Kim and I read this one with a couple of our Traveling Sisters while Norma and Lindsay were buried in a coulee with a few other books they are reading. They will be catching up on this one and will be bringing you their reviews once they find some air in that coulee.
The Dead Ex has some intriguing elements here to make for an easy lighter entertaining, drama-packed thriller. It has unreliable interesting characters with unknown connections and a lying, cheating Ex who creates some chaos and disappears leaving questions as to what happened to him.
Jane Corry does a great job here interweaving the characters and their past allowing us to question their connection to each other. We were intrigued right from the start. The pace did change a bit for us in the second half of the story and the drama really started to spike after that final twist came in. None of us saw that twist coming and that did get us talking. I started to get a bit worried that some things were getting caught up in the weeds but in the end, I thought Jane Corry pulled free of the weeds and left nothing tangled. No worries about being left in the weeds with this one. Is that a good thing or not, well that is up to you to decide but don’t forget to come back and let us know. We recommend for readers who like things easy and light yet interesting and suspenseful with some drama.
Thank you to the publisher and Edelweiss who provided me with a copy of this book to read and review.
