⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word. Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations—a search for the truth that threatens to consume him….
For me, this just didn’t live up to the hype. I was quite disappointed with the book in general, and I would have given it less stars if not for the twist at the end. The twist was good and I’ll give credit for that but the rest of the book just wasn’t anywhere near as good as I expected. I found that the book just focused on Theo too much and while I can obviously see why, I found myself getting bored of his story and I wanted to see more of Alicia’s life in the time leading up to her husband’s death. We only got her perspective from her diary which wasn’t enough for me. The book was divided into a number of parts and it would have been nice if one of those was solely dedicated to the entirety of Alicia’s life leading up to the murder rather than excerpts of her life from a diary. As everyone knows, I hate books with an abrupt ending or with a cliffhanger, and this was exactly that. We don’t know the conclusion for the characters and that honestly drives me mad. I think all the amazing reviews I saw of this meant I had extremely high expectations and honestly it just didn’t live up to them. Not for me to be honest.
