Book Review: Fool Me Once


Goodreads Summary: Fool Me Once (Audible)

In the course of eight consecutive #1 New York Times bestsellers, millions of readers have discovered Harlan Coben’s page-turning thrillers, filled with his trademark edge-of-your-seat suspense and gut-wrenching emotion. In Fool Me Once, Coben once again outdoes himself.

Former special ops pilot Maya, home from the war, sees an unthinkable image captured by her nanny cam while she is at work: her two-year-old daughter playing with Maya’s husband, Joe—who had been brutally murdered two weeks earlier. The provocative question at the heart of the mystery: Can you believe everything you see with your own eyes, even when you desperately want to? To find the answer, Maya must finally come to terms with deep secrets and deceit in her own past before she can face the unbelievable truth about her husband—and herself.



I thought this was gong in one direction, then bam a twist. 

Though there were little clues I picked up on and had a feeling we were being mislead.

I love Harlen Coben, but I think I went in expecting to be fooled,  so I wasn’t too surprised by the ending. 

HIGHLIGHT FOR SPOILERS ((((It was Maya who killed Joe,  she found out he tortured and killed her sister. Joe wasn’t on the nanny cam, it was a whole scam by his family to get her to confess. But with Maya looking into Claire and Joe’s deaths,  She found out that Joe killed his own brother as well…he was pretty fucked up.   His family is evil and involved in drug company scams. She wanted them to be punished, but knew they would kill her, but it was all caught on a live-feed on the nanny cam. They would never have a hand in raising her child and make his as messed up as they were.  

She gave custody of her daughter to her brother in law, Eddie, and Shane remained in Lily’s life.)))))

Goodreads Summary: The Wedding Dress (Audible)

Four brides. One Dress.

A tale of faith, redemption, and timeless love.

Charlotte owns a chic Birmingham bridal boutique. Dressing brides for their big day is her gift . . . and her passion. But with her own wedding day approaching, why can’t she find the perfect dress…or feel certain she should marry Tim?

Then Charlotte discovers a vintage dress in a battered trunk at an estate sale. It looks brand-new-shimmering with pearls and satin, hand-stitched and timeless in its design. But where did it come from? Who wore it? Who welded the lock shut and tucked the dog tags in that little sachet? Who left it in the basement for a ten-year-old girl? And what about the mysterious man in the purple vest who insists the dress had been “redeemed.”

Charlotte’s search for the gown’s history-and its new bride-begins as a distraction from her sputtering love life. But it takes on a life of its own as she comes to know the women who have worn the dress. Emily from 1912. Mary Grace from 1939. Hillary from 1968. Each with her own story of promise, pain, and destiny. And each with something unique to share. For woven within the threads of the beautiful hundred-year-old gown is the truth about Charlotte’s heritage, the power of courage and faith, and the timeless beauty of finding true love.

This sounds like a beautiful book, it got great reviews, so I am hopeful I’ll love it.
