I realize that I’m likely to be late to the game in reading this domestic thriller, but better late than never, really!
I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this one as much as I did, as I didn’t think I was the domestic thriller type. I really enjoyed the audiobook.
I really loved how Ms. Paris set us up to initially think that the relationship between Jack and Grace is one that we might all like to have. This is especially so, given Jack’s acceptance and affection for Grace’s sister, Millie. Millie is 17, and lives at a boarding school for youth with Down’s Syndrome. It seemed as though Jack and Grace, along with Millie, would make the idyllic family.
As the story evolves and Jack becomes stranger and stranger, I began to wish that Grace’s choices were a lot easier when it comes to whether or not she’ll escape her marriage. It’s a surprising flip the switch kind of read, with some things that you won’t see coming!
