Weak

Not a very original story line. There are a lot of discrepancies and unanswered questions. Who gets on a plane to visit a murder scene that is not in law enforcement? The description of Houston is WAY off (I live here). Why stay with her cheating husband? How can the parents still live in their mansion when they are broke? errrrr

I didnt care about a single character in this book

I didn't feel sorry for the wife or the murdered mistress. I didnt care if the husband/adulterer sat in prison/killed himself/carried on with his life. All the side characters were poorly developed. The plot is thin,and implausible.
I was wanting to be engrossed and captivated like I was with Big Little Lies. I would suggest that book instead.

SO Many Unbelievables

Overall, I guess this is a good book. It's got some good twists. But you have to suspend belief several times. A biker who just happens to show up and offers to pick the lock of a gate for the wife? At night? In an alley? A taxi driver who actually goes into the house to find his fare? Who, after smelling the awful smells that he "knows" is death, continues to roam around the house. He finds the bloody body and keeps going, picking up things, into the closet, touching stuff, including her cell. Has the man never seen a cop tv show? He's apparently a timid man, yet he does this? THEN he finally calls the cops. And they do nothing to him? A husband who brings his illicit lover to THEIR house while the wife is gone. Her parents live in that town, the husband works for her daddy. Yet they go to the local bar to dance and get drunk? He introduces her to their small sons as "Other Mommy"? Those are just some of the unbelievables in a book full of holes. I’ve never read this author so I don’t know if she does this in all her books. If so, I don’t want to read them.

Too many questions left

Good mystery and story, but the author took no time to tie up all the questions created in the story. Felt it was a very lazy ending which took away all quality.
