“There was an invisible barrier between the words he spoke aloud and the ones that danced inside his head.”
Elementary school teacher Jacqueline “Jacks” Morales’s marriage was far from perfect, but even in its ups and downs it was predictable, familiar. Or at least she thought it was…until two police officers showed up at her door with devastating news. Her husband of eight years, the one who should have been on a business trip to Kansas, had suffered a fatal car accident in Hawaii. And he wasn’t alone. For Jacks, laying her husband to rest was hard. But it was even harder to think that his final moments belonged to another woman—one who had left behind her own grieving and bewildered fiancé. Nick, just as blindsided by the affair, wants answers. So he suggests that he and Jacks search for the truth together, retracing the doomed lovers’ last days in paradise. Now, following the twisting path of that fateful road, Jacks is learning that nothing is ever as it seems. Not her marriage. Not her husband. And most certainly not his death…
I don’t have a lot to say about this novel. However, for a thriller I was interested. I didn’t care much to get attached to the characters or the plotline. I wanted to finish it but I didn’t care if I did or didn’t at the same time. I wasn’t it’s biggest fan (it’s a bestseller) because it was so similar to every other thriller novel I’ve read in my life.
Affairs. Lies. Betrayal.
It’s so atypical. The characters were all stupid and naive. Like hello, common sense? ever heard of it?…
Weird stuff happened and you brain is just like.. what the hell is this?
Little to no character development. Except one person.
The POV switch was a little odd.
Lack of visual details.
So yeah, 2 stars. It wasn’t great.
