    22. A twisted tale From the moment we enter Before I Met Her we are in the mind of the protagonist with the edgy feeling of a Du Maurier novel Not Rebecca where we trust the narrator implicitly, but My Cousin Rachel, perhaps, because from the outset we have little chance to trust our heroine Before Emma met her favourite authoress, her life seemed good A happy marriage to a brilliant man, and a successful store which indulged her passion for luxury Then she meets Beatrice Hodgson Greene and we see t [...]

    25. I was pretty skeptical of this book, given that it appears to be self published, but was pleasantly surprised Very readable, well written, not terribly copy edited though there are typos throughout , and a compelling story I always say I will write a novel someday, so the focus on the process of writing and publishing was attractive to me And, it s a murder mystery Fun read

    26. Emma s husband is a condescending asshat Emma s BFF is using her Emma is a doormatuntil she decides that it s time to take control of her life and possibly commit some felonies in the process I started reading this book four hours ago and read it in one sitting Yes, I believe that in general murder is bad, but let s all be grown ups here and admit that some people s deaths would be no huge loss to society ahem Donald Trump, George Zimmerman, Kanye , and everyone has that secret personal hit list [...]

    28. I have mixed feelings about Until I Met Her This book intrigued me with the opening pages taking place at Beatrice Johnson Greene s funeral, but shortly after the initial interest faded, I was filled with annoyance and hatred for the characters Emma truly was a puppy and her lack of confidence and self worth in her relationships made my blood boil I hated Beatrice s pompous attitude and disregard for other human s emotions Jim Fern was just a textbook shitty husband My intense feelings of the ch [...]

    29. I finally got to read this and it was VERY good Once I started, I couldn t put it down and finished it in one day I loved Emma s character, a bit snarky with an attitude and I couldn t help but like her Just what is Beatrice up to and why Very intriguing, I had to know This was fast paced and kept me entertained until the very end Loved that ending by the way Now I HAVE to get book number 2, After He Killed Me Maybe there is a benefit to just now having read this because now I don t have to wait [...]
