Goodreads Summary: Every Fifteen Minutes 

Dr. Eric Parrish is the Chief of the Psychiatric Unit at Havemeyer General Hospital outside of Philadelphia. Recently separated from his wife, Caitlin, he is doing his best as a single dad to his seven-year-old daughter Hannah. His work seems to be going better than his home life, however. His unit at the hospital has just been named number two in the country and Eric has a devoted staff of doctors and nurses who are as caring as Eric is. But when he takes on a new patient, Eric’s entire world begins to crumble. Seventeen-year-old Max has a terminally ill grandmother and is having trouble handling it. That, plus his OCD and violent thoughts about a girl he likes makes Max a high risk patient. Max can’t turn off the rituals he needs to perform every fifteen minutes that keep him calm. With the pressure mounting, Max just might reach the breaking point. When the girl is found murdered, Max is nowhere to be found. Worried about Max, Eric goes looking for him and puts himself in danger of being seen as a “person of interest”. Next, one of his own staff turns on him in a trumped up charge of sexual harassment. Is this chaos all random? Or is someone systematically trying to destroy Eric’s life?

My Review 3 Stars 

I was a bit disappointed with this book. I was waiting for it to finally end…I hate when that happens.

Halfway through I knew who it was…it just seemed so obvious to me. There were subtle clues and hints, but then towards middle and on the clues became stronger.

I really hated his soon to be ex wife…does it change? You’ll have to read to find out.

The only thing I liked was the fact that you NEVER know who is a sociopath in real life. Who is playing you or is being played. It’s a scary thought…can you really trust anyone?

Spoilers Below – highlight to read

(((((At first it appears to be Sam Ward, one of the other psychiatrists who is the sociopath. Then at the very end, it is revealed that is Lori who was in fact the sociopath, she played Sam…who in turn played Kristen and Max and killed Rene.

The whole time Kaitlin is being a b*tch with custody of their daughter Hannah, finally she comes around in the end and shares custody 50/50. She lets him buy the house and knows Hannah will be better off with her dad in her life.

He gets his job back and takes on full control the way he should have before.)))))

 

 

 ~~~Now I’m Reading~~~


Goodreads Summary: The Pocket Wife

A stylish psychological thriller with the compelling intrigue of The Silent Wife and Turn of Mind and the white-knuckle pacing of Before I Go to Sleep—in which a woman suffering from bipolar disorder cannot remember if she murdered her friend.

Dana Catrell is shocked when her neighbor Celia is brutally murdered. To Dana’s horror, she was the last person to see Celia alive. Suffering from mania, the result of her bipolar disorder, she has troubling holes in her memory, including what happened on the afternoon of Celia’s death.

Her husband’s odd behavior and the probing of Detective Jack Moss create further complications as she searches for answers. The closer she comes to piecing together the shards of her broken memory, the more Dana falls apart. Is there a murderer lurking inside her . . . or is there one out there in the shadows of reality, waiting to strike again?

A story of marriage, murder, and madness, The Pocket Wife explores the world through the foggy lens of a woman on the edge.

Dana keeps counting down to her next mental breakdown. She is seeing things and now someone is threatening her. Is it real or is she doing it to herself.

I have three theories: 1) Her husband killed the neighbor to hide an affair and wants to make Dana think she did and go crazy. 2) The neighbor’s husband did it and wants to make it look like Dana did so he can get away with murder. 3) She’s already insane and stalking and threatening herself. 

I HOPE that the ending lives up to all this suspense and drama.

  1. It’s the worst when you’re waiting on a book to hurry and be over with.. Or when you just don’t care never finish the book. Sometimes quitting a book nags me, I wonder if I should’ve kept going for the “good part”.

    • It’s a toss up, I’ve had to stop reading two books, one from the beginning because the whining was so bad. Reading the other book was too much of a chore.

Would love to read your thoughts
