My honest review:
This book really sucked all my emotions. I felt insane reading it and literally have to exercised deep breathing techniques. This book will make you laugh , cry and angry till you pull your hair out. I’m just speechless after reading this.
The story starts with a women who feels unloved by her husband, trying to keep everything in her life routine and in order as she’s been doing really well all this while. Well until one day something inside her snaps, and her “normal” life gets stirs up. Things push her more to the limit when she recently made acquittance with her new colleague Z, who genuinely concern for her happiness and wanted to help her.
I really love the chemistry between the characters. The dialog are really witty and heart-felt. I must say the first part of the book was funny but bit draggy and a I’m not sure where the story was heading, but once the second part kicks in I was hooked and can’t put it down. Come to the beginning of part 3, I’m hyperventilating, knowing there’s 3 months gap missing from the end of part 2. What’s going on? what happen to Z? at this point I was at the edge of my bed. And Part 4 came with more endless twist & surprises. ( so you have to read it to find out)
Just Wow!! Such an amazing story line!! Such a brilliant story. I applaud Sarah Ann Walker for her first debut novel. Please grab a copy of the book, simply amazing read !
