The Opportunist: A Novel

We rated this book:


Alana has been receiving urgent text messages from her brothers since her seventy-six-year-old father, Ed, announced he was going to marry his twenty-eight-year-old nurse, Kelly. Alana could care less, since she hasn’t spoken to her father in years, but her brothers won’t let it drop. They are convinced she’s a gold-digger out to steal their father’s billions. They persuade Alana to come to their father’s island to try and talk Kelly out of it. However, Kelly turns out to be a force to be reckoned with and it will take a lot more than a request to get rid of The Opportunist.

Overall, this was a great book, and I would recommend it to those who enjoy revenge stories, especially those with lots of twists. I think the only thing that would make it better is to have had it be longer, with more backstory on the characters. That could have certainly added to the suspense and made the ensuing deaths seem like more of a big deal, instead of just getting rid of characters that you weren’t really attached to. It’s a quick read, making it a great addition to your booklist.
