Desperate Housewives used to be one of my favourite shows. All the intrigue, mystery, gossiping was just so delicious, but it also had a good dose of friendship drama. This book reminded me of it.
Not That I Could Tell by Jessica Strawser
Genres: Mystery, Fiction
Published: 27th March, 2018
Not That I Could Tell has been categorized as a thriller. It isn’t. It has an element of mystery with a woman gone missing, but it’s more a story about those who were left behind. The neighbours, the friends, even the strangers who didn’t even know Kristin before her disappearance are all affected one way or another. Or at least have an opinion.
Izzy, Clara, Rhoda and Randi were all friends with the woman who is now the main focus of the news and all the small town rumours and speculations. But did they really know her at all? These four women all have a story of their own, and battles that need to be fought. Is it possible they were so caught up in their own drama that they missed some warning signs? What is really going on here?
In the wake of the sudden disappearance new friendships form, alliances shift, a precocious 12-year-old goes on a mission and some shady dealings are exposed, but it’s all kind of light and breezy.
Did I mention the drama?!
I loved all the different perspective of these ladies, and how they saw the same event through their own filters. How is a marriage affected when the spouses don’t see eye to eye on something that is clearly so important for one of them? Can you tolerate an opinion that may be true but paints your friend in a negative light? Just because everyone points a finger at someone, does it mean they have done something bad?
Well, grab your popcorn, and find out!
