    Mary Kubica gets so much right: the effects of sleep deprivation, the manifestations of grief, the physical symptoms of impending death in a person with a terminal illness, as well as the emotional turmoil of infertility and its detrimental effects on a marriage. I appreciate how much ...

    Well, that was some bullshit. I should have known better than to give this a try after reading Every Last Lie, which was a story where (view spoiler)[ literally nothing actually happens (hide spoiler)] . So I don't know why I'm surprised that in this book (view spoiler)[literally 86% o...

    This novel had an unexpected ending which you may love or hate. In my case, it upset me but then I made peace with it. It is the kind of ending that will make you say to the book: Are you serious? you cannot possibly do this to me! And after all those emotions I concluded it was s...

    When the Lights Go Out...... Kinda like "last call" at your local bar. You feel definitely woozy as you slide off that bar stool, but there's never been a drop of liquor in your glass after all. Mary Kubica has truffled with our truffles here. Kubica presents the story of Jes...

    I'm a huge fan of Mary Kubica and this is the fourth book of hers that I have read. While it's not my favorite of hers, it still kept me awake all night with the familiar chant of "just one more chapter" until I found myself at the end of the book as the sun was rising. From the beginn...

    Favorite Quotes: I told her that we?re trying. Trying to have a child, trying to start a family. An odd choice of words for creating a baby, if you ask me. Trying is how one learns to ride a bike. To knit, to sew. To write poetry. The frustration over my identity boils inside ...

    WOW! I was riveted as I read this book. My mind was racing and suspicions were at an all time high. This book is definitely a slow burn. It simply simmers as you read. You are seeped into anxiety right alongside the main character, Jessie. The story is told from two main viewpoints...
