After reading a few kid books, I’m ready for some adult time. I had some credit to use with my Amazon Kindle and found a review for KL Slater’s The Mistake. A review of “You won’t be able to put it down” gets me almost every time, along with comparisons to Gone Girl and The Girl on a Train (love both of these).
Overall, this read was a nice break, but nothing I would rave about. The controlling, horrible boyfriend made me absolutely crazy. I hated him and was aggravated with Rose for putting up with him as long as she did. This is a credit to the author’s ability to create a solid character. Rose’s brother Billy’s death and finally finding out “who done it” was somewhat forced for me though. Not a big shocking surprise, but rather a… really?
So it will be back to kid literature for a while. Next up will be more of the Intermediate Nutmegs while keeping my eyes and ears open for the next adult novel.
