husband had done to their marriage throughout most of the story. Of course, she found out -- although the finding out was tedious and somewhat contrived it seemed to me. In the end, the whiny wife got her revenge -- but it wasn't a satisfying ending to the story at all. It just seemed that two evil, immature people found each other and made a mockery of marriage. If I could do it over, I wouldn't spend the time or money.

Ultimately disappointing. Kind of a romance book mixed with a thriller, or a thriller about a romance. The husband's motives for lying to his wife and not going to Florida felt pretty weak. Then they threw in this handy new love interest who also happens to be a lawyer, (Evan) so he can now help Iris with looking into Will's background, chasing leads, and dealing with the police. He makes Will look bad in comparison, with what meager shading in of his character we do get; plus he's more interested in saving and protecting Iris than almost anything else, despite the fact that he just lost his wife and child in the same plane crash. He even invites her to stay at his home for her safety, saying he can't stand how empty it feels. Idk, i just feel like a lot of the characters motivations seemed manufactured for plot ease.
On the other hand, it's a pretty good thriller, better than your typical dime mystery whodunit, and I liked the twist at the end (the last sentence.) Not a big twist, but kind of an ironic twist; a cynical statement about forgiveness and reprisals, I suppose. Like other reviewers said, it's pretty strong for the first 2/3rds. And it's not as if the last third is weak, exactly, I just felt disappointed by the answers
