This time I like to think I’m sharing the books I read in March more on time! Woohoo! For the most part, I enjoyed what I read in March. I’m torn with one of the books because I was intrigued the entire time yet appalled. Actually, some of you told me on Instagram that you were not a fan of that book. So now I get why.
I took my sweet time reading in March and I’m impressed that I was able to read three books haha.
What I Read In March 2022
Marissa and Matthew are wealthy married suburbanites right outside of D.C. They seem to have it all and everyone calls them the golden couple until Marissa revealed she was unfaithful. She wants to repair their relationship and hires Avery. Avery was a therapist that lost her professional license and now is a marriage consultant. She’s known for her unorthodox methods and Matthew and Marissa are desperate. When Marissa reveals her infidelity, all three of them are set on a collision course and the biggest secrets in the room are still hidden and it becomes more than the marriage that’s in danger.
This book was one of my highly anticipated new release to read and it did not disappoint. As you all probably know, I love a book about rich and wealthy people with secrets. This book satisfied it and more. It was suspenseful and I did not expect the twist. The whole time I thought I knew who was behind this big secret and I was just following along to find out why and how this is all happening. But once the twist revealed, I was impressed with the authors on how they portrayed every character.
Sophie and her family left the big city and her envy-inspiring career to settle down in a small town in Texas. Everything seems idyllic until Sophie realizes it is too quiet and is feeling bored. Sophie meets Margot – the town’s socialite who is part of an elite clique that is secretly known as The Hunting Wives. Sophie is immediately drawn by Margot and becomes obsessed. She joins the Hunting Wives with their late-night target practice and dangerous parties. One day, a body of a teenager girl is discovered in the woods. Sophie finds her life spiraling out of control.
Here I go reading another book about wealthy people with secrets. But this time, I’m unsure how I feel about this book. It was suspense and I did want to keep reading to find out how it all ends for every person. However, I found the book to be trashy. Well more about the characters to be so trashy. So maybe that’s what turned me off about it. I really wanted to like Sophie, but at the same time I think she deserves what she got. She actively knew what she was getting into herself and every time she is says she would stop. So that fact that she was so aware of her own actions makes me not like her. I kept thinking to myself, maybe there is something more deep rooted? And oh gosh the wives are just gross.
Molly is not like everyone else. She has a hard time understanding social cues and misinterpret the intentions of others. Her gran used to interpret the world for her, but unfortunate her gran recently past away. Molly has been navigating the complexity of life. She has a unique characteristic and is obsessed with cleaning and proper etiquette – which makes her the perfect maid. She’s a maid at the prestigious Regency Grand Hotel. Everything seems to be orderly until Molly discovered the wealthy Charles Black dead in his suite. Because of Molly’s unusual demeanor, she became the police’s lead suspect. Molly quickly gets herself caught in a web of deception. Fortunately, she has friends she never knew who are willing to help her and find out what really happened to Mr. Black. But will this be too late for Molly or will the real killer get away?
I was intrigued by this book because I’ve heard it was ‘Clue-like’. It’s been awhile since I’ve read a mystery book that’s not considered a thriller and I was excited to dive into this. At first, I thought it was kinda slow. I already had a good idea about Molly’s character and wanted the mystery to begin! So in my opinion, there was way too much character development for Molly. But once it got past that, then the book felt ‘clue-like’. I was constantly debating who’s the one being deceitful. Everyone was putting on an act and it made it fun. The only part about the mystery that wasn’t fun is how the ‘deceitful’ one was revealed. I don’t want to give it away, but then it made all way to predictable.
