What did you like about the book? Oh Boy, what a story! Louise is divorced with a six-year-old son, Adam, and working three days per week as the secretary at a psychiatry office. She meets David at a bar, they share a kiss – and she discovers he is her new boss! Adele, David’s wife, connives to meet and befriend Louise who begins a sexual relationship with David. So Louise is friends with Adele while sleeping with her husband. It keeps getting more and more complicated with Louise who keeps trying to do the “right” thing. Is David crazy and/or a murderer – or is Adele crazy and/or a murderer? Yes, the ending unbelievable – horrible but satisfying in a macabre way.
