I usually love this author’s stuff. Fun and frothy and entertaining. But this book I couldn’t get into. I found it slow to start and the main character was so annoying and useless that I realized I didn’t care to finish this story, which is rare.

I couldn’t get into this. Poorly written and slow moving. The story was forced and the main character was clueless. I don’t recall another adult mystery book ever asking so many obvious, unanswered questions to try and create suspense and mystery.

The Dot story you could tell all along where it was going. But the Eliza portion had me. Including the ending. Really messes with your mind.

The description of this book intrigued me so I downloaded an ARC through NetGalley. Thank you, Atria Books.

This thriller is really a book within a book. Eliza's book "The Dots" is about to be published when she is rescued from the bottom of a pool at a resort in Palm Springs. Did she jump or was she pushed? Why is her memory so spotty? Why does she perceive a presence hovering in the periphery of her vision? All those questions are answered and tied up quite neatly through the book.

Something about this book struck me as off. Perhaps it is the transition from YA to Adult and it is stuck in the middle. There was a lack of maturity to the narrative that for me was distracting and affected my experience.

I was very excited to read this new novel by Sara Shepard! I fell in love with the Pretty Little Liars series. This new novel, "The Elizas" is geared more towards the adult audience, as opposed to her previous novels in the Young Adult genre.

This thriller was easy to get into from the start. The cast of characters are interesting, diverse and relatable. Mysteries and plot twists kept coming and I stayed engaged throughout the story. I honestly didn't see the end coming!

If you are looking for a vacation read, this is a must! I think Sara Shepard did a great job transitioning to adult fiction. I look forward to her next novel!

Thanks to Atria Books and Netgalley for allowing me a free copy to read and give my honest review!
