ROCK PAPER SCISSORS – Alice Feeney (Released September 7th, 2021)
You can see my thoughts on her other books here: SOMETIMES I LIE (here), I KNOW WHO YOU ARE (here), and HIS & HERS (here)
Think you know the person you married? Think again…
Things have been wrong with Mr and Mrs Wright for a long time. When Adam and Amelia win a weekend away to Scotland, it might be just what their marriage needs. Self-confessed workaholic and screenwriter Adam Wright has lived with face blindness his whole life. He can’t recognize friends or family, or even his own wife.
Every anniversary the couple exchange traditional gifts – paper, cotton, pottery, tin – and each year Adam’s wife writes him a letter that she never lets him read. Until now. They both know this weekend will make or break their marriage, but they didn’t randomly win this trip. One of them is lying, and someone doesn’t want them to live happily ever after.
Ten years of marriage. Ten years of secrets. And an anniversary they will never forget.
My Thoughts: 3/5 stars
I’ve been hooked on Alice Feeney’s books since picking up SOMETIMES I LIE a few years ago, so needless to say there are definitely some expectations set when starting another one of her books. ROCK PAPER SCISSORS was little different than her others. It had a slower pacing to it for the majority of the book, which I struggled with at times, but I know that there’s usually one hell of a twist in her books so I kept going. That ending made it so worth continuing. There were some aspects I really enjoyed and others I’m just more middle ground on. I know this is a very vague review at best, but I think the synopsis gives the perfect amount of information and I don’t want to risk spoiling anything. This is one of those suspense books that is better going into with less information. From what I’ve seen, I’m definitely in the minority on this one and there are plenty of glowing reviews out there, so I still recommend giving this one a try.
