The Bankers Wife … I will admit I’m struggling to review this book kindly. It was a face paced thriller and there was some beautiful foreshadowing going on but that’s about all it had going for it.
There were several moments where the characters names were interchanged and that mistake drives me bonkers. I mean, I can understand it happening once but after the fourth time I just want to throw my hands up and slam the book down.
My second issue is more about me than the writing and that’s the fact that all of the financial stuff went right over my head. The “meat” of the book just didn’t make a lick of sense to me.
I couldn’t relate at all to the two female lead characters…there wasn’t a lot of depth to either of them. And as far as thrillers go…I predicted the ending very early on … again the foreshadowing was there but maybe it was a bit overstated?
I seem to be in the minority for this book but I’ll give it three stars because someone else might just love the financial aspect of it. I was provided a copy of this book from first to read in exchange for my honest review.
