I read this as an audiobook and thoroughly enjoyed it. I liked the flipped format of both not knowing who the killer was, or the one who was going to be murdered.

There were so many terribly (great) lines about death that couldn't make me laugh but did, it was a real killer, if you will. If you like housewives vibes and murder, this one is for you!

I saw this book described as Desperate Housewives meets Big Little Lies and was immediately intrigued. And, indeed, I really enjoyed the drama, the pettiness, and the manipulation. However, I think presenting this as a thriller is not the way to go. If you’re looking for a standard thriller, I would look elsewhere. If, however, you’re looking for a book about rich women and their social lives like I was, then give this book a try!

The plot was intriguing enough but I felt there was *a lot* of buildup for a very rushed climax that happened mostly off page.

I feel like the book could have been shorter, there was a good amount that didn’t feel like it would have made a difference in the end if it was taken out. In a way the ending wasn’t very satisfying and it made the characters who should have been likable unlikable.
