Ebook review: Rachel’s Folly by Monica Bruno

From the dust cover: “She has it all: a successful career, a beautiful house, a loving husband, and a son she adores. To top it off, her best friend is getting married. But who is this mysterious man who calls himself Jack and, more importantly, who is Rachel when she’s with him? After a night of drinking gone awry, Rachel is forced to face a dark part of herself she didn’t know existed. She must find a way to cope—with what she’s done, with the kind of person she might be—or lose her life in the process.

Told from three unique perspectives and set against the backdrop of an Austin, Texas both strange and familiar, Rachel’s Folly is an exploration of profound loss, morality, and the lengths to which we will go to save our loved ones and ourselves . . . from ourselves.”

From the author: “A few words of caution: it is by no means erotica, but it does include two sex scenes (non-explicit). It also has occasional profanity (used judiciously). And, one of the main characters just happens to be gay.”

My Ebook review: this is a very well executed thriller, the characters are interesting, well developed and used effectively to create a book that does keep the reader guessing until the end.

I personally hate spoilers which means that I often need to write very short reviews on some books. For me I thought suspiciously about one character for quite a while and happily was proved to be wrong, so the story kept its intensity for a good long time.

There are a number of layers to the plot which are kept neatly under control and used in a way to develop the plot rather than confuse the reader.

Did I enjoy it?: definitely an enjoyable reading experience and I could certainly imagine reading the next Bruno novel.
