Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney
Ten years of marriage.
Ten years of secrets.
An anniversary they’ll never forget.
Adam and Amelia are spending the weekend in the Scottish Highlands. The remote location is perfect for what they have planned.
But when their romantic trip takes a dark turn, they both start to wonder – can they trust the one they’re with?
Because every couple tells little white lies. Only for Adam and Amelia, the truth is far more dangerous.
I can only give a very brief review of this one, it’s a thriller surrounding a married couple going away to fix their marriage in a remote location (I rolled my eyes too) and it is my first Feeney book though His & Hers has been on my shelf a while after I saw a few good reviews
I always struggle to review thrillers for fear of spoiling anything. I find them frustrating when they have too many obvious plot points and twists – Rock Paper Scissors wasn’t too bad, I wanted a quick engaging read and that is what I got. I didn’t expect a masterpiece, I wanted immediate entertainment that I didn’t need to think too much about and that I could just leave once I’d finished.
I read it in two sittings. Which is quick for me. I wanted to know everything and even though the narrators were all unreliable and caused a few more dramatic eye rolls, I definitely got pulled in all the way through which is a win for me right now. I enjoyed the guessing and I’m definitely going to pick up Feeney’s other books but, as I’m not a thriller lover – they will be from the library or second hand/borrowed and if they are as creepy as this one occasionally was I’ll be reading them in the day time.
So there you have it – two very different books today but both enjoyable for different reasons! Let me know if you have these or if you’re going to grab them and thank you to HQ for the physical copy of Rock Paper Scissors and the e-arc of Did You Miss Me? Via Netgalley.
