Talk about stalking, rabbit boiling bitches! You do not want Juliette on your bad side! If she says she loves you, she REALLY means it. And she will also apparently go to any length to keep you. Tie you up for 12 plus hours and leave you alone? Why not? Come in your home while you’re working and decorate, then remove it all at the end of the day? Sure, that’s just a normal part of love. All in a days wifely duties! ( )

Poorly researched and badly written story full of plot holes and obvious attempts to seem thrilling. Its psycho aspect is spot on though. Vapid, colourless characters trip over each others' ridiculous attempts to win dull men and exact revenge for vague recollections of school girl spite. ( )

Thanks to HarperCollins for this stylish physical ARC. It is a rare day that I get one of those.

(Hey...does anyone, like, really wanna read Gone Girl?)

This just...really did not work for me. I got the ARC at an event that highlighted it, so maybe my hopes were just too high, and I don't have any experience with domestic thrillers. There's something there, but I was left severely underwhelmed. It was consumable, fast, and interesting, but it never went far enough, and most of the points felt super easy and recycled. This is thriller-lite.

Using such a troublingly thin set of motives/traumas - girls bullied me, guy broke up with me, dead little brother (which was enough for a prologue all about it but it never added up to anything...?) - still offers opportunities for twisting a "crazy" character just right, but this just didn't do it. Juliette wasn't fascinating and I don't think the author used the tools she had all that effectively. Everyone around her was boring as well, and the stiff unnatural dialogue certainly didn't help. It got so close sometimes, really close to being dark, but it just ended up being a lot of canned villain quotes and pointless phone-thievery.

Still, I gotta give kudos to books that I come out of not really being thrilled about, but I still was excited to pick them up and tear through. Beach read, a really good vacation read. The constantly changing settings as she travelled across the world for work really worked in its favour. And I want to give debuts a fair shake. But this really didn't do anything for me, besides make me want to seek out more domestic thrillers with a little more devilry and a little more bite. ( )

Wow! What a debut novel by Karen Hamilton. As a former flight attendant, her knowledge of the industry shines thru! Ms. Hamilton slowly and methodically spins her web and coaxes us in.

From the first chapter, Lily/Elizabeth/Juliette is 10, watching her little brother, Will, age 4. Why and what happens next, will carry thru the rest of her life. She tries so hard to make friends at Boarding school. Unfortunately, she is met by a privledged girl, Bella, who is the epitome of a mean girl. This will set wheels in motion, and Juliette takes things to a whole new level. Her stalker/obsession for Nate, Bella’s brother is scary! But, Nate is not the only object of her obsession. So many twists and turns. Ms. Hamilton makes us fear Juliette and pity her in same breathe. Pieces of the puzzle are slowly given until the ending. The ending will leave you wanting more!

Thanks to Netgalley, Karen Hamilton and Harlequin-Graydon House books for the ARC. All opinions are my own. ( )
