This is my “Pandemic” book for CBR13Bingo. Also, I give it 3.5 stars.
What is it about guys named Adam in domestic thrillers? This is the second book in a row that I’ve reviewed featuring a man named Adam in a troubled couple at the center of a narrative. This couple is very different, however.
Emily and Adam are dating, and their relationship has moved fairly quickly. Before they’ve even been dating for a year, they are engaged and planning a wedding. Emily is beautiful and smart and driven…. And so is Adam. They’re a perfect couple! There’s just one problem – Adam’s mother, “Pammie”.
Pammie goes out of her way to send passive-aggressive slights to Emily – constantly sending the message that Emily isn’t good enough to marry her son. Whether it’s forcing a chasm between Emily and her best friend Seb, or ruining her dress-fitting, or inviting a sworn enemy to the bachelorette party, Pammie seems to have one thing on her agenda: break up Emily and Adam.
As with all domestic thrillers, not everything is as it appears to be.
This was a quick read and an interesting story; and it’s almost worth a re-read. I was looking for a diverting book to take a break from my day-to-day life, and this fit the bill.
I’d recommend it if you’re looking for something quick, easy, and fun.
