HER GREATEST MISTAKE is the gripping debut which will keep you guessing until the very last page. BA Paris meets Liane Moriarty in this electrifying thriller.
I received a free e-copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review and I am very thankful for that! This will also be a spolier-free review. 🙂
I thought this book was just an okay books. I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it. I just kinda let it all flow and just followed along. I didn’t find myself super concerned but I was still interested. Does that make sense?
I absolutely loved the writing style! It was beautifully written and it made everything flow perfectly. The characters were described well and so was the plot. I just loved the writing style and how well written everything was because it makes it easier to read/like a book when things are described well and the book is written well. 🙂
I liked the characters and found it was easy to attach to Eve and her story. I also liked seeing how much was going on in her life and seeing how she had to try to be normal despite her very abnormal life. It was so interesting and it helped me get into the book a little more since I could feel Eve’s emotion and her fear. Also, her son, Jack, was great too! I liked that Jack wasn’t too involved but he was still a very important character. I just find that cool especially how Sarah was able to include him.
Sarah did a good job with incorporating smaller characters into the story. It’s cool how even the small characters played an important role in the development of the book. She did a beautiful job at that. 🙂
I don’t have anything bad to say about this book if I’m honest. I think things were all done very well. I just didn’t find myself in love with the book. I found that it was a good book but it wasn’t something that was exactly fast for me to read which kind of surprised me. I don’t know if that’s just because I have a lot on my mind or if this book wasn’t as captivating to me as I would have liked. Maybe it’s a bit of both.
Overall, I liked this book and I suggest it to thriller/mystery fans. 🙂 It was good and it had a good twist! It definitely kept me wondering and guessing throughout the book, wondering what was going to happen and if I was right haha. Shocker: I wasn’t!
Anyway, I hope y’all enjoyed this quick review and I hope y’all like this book if y’all choose to give it a read! ❤
