In case you have never heard of the book:
Well, it is an ARC, so I don’t suppose you have as of yet.
The First Mistake addresses the choices you have to make as a wife, a mother, a widow, a business owner, a friend, and an individual. It also discusses the consequences of those choices.
Alice is a mess. She is an interior designer, with a past. But her two kids, her second husband, and her best friend all support her. So, then, what is the problem? Who can she trust? Is her husband cheating? Is her best friend working against her? Is she in danger of falling back into the depression that almost consumed her after her first husband died?
What do you do when your whole life appears to be falling down around you? In Alice’s case, she decides to take her life back.
What did I think of the book:
Okay. So. I have thought about what to say. I don’t want to dissuade anyone from reading this. It is interesting, and suspenseful. I did enjoy it overall. But, in my case, it was very predictable. Except for a few minor details, I predicted the second and third sections in the book pretty accurately. I enjoyed it, but was a little disappointed at the ease with which I was able to determine who was whom and what was what. So, just be aware of that possibility.
If you decide to read it, let me know what you think!!
