 The Vacation

Type: Thriller, Mystery 
Pages: 374
Rating: 3/5
Method Read: Physical

A group of families go on nice relaxing vacation together. Four women have been friends for ages and travel to a nice villa in France. Upon arrival, Kate discovers that her husband might be having an affair with one of the best friends. As Kate tries to get to the truth, it seems like one of her friends is hiding a terrible secret and is willing to kill to keep it from getting out.

Things I liked:
1. There were a lot of characters in this book but they were easy to keep track of and the author did a great job bringing out their personalities.
2. I really enjoy stories told in multiple points of view. The author does this beautifully. He truly captures how I feel some of these characters would act (when it comes to their age) and how they would talk based on their respective ages.

Things I didn’t like:
1. The story isn’t super exciting. I felt like it took awhile to get the story going. Kate spends most of the book playing detective searching for clues to figure out which one of her friends is having an affair with her husband. She analyzes all her friends actions and movements.
2. If you couldn’t tell, I found Kate’s character to be annoying. She wasn’t likeable at all. I found myself hoping the worst for her.

Overall, I’m pretty disappointed. I read another book by this author, Lies, and I loved it. This one fell way short for me.
