REVIEW: Someone Else’s Life

In the middle of an epic storm in Kauai, a stranded motorist knocks on Annie’s door. She lets the woman in to wait out the storm and after a few glasses of wine begins to wonder if this woman may have other motives. Both women’s pasts are slowly revealed as the storm rages outside and the tension and suspicion heightens with every page.

I want to say that it’s hard to believe that someone would so easily let a stranger into their life in one afternoon, but I’ve seen this with people I know and this book is exactly why. You never know a stranger’s motives and in this case for a good portion of this book, I doubted Annie’s reliability as a narrator. That coupled with the danger of the storm made for a compelling page turner. I was hoping the ending would have a more sinister twist, it hints at it but I wish it had fully gone for it.
