not bad bad but also im not quite sure about the writing or developing of the whole thing. It was just like someone writing a really long anecdote in a magazine lol? entertaining but I won't remember a single thing about it tomorrow.

This story really grabbed my attention. The ending was exactly what I wanted it to be (but also leaves room for the reader to guess what happens next!) I would have loved if she worked it out with her husband but I’m glad Ava found herself through her crazy scheming.

dang i’ve been giving out a ton of high ratings lately, but i’ve been having a TIME with these great reads! 

we love a villain, man, and when you have line writing that really sings, it’s just the cherry on top. this expertly had me questioning and guessing what would happen next, but i was never lost — only delighted.

i love the author’s use of on identity here, too — it’s part of the art.
