  1. I have read a few of the ones you said were worth the hype, but I haven’t read any of the ones you have in the not-worth list.

    THE HIGH TIDE CLUB was FAB, and it was my first book by her. 🙂

    I actually was confused with THE WIFE BETWEEN US, but it was good. I just finished their second book. I have to say that AN ANONYMOUS GIRL was much better for me even though the main character was EVIL.


    Thanks for this terrific post, Tamara, and for this month of fun.

    I haven’t heard of a lot of your books but I LOVED The Wife Between Us. It’s so funny to me how individualized reading is — some of your books I’ve seen on other people’s blogs but on the other list (The Wife Between Us, All We Ever Wanted, The Summer Wives).

    • Reading is SO subjective, y’know… Like I just love stories like The Wife Between Us. I really like that suspense/domestic drama/psych thriller genre! But I def saw some people like “ugh” about it. Different books for different folks!
