Behind Her Eyes is one of the best thrillers I have read this year and I can’t believe I got this from Book of the Month Club back in February and am just now reading it!! I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars!
Louise is a single mom who gets herself into one heck of a mess with David and Adele, a married couple. She meets David in a club where they flirt, only to find out he is her new boss. Not long after, she bumps into a woman on the street and an unlikely friendship begins. This new friend is Adele, David’s wife. As Louise carries on simultaneous but secret relationships with each David and Adele, she starts to see that their marriage is not a conventional one. She begins to worry that David may be too controlling over Adele and treating her abusively. Louise finally starts looking for answers about the couple and their mysterious past and is shocked at what she finds.
Not only was this a compelling thriller that kept me turning page after page, the ending is the twist of all twists! This book has one of the best endings I’ve read in a very long time and I just absolutely loved it! My only critique is that the plot did slow down and get slightly redundant in the middle, but overall this was a great thriller! If you are a BoTM member, you may want to consider adding this from their back catalogs next month!
