Too Good to Be True: A Novel
Too Good To Be True is a book that I found myself unable to put down. With its complex characters and twisted plot, this book held my interest from page to page.
Burke and Heather have been married since they were just kids. As childhood sweethearts, they always had each other. Burke, however, seems to be able to find himself in trouble wherever he goes, with Heather desperately trying to pick up the pieces while raising their three children. Then one day, Burke meets Skye. Skye is young, beautiful, and rich. Burke creates a plan to woo Skye and get just enough money to keep his family afloat after losing his job. What ensues is a story of madness, heartbreak, and revenge.
This book is deceptive in the best way possible. Written in alternating points-of-view between Burke, Heather, and Skye, it is unclear who is telling the truth and who is not quite reliable in their storytelling. The way the author crafted this story is pure genius. The twists in this book are realistic and unbelievable at the same time. I recommend this book to fans of Shari LaPena, Lisa Jewell, and Fiona Barton.
