Double Deceit

We rated this book:


Jennifer and her family are on vacation when her husband, Oliver, dies. As shocking as that is, while Jennifer is grieving, she discovers that Oliver had many secrets. She tries to put her life back together, but can’t stop thinking about the woman he was having an affair with. She decides to contact her, and in a weird twist of fate, they discover that their husbands worked for the same law firm and that there were some shady things going on there. They both decide to investigate further, but are met with threatening notes. It’s clear their lives are in danger and that Oliver’s death might not have been an accident.

I wish I could say this was a good book, but I cannot. The characters were disjointed and unrelatable. The storytelling was of the most basic kind, with incredibly short chapters and almost no descriptions. The idea itself was not very original and the storytelling did nothing to make it worthwhile. I hate giving bad reviews because I do understand how much work goes into writing a novel and that the author cares about their story. However, I cannot recommend this book as it is right now. It feels like a first draft, not a finished story.
