Not my cup of tea.
I found the plot boring. The characters weak (as in spineless) and unrealistic. Elizabella (...that name...*sigh*) was a spoiled brat and Veronica was so spineless she was letting her 3 year old run the show.
What drew me to this book was the character going for fertility treatments, as someone who also suffers from infertility and had to get treatments as well (though it was minor treatment, compared to IVF) I was kind of excited to read about a kindred spirit of sorts...but ...more
Not my favorite kind of book, the story meandered and I just could not get into it. I am glad I got it for free for my March Amazon Prime pick. I am sorry I could not like this book more. The characters all grated on me and I could not feel even empathy for the main character when she has lost the "love of her life". I would give the author another chance it is just this book had way too much going on it for me to truly enjoy it.
Great read on a cold, snowy night
I read several reviews before selecting this book. Most of the reviews were positive while many did not have one good word to say. I took my chances and decided to give the book a read. I was not sorry one little bit. There were a few unbelievable plot twists, all in all I was able to overlook them and move forward to enjoy a great story that had me guessing and changing my predictions with each new bit of information gathered in each chapter. I would recommend t ...more
Trespassing is an eerie, surprising, slow burn that kept me reading even while my eyes were begging to close.
Early on, I worried this would be a storyline of which I've grown weary, with a naive woman duped by her lying and controlling husband. But this story takes us to totally unexpected places, and it's not at all a rehashed version of the stereotypical duped housewife.
The writing is exceptional. I felt the emotional pull; the confusion, the anxiety, the fear. Because Veronica is narrating, h ...more
When I was more than halfway through the book sometime last night, there were a grand total of zero reviews for this book on Goodreads. I received this for free as my choice of Amazon First Reads for the month of March, so I went back to Amazon to see the reviews there. Total of two. A few more have trickled in since then, but I have never been one of the first people to review a book before. This is exciting and a bit scary.
In "Trespassing", Veronica and Micah are parents of a toddler and tryi ...more
I do like books like this – A LOT. It nurtures suspicion to perfection by playing on a person’s anxiety, leading them head-first into an unknown they didn’t think was possible.
It takes several assured steps away from any run-of-the-mill ‘psychological domestic drama’, at least in my humble opinion. It didn’t miss a beat, especially when doubt and fear cast long shadows over our leading lady’s life. And her daughter’s imaginary friend is quite unsettling at times!
Given her familial history and th ...more
Trespassing is one of the better psychological thrillers I’ve read in the recent times. I got it on my prime first reads this month. I started reading it as a part of my regular bed time routine, the two chapters a night sort of thing and ended up staying up till about 3:00 in the morning. I lay awake for a long time because I was terrified to sleep. This book can truly make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Having said that, I give it a 4 star because of two reasons. The first one bei ...more
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ i received this book through Amazon first reads and had it not been free, I would have GLADLY purchased it! I have seen reviews saying this is a slow burn but for me it was much different. I read it in one day and could not put it down! It’s hard to believe this is the authors debut psychological thriller. While this is not a huge shock and awe conclusion, it is every bit as satisfying and kept me glued to the pages. Loved this book so much and will definitely look for more from this a ...more
