Rating 3.5 Shocking, twisting, and enthralling all describe The book shares four different perspectives, which was interesting to read. The main character is Jane, a recent transplant from Arizona to an affluent neighborhood in Birmingham, Alabama. She is the neighborhood's dog walker, but she has her sights set on a bigger prize. I immediately felt like there was something "off" about her. Eddie is a secondary character who is a resident of Thornfield Estates. He recently lost his multi-millionaire wife, Bea, in a boating accident and her best friend, Blanche. Jane meets Eddie, and the two quickly form a relationship. Jane soon realizes that some secrets are impossible to keep hidden. The book's main point of contention is Jane's increasing obsession with Bea and the mystery surrounding her death. Jane even begins to question Eddie's alibi or lack thereof. Jane feels as if she can never live up to Bea, causing issues in the relationship. Without providing any spoilers, I found out quite quickly what had happened, who was or was not dead, who was or was not the murderer. I will say, I felt like I had been "Gone Girl-ed." While I could see where some of the plots were going, I most certainly did not see the revelations at the end of the book. The only part I struggled with was the switching between tenses. I would be reading one POV, and then it would switch to italics like a narrator was now speaking. I have read books where this happens, but it was just a bit jarring in this book. I would recommend this book to anyone who loved "Gone Girl," B.A. Paris' books, and who wants a quick but engaging read.
