Pretty good mystery, but took too long to FINALLY tell all.

The story was interesting, but extremely hard to follow. The writing could have been better and it feels as if details were left out. The book bounced back and forth through time, but did so poorly in a way that left me struggling to put the pieces together.

The ending, while unpredictable, was poor and left out details.

Throughout the book, I found myself having to reread things, sure that I had missed something, only to discover I had not. The characters were undeveloped, with random new traits thrown in sporadically and incompletely.

I'm still not sure who did what, or what the purpose of a lot of it was. And that's not an issue on my end, it's an issue on the author's.

Another story about a victimized wife, but this one is much better than Girl on the Train. Like many current novels, this one goes on too long, but the heroine's situation kept me interested until the end. Well written with engaging characters and an unpredictable outcome.
