The Favor: A Novel

We rated this book:


The Favor is a story about two women, Leah and McKenna, both in abusive relationships. In fact, their lives are so similar in so many ways that it is uncanny. Leah’s husband Liam is a high-powered attorney. Leah is an attorney as well but likes to draw up documents for clients rather than be in the courtroom. McKenna’s husband, Zack, is a psychiatrist and McKenna is a pediatrician. Both Liam and Zack make their wives stop working and keep track of their every move. Both husbands have become physically abusive as well. So when Leah decides to follow McKenna home from a liquor store to see her perfect life, she discovers this beautiful woman is just like her.

This book is fantastic and kept me on my toes the whole time to see what would happen. And although the similarities between the two women were a little too unrealistic, the book really brings to life the seriousness of domestic abuse and violence. This book is perfect for fans of Chevy Stevens and Riley Sager.
