About this deal

However, if you are looking for a dark, edgy read but are put off by the lack of depth in this one - try The Butterfly Garden instead.

I have nothing but contempt for men who are found to be violent towards their wives,' Jack says firmly. And if you're wondering how someone like Grace Angel was able to survive her ordeal without succumbing to insanity, derangement or perhaps even suicide, I implore you to look into the case of Bowe Bergdahl. The book is written in first person, jumping between first-person present and first-person past in alternating chapters.Even if the story is about a married couple, the story doesn’t have any romance, which was fine by me. Though she attempts to drop hints that Jack is a crazy person, and has even tried to yell for help in the supermarket, she has stopped those pleas for assistance from the outside world because Jack has told the police and her doctors that she is mentally unstable. I couldn’t wrap my mind around how Grace was going to get herself out of the situation she was trapped in. I don’t know what this says about me, but I was kind of disappointed that we never truly got to see what Jack was capable of.

She had recently learnt to waltz and, as she danced, she stretched her arms out in front of her, as if she was dancing with someone. There are also tiny sugar peas, which I plunged into boiling water just before taking the beef from the oven. Millie had been dancing when no one else was, pretending to have a partner, until Jack came to the rescue. In another book I read two years ago ---One of my personal favorites about two aging Gay men --after WWII --"Hide" by Matthew Griffin", there is a very tragic accident where a dog is killed --but it was 'not' intentional.I've been travelling to Bangkok for twenty years and if there is a beach there, neither myself nor the locals know of its whereabouts! I'm delighted that you've enjoyed reading my books and thank you for your lovely review of The Therapist on your blog.

In the beginning, I was intrigued by the underlying sense of menace that lurked around the dinner party scene at the start of the novel. it doesnt happen often that i am satisfied with a conclusion to a mystery/thriller, so i am marking this one as a win. Jack insisted on choosing the house himself, telling me it was to be my wedding present, so I saw it for the first time when we came back from our honeymoon.Now -- we, the readers know Jack isn't PERFECT, so we are excited -- on the edge turning pages to find out 'where-the-holes are'. While slightly unbelievable, I would expect more of an investigation obviously, it made me like the story that much more. In a rare moment alone with Millie in a restaurant bathroom, Grace finds out that Jack pushed Millie down the stairs at their wedding, and that Millie thinks that “Jack [is] a bad man” (164). Just thinking of the garden makes tears well up from deep inside me and I swallow them down quickly. He wins her over when he saves an awkward moment—dancing the waltz at the park bandstand with Grace’s sister, Millie, who has Down Syndrome.
