thoroughly enjoyed the beginning of this read until it took a bizarre turn, losing me along the way I know we all say we want something different, but something believable as well This book just went completely sideways for me I am still a fan of this author and her previous book Behind Her Eyes was a favorite of mine So yes I will still be reaching out for her next A buddy read with Susanne Thank you to NetGalley and HarperCollins Publishers Marcie has firmly established herself as the hot, younger, second wife to successful, Jason Maddox.In their posh Savannah community, replete with sumptuous mansions and a country club lifestyle, image is everything The older, blue blooded women in their social circle have come to accept her and even include her in their luncheons and tennis dates Marcie still can t help but feel like a second class citizen around them.Her upbringing was far from the life she enjoys now and she keeps the truth Marcie has firmly established herself as the hot, younger, second wife to successful, Jason Maddox.In their posh Savannah community, replete with sumptuous mansions and a country club lifestyle, image is everything The older, blue blooded women in their social circle have come to accept her and even include her in their luncheons and tennis dates Marcie still can t help but feel like a second class citizen around them.Her upbringing was far from the life she enjoys now and she keeps the truth of all that buried deep.When Jason s boss, the wealthy, recently widowed, William Radford IV, returns from a trip to London with a much younger, sexy as hell, second wife on his arm, the whole of Savannah society gets thrown for a loop Especially Marcie.She s no longer the youngest, or the most desirable for that matter The way Jason looks at the new Mrs Radford, Keisha, makes Marcie s skin crawl.Keisha is brazen in a way that would be refreshing if it wasn t so shocking to their social norms The way she plays housewife to the old coot, while also being sure to flirt with Marcie s husband every chance she gets, what exactly is she playing at After Jason asks her to befriend Keisha, Marcie learns a lotabout the girl than she bargained for The ladies quickly become two peas in a pod, but their friendship soon threatens everything Marcie has worked so hard for.Full of secrets, deceptions and a touch of Southern voodoo and superstitions, this book had me flipping the pages at a rate to set my fingers on fire This was unique, full of unlikable characters and drama fit perfectly for daytime programming I feel like this could be a month s run of General Hospital Is that show still on While I found this to be compelling, I can see how it might not work for everyone I wasn t satisfied with the ending at all In fact, I kind of hated it Additionally, not totally pleased with how race was presented in this story, but again, that is just my opinion.I will definitely remember it, that s for sure Thank you so much to the publisher, William Morrow Books, for providing me with a copy to read and review I appreciate it so much For Fans Of Liane Moriarty, Liv Constantine And Lisa Jewell, A Twisty Psychological Thriller

drama turned into an unbelievable, quite insane and confusing ride with the most dreadful characters I ve encountered in a while Just couldn t get on board this train Sadly, this one wasn t the thriller I hoped it would be Thanks to NG pub for the review copy I read Behind Her Eyes and I was one of those people that was not shocked by the unbelievable twist because the unbelievable twist was

weird review for me, I had so many different feels on this one I can literally break it down into sections.The first 25% I am really liking itI am thinking that this is the foundation for a great

books and haven t read them yet I couldn t wait to dig into this one This is going to be a weird review for me, I had so many different feels on this one I can literally break it down into sections.The first 25% I am really liking itI am thinking that this is the foundation for a great thriller The older rich man snagging a younger poor wife The country club all in a tizzy and gossiping A potential affair in the makingyes I was reeled in and readyThen the middlethe next 50%I started to wonder..hmm should I DNF this What is the plot Is the plot sex It readlike a steamy, romance novel which is not what I was bargaining for when I picked this up People were having sex here, there and everywhere Yeah not for meI want the killer thriller.Then the last 25% wellthings start gettinginteresting..and then the last couple chapters, I am thinking YES This is what I expected, full on thriller, twisted, evilYES Except I had to wait for about 90% of the book to get to this point.Honestly this is just my opinion I have seen some great reviews out there Just not my kind of read If I could just rate the last couple of chapters, well they were 5 star worthy for sure.Thank you so very much to Harper Collins for this ARC On the oof meter this book would be on the ooooooooof end Like a run out of breath type oof The oofiest of all the oofs.Ok let s start out with the Pros And now to the Cons The plot is sloppyUtterly undeveloped and unlikable charactersNo thrillsNo chillsNo mysterySex scenes that make EL James look like a Booker Prize winnerNext Thank you to the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review EXCERPT You can t tame a wild thing The thought bubbled up from some place deep down inside Marcie, a ripple in the stagnant water that had become her life She could feel Eleanor s appraising eyes on the guests, looking down from the gilt framed portrait that still hung on the staircase wall, overshadowing them all Dead less than a year What would she make of this turn of events A hubub of quietly spoken comments from the tight circle of people among whom Marcie stood fluttered in the warm EXCERPT You can t tame a wild thing The thought bubbled up from some place deep down inside Marcie, a ripple in the stagnant water that had become her life She could feel Eleanor s appraising eyes on the guests, looking down from the gilt framed portrait that still hung on the staircase wall, overshadowing them all Dead less than a year What would she make of this turn of events A hubub of quietly spoken comments from the tight circle of people among whom Marcie stood fluttered in the warm air Elsewhere, the tension of repressed snickers and sideways glances Well my, will you look at that The old dog Has he lost weight Sure doesn t look like a man ready to retire I didn t know what I was expecting, but she is something else And so young She was young, this newcomer among them, this second Mrs William Radford IV What, twenty two Younger Twenty three at the most Eleanor had been forty years older than that when she died ABOUT THIS BOOK Being the second wife can be murderOnce a cheat, always a cheat, they say Marcie Maddox has worked hard to get where she is after the illicit affair that started her new life a few years ago But her world of country clubs, yachts and sumptuous houses in Savannah, Georgia, isn t easy to maintain, no matter how hard she tries Nor is keeping her husband, Jason, truly interested.So, when Jason s boss brings home a hot new wife from his trip to London, the young Mrs William Radford IV isn t quite the souvenir everyone expected Sexy, drop dead gorgeous and black Keisha quickly usurps Marcie s place as the beautiful second wife But when Marcie sees the extra spark in the room when Keisha and Jason are together and their obvious, magnetic attraction, the gloves come off.Revenge is best served cold, but in the steamy Savannah heat, blood runs so hot that this summer it might just boil over into murder.MY THOUGHTS I got about 20% through and couldn t stand these women one second longer If that s what being rich does, I am giving up buying lotto tickets.They marry for money, for social status, then wonder why their husbands cheat on them If it doesn t have a brand name or status, they don t want to know They are condescending, and bitchy The men are no better The only genuine emotion among any of them, is fear Fear that they are going to be replaced by someone younger, sexier, wealthier.Not for me Reading is a personal and subjective experience, and what appeals to one may not please another So if you enjoyed the excerpt from Our Little Cruelties, and the plot outline appeals, please do go ahead and read it THE AUTHOR Sarah Pinborough is an award winning YA and adult thriller, fantasy and cross genre novelist and screenwriter She has publishedthan 20 novels and has written for the BBC and is currently working with several television companies on original projects

Well, well, well, what a tangled web we weaveGo in as blind as you can That s the best advice I can give for those who want to read this book I requested this book simply because I loved Behind Her Eyes by Pinborough I had no idea what the book was going to be about The basic gist from the synopsis is that beautiful Marcie Maddox knows what it is like to be the second wife, who now has a secure place in their social circle But when their friend, William, a recent widower brings home a Well, well, well, what a tangled web we weaveGo in as blind as you can That s the best advice I can give for those who want to read this book I requested this book simply because I loved Behind Her Eyes by Pinborough I had no idea what the book was going to be about The basic gist from the synopsis is that beautiful Marcie Maddox knows what it is like to be the second wife, who now has a secure place in their social circle But when their friend, William, a recent widower brings home a new wife after a whirlwind romance in London, their circle is shocked and Marcie feels jealous when she witnesses the attention her handsome husband is giving to Keisha, the new wife That s all folks What I will tell you is that this book took me by surprise and was very entertaining Just when I thought I had things figured out, Pinborough, changed things up a little There are some twists, turns, and revelations And after all of those, she isn t done yet Just when I thought the final reveal was shown, she surprised me yet again This book has it all, the perfect hot steamy setting of Savannah, sexy beautiful people, lies, deceit, secrets, betrayal and mysterious characters Most of the characters fall into the likable one minute unlikeable in the next because their motivation is never quite clear Some characters seem pretty transparent, but as I read further, I began to doubt what I thought I knew Oh, how I love books that keep me guessing Of course, there are some who just seem questionable from the get go A very entertaining, engaging and captivating book Thank you to William Morrow and NetGalley and Edelweiss who both provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review All the thoughts and opinions are my own
