the one A real keeper Due to Nina s lack of income and savings she makes the easy decision to move into a new home with Simon along with her two teenage kids Maggie and Connor And it s no stretch to say the new family is far from happy There were sections of this book that had me riveted Shocking revelations Real jaw dropping moments But there were also points in the story that had me rolling my eyes Nina s apparent weaknesses, to be precise I also stumbled when the story line switched to Maggie s POV Sorry, just too YA for me But, overall it was a fun thriller that managed to shock me, and made for the perfect spring summer read A buddy read with Susanne whose detective cap was working much better than mine She had it all figured out Lol Thank you to NetGalley and St Martin s Press for an ARC to read and review WOWWWW This is SOOOO DISTURBING, MINDBENDING This is nightmar ish, terrifying, unputdownable, sick, nasty My head is spinning My mind already left my head, running out of the town with a valise filled with my remaining grey cells This book hooked me up from the first sentence I couldn t stop reading I couldn t also bite my nails because they were too short and freshly manicured so I accidentally consumed 3 bags of doritos, 2 bags of gummy bears, 2 pounds of tomatoes I might have killed WOWWWW This is SOOOO DISTURBING, MINDBENDING This is nightmar ish, terrifying, unputdownable, sick, nasty My head is spinning My mind already left my head, running out of the town with a valise filled with my remaining grey cells This book hooked me up from the first sentence I couldn t stop reading I couldn t also bite my nails because they were too short and freshly manicured so I accidentally consumed 3 bags of doritos, 2 bags of gummy bears, 2 pounds of tomatoes I might have killed my husband s cooking tomato soap dream, but they were only eatable things on the fridge , 2 tubes of Colgate don t judge it, at least I rejected to bite lavender soaps as a result I took a nice visit to ER for stomach pumping After my lack of culinary skills, ER crew got used to our visits and they planned to give my name to the one of the hospital room But throughout the stomach pumping experience, I resumed reading thanks to lovely nurses gave their permission to use their fingers for turning the next page at my kindle They even gave audiobook services by sharing the characters to read I adored D J Palmer s spooky, sneaky, thrilling words, even though there are some missing pieces about characters motives, some exaggerations, nonsense and illogical parts, I could only cut half star and I m willingly rounding 4.5 to 5 stars again I didn t like Saving Meghan so much and had difficult time to relate with the characters and the slow paced storytelling even though I enjoyed stories about Muchausen by proxy syndrome Stephanie Wrobel s upcoming book Darling Rose Gold is an amazing example how to create so disturbing but also entertaining thriller about that subject But at this book, all characters are vivid and I liked to read their POVS, visiting their minds and learningabout their struggles, motives and different opinions And pacing was incredibly fast, heart throbbing I kicked the air with my legs in excitement and fear to learn what was gonna happen next I mostly loved teenage daughter Maggie and her determination to believe in her own instincts to save her family from the danger And of course Nina, a survivor and strong character who struggles to get on her feet after her husband s betrayal, disappearance, left them penniless, vulnerable The story starts with Glen a.k.a seems like a douchebag husband deserves my ten thousand slaps or five thousand punches in the face punishment campaigns, disappears, leading a double life with another woman Two years passes and his body has never been found Nina builds a new life by moving with Simon Fitch, teacher from her daughter s middle school Simon seems like a dreamy boyfriend, financially supports to the family, having a close relationship with Nina s son Connor He is protective, romantic, caring and supportive guy But according to Nina s daughter Maggie, those dreamy attributes of Simon were not sincere Her gut tells her there is something wrong and dangerous with this guy and she still believes her father is out there, alive, coming back to them.So is Glen really liar douchebag who left his family and having a fantastic new life with his mistress Is Maggie jealous of her mother s second chance of love Is she too paranoid about Simon s motives Is Simon really too good to be true kind of manipulating, obsessive guy Could Nina be sleeping with her own enemy There are too many twists, surprises, nothing as it seems my spider senses caught them all but I still enjoyed each one the twists There are not so many things really thrill me If I listed what I really scare me below MY HUSBAND S NIGHTIME CONCERTS Most of my neighbors think our house is sound effects studio or a zoo only works at the midnight time because my husband s snoring resembling the wild animals chorus singing We re the world We re the animals just left the National Geography Wild Channel My neighborhood kids still ask for zoo tickets to visit our house and see all those wild animals I couldn t tell them only one man made all those sounds by snoring Nobody believes me Second thing is CLEANING When I see a vacuum cleaner I thought it can become alive any minute and choke me with its hose and I m allergic to bleach But this bookterrifying than husband snores and acrid smell of bleach It excited me, made me sit at the edge of my seat and fall down too many times, also gave me paranoid thoughts I still give my suspicious looks to my husband with widen eyes which make him check if something are wrong with my contact lenses So I m not threatening enough I should practice my looks in the mirror I highly recommend this to all thriller lovers looking for twisty, smart, entertaining but also agitating stories.Special thanks to NetGalley and St Martin Press to share with amazing ARC COPY in exchange my honest review Maybe it s early to say but I might have read one of

heart ached for him He was trying so hard to make it work for everyone, Maggie included This was a VERY frustrating domestic thriller There must have been exceptions in the past, but right now I m going to put it down to my inability to deal with that particular type of mystery thriller where the reader knows everything that is going on and has to sit and wait until the characters quit scratching their heads and finally catch up.Thrillers are my Nina heard the hurt in Simon s words and her heart ached for him He was trying so hard to make it work for everyone, Maggie included This was a VERY frustrating domestic thriller There must have been exceptions in the past, but right now I m going to put it down to my inability to deal with that particular type of mystery thriller where the reader knows everything that is going on and has to sit and wait until the characters quit scratching their heads and finally catch up.Thrillers are my go to comfort reads, which, I suppose, is a bit weird But I can usually rely on them to pick me up out of a slump when I ve exhausted myself on other genres When The New Husband was getting a lot of buzz in my GR feed, I was quick to add it What I can say about The New Husband is that there s nothing actually new about it It s a very standard domestic thriller with an unbelievably performative gaslighting asshole at its centre.I never warmed to the writing in this book As much as I enjoy a good cliffhanger chapter, I found it really cheesy and contrived when chapters would end with when Simon came marching into the room holding a gun because, come on, it s chapter 6 so you know he s not really threatening them with a gun and She d forgotten to clear the browser history because, duh, I d been mentally screaming at the page for the last five minutes for the same reason It just read like an old B movie I was adding a dum dum dum in my head.Also, serious pet peeve I really wanted them to stop talking about the darkness in Simon s eyes All the time And I tried really really hard to sympathize with Nina, but why is she so clueless She does so many ridiculous things She constantly notes how Simon says something weird or does something creepy and then brushes it away I understand the subtle manipulation that is part of abuse, but nothing about Simon is subtle He s such a terrible liar Warning bells are ringing left and right and she just keeps right on ignoring them And if you re doing something sneaky on a shared computer, make sure you log out of Facebook Oh god, view spoiler the bit where she s snooping in his house and she s just sat there, chilling out, reading a diary on his bed Was she trying to get caught She could have taken the damn diary hide spoiler I was actually quite annoyed how it seemed like the characters would do something very stupid or take their sweet time when they re in danger just to move the plot in a certain direction and create somedrama.Also, I kept waiting for the promised twist to happen and then suddenly I was at the end of the book and I realised that what was supposed to be the twist was actually just something I d assumed we all knew from the beginning Actually, scratch that, I had already figured out most of it by reading the blurb, before I even started the book view spoiler Her husband goes missing, a new guy shows up and knows all her interests, her favourite food, what impresses her where could he have possibly gotten this information Who could have known this and told him scratches head hide spoiler I feel really harsh giving a one star review, but it would be disingenuous to give anything else I really struggled with everything about this book The writing, the characters, the ridiculous showmanship of the villain come on, winking at Maggie Sorry to say it didn t work for me.Facebook Instagram
