Couldn't put it down!

This was one of the best books I've read in a while. The author did a great job of creating the thoughts and feelings of the main character, Grace. It was almost painful to keep reading at times but yet you wanted to know what was going on. I am going to look for more b...
This was one of the best books I've read in a while. The author did a great job of creating the thoughts and feelings of the main character, Grace. It was almost painful to keep reading at times but yet you wanted to know what was going on. I am going to look for more books by Ms. Korelitz.

Grace Sachs is a successful therapist, mother to a young son and wife to a pediatric oncologist at a major cancer hospital. Grace is also the author of You Should Have Known, a book about women valuing their intuition and first impressions. It all hits the fan when the Grace's own marriage is in headlines. A bloody murder, a missing husband and unbelievable revelations rock Grace's world. She must heed her own advice and piece together what she knows and does not know.




I am the type of reader that reads every word. I don't want to skip pages or miss any reactions. But this novel? Seriously encouraged me to skim. Of the 383 pages, 183 pages are unnecessary. There is so much background information and detail that gets in the way of what comes next, what really matters in the plot. While the formula of psychological thriller plus not knowing who your spouse really is had all the makings of a good novel, it was a struggle to finish reading.

    Not my cup of tea

    This was the book that was chosen by my book club. I thought it was pretty predictable. It was also annoying that you never hear anything from the husband which would have given this story more dimension. Not my cup of tea, but if you like fictional stories, then maybe you will enjoy this.
