What The Future Holds Forthe future holds for genre I sympathize with suspense novelists everywhere when I say that it s uite a predicament and not one that I have an answer for All that to say I feel like this book fell into the realm where if it had been published in an earlier era perhaps it wouldn t have felt so predictable Poor Alice has been living in survival mode for uite some time After the sudden disappearance of her husband Tom she fell down a dark hole of depression and anxiety Even after a decade has passed with a new husband an additional daughter between them and a successful thriving design business Alice is continually batting away anxiety drama and everything negative I can t get into too much detail here but the story consists of heaps of drama coming from every angle of Alice s life There are problems in her marriage problems with friends problems with her kids at school and her own personal demons she battling It s
a lot going on and I appreciate how the author was able to tie itlot going and I appreciate how the author was able to tie it together by the ending but this might have been one of the first ways the book became predictable With so many moving parts I found there was really only one set path the story could take and that took away a bit of the surprise factor by the novel s climaxThe pacing was super fast in this one and I only found myself dragging a bit when the narrator changes in the middle and gives us a past tense view The entire middle portion is a huge reason why my star rating went down to a 3 it felt unnecessary as everything we find out in that portion is exactly what I assumed would be written upon starting it and only serves as confirming a backstory This was ust personal preference and may work better for other readers than it did for myself If you re looking for a fun compulsive read this summer to pass the time I d still recommend picking this up I m glad I read it and will continue to look out for from the author Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy FOUR STARSI like THE FIRST MISTAKE I was afraid I wouldn tI like it mucho mucho than The Other Woman and since I gave that one a three star rating it seems only fair to give Jones s newest novel four big onesThere are only three main characters in THE FIRST MISTAKE and I love that We have a wife and husband and wife s best friend That s it These three characters become so entwined confused and convoluted you can t even imagine While the writing borders on a bit cheesy for me the c 4 StarsBe Careful WHO you place your trust inAlice is a happily married mother of two Nathan really has been a life saver and she loves him desperately Not as much as her first husband Tom but still enough Their business is thriving and life is good Beth is Alice s best friend Beth has always struggled ever since her boyfriend left her alone and pregnant Through thick and thin Beth and Alice have always had each other Who knew they would be tested with something like thisWhat happens when it turns out you don t really know the people you love the most Trust is a slippery slopeIt s the First Mistake you make that s always the hardest Stripped just ask AliceWhat a 35 stars rounded up The First Mistake was a delightful weekend read I recommend you pick this up if you are looking to escape life for a while I completed this in under 24 hours I literally could not put it down This one whisked me away into another person s craziness and that wasust what I needed Alice s life hasn t always been perfect although from the outside it may appear soShe lost her first husband Tom a decade ago and as expected the tragedy hit her extremely hard Her young daughter was really the only thing that helped her pull through the griefShe has since remarried her new husband Nathan seems like a catch The couple own a successful design company and have added another little girl to the familyAlice feels motivated and content Life is goodUnfortunately Nathan suddenly starts to behave curiously and all Alice s old anxieties rise to the surfaceHer best friend Beth who always has.

I had fun reading The First Mistake by Sandie Jones It was a uick easy read for me and had my mind reeling with all the twists and turns Despite the fact that I was correct with some of my suspicions about what was going on the in the book I enjoyed finding out why things were happening and who was doing exactly what Alice lost her first husband in an accident had a nervous breakdown and was saved by her second husband Nathan who now works with her in the business that Alice and her first husband created Beth is Alice s best friend and the person Alice confides in when she starts having suspicions concerning Nathan Then Alice s life goes farther downhill when she finds that her life with her first husband could have been a lie Things get twisted and tangled and it s hard to know who to believe or whether Alice is overly paranoid and mixing too many drinks and medicines to even think clearly One minute I m thinking that Alice is way to uick with her anger and blame and the next minute I don t trust anyone in the book Thank you to St Martin s Press and NetGalley for this ARC 35 Stars A fast paced and twisty read that is full of twists and turns I absolutely loved this author s debut novel The Other Woman and went into this one with high expectationsThis one was predictable but I was pleased at how the reveals slowly expose what is going on beneath the surface I figured out all the big twists but I was still pleased Still found myself whispering what the heck is going on here It moved uickly and kept me interested and the whole the wife the husband the best friend triangle was very clever and fun There is so much going on and it is ust so darn entertaining to put all the clues together and have your awe moment Even though I saw it coming And the ending I admitwas a shocker Recommend for a fast light and FUN vacation readThanks to ST Martins Press for my review copy This one published on June 2019 35 starsAnother thriller another crazy rideTruthfully though the thrillers I read the I feel that my life isn t nearly as screwed up as I think it is sometimesAlice had an idyllic life with her husband Tom a growing business and a beautiful young
