BEST DAY EVER by Kaira Rouda
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
What do you consider to be the perfect day? Well in Karia Rouda’s BEST DAY EVER we follow the family of Paul Strom and what he perceives to be the perfect day. What I loved the most about this book was that it takes place in a 24 hour period. This will be a book I can see readers being divided on, but that’s what keeps things fun with discussions.
Paul Strom is the perfect husband. He has a beautiful house, a quiet lakeside property, an enviable and successful job, and then a loving wife and two sons. As he and his wife, Mia, are on their way to the best day ever that he’s planned for them he notices that she’s being distant. Why would she be? He’s kept his secrets from her and she knows not to defy him, so what’s going on?
This book dives into the mind of a narcissistic sociopath and how he controls everything in his life. This is told completely from Paul’s point of view. It’s always refreshing to read something from just the man’s point of view, especially in thrillers like this when it’s typically from the woman’s perspective (and almost always as the victim). This book was a quick read for me even though it had a slower build to it. The epilogue was great and very thought provoking, I know a lot of other readers liked that the most.
Overall, if you’re looking for a more uniquely paced domestic thriller with a real timeline (all taking place in 24 hours) then this is one that’ll pique your interest! This isn’t the most suspenseful domestic thriller I’ve read, but the sociopath narrator made this to be a creepy read.
Make sure to enter soon! It’s a fantastic read and I flew through this one 🙂
