The Woman Inside by E. G. Scott Book Review

The lowdown from Goodreads

Publication Date January 22, 2019

Rebecca didn’t know love was possible until she met Paul, a successful, charismatic, married man with a past as dark as her own. Their pain drew them together with an irresistible magnetism; they sensed that they were each other’s ideal (and perhaps only) match.
 
But twenty years later, Paul and Rebecca are drowning as the damage and secrets that ignited their love begin to consume their marriage. Paul is cheating on Rebecca, and his affair gets messy fast. His mistress is stalking them with growing audacity when Rebecca discovers Paul’s elaborate plan to build a new life without her. And though Rebecca is spiraling into an opiate addiction, it doesn’t stop her from coming up with a devious plot of her own, and this one could end absolutely everything.
 
What follows is an unpredictable and stylish game of cat and mouse—a shocking tale of unfaithfulness and unreliability that will keep you racing until the final twist and make you wonder how well you really know your spouse.

The Woman Inside by E. G. Scott Book Review

I love reading books written by two authors. Just like anything else in life things are better when we work together, right? Well, let me tell you that E. G. Scott is one hell of a duo.

Alternating Narrators

I sat down to read this book one evening & I could not stop reading. Immediately, the alternating narrators sucked me into the story. As a reader, you quickly learn all is not well with this married couple. The best part is, you’re not sure who to trust. For me, this keeps my eyes wide & keeps me turning the pages at a furious pace. While I’ve said before I’m over the unreliable narrator thing, something about the narration style of The Woman Inside really does it for me.

He Said / She Said

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a domestic thriller with such simmering suspense. You never know what goes on behind closed doors. Well, in the case of Rebecca & Paul, you’re not even sure what’s happening when everything is laid out. It’s nuts in the very best way. For sure, Rebecca’s drug habit contributes to skepticism of her version of events. Meanwhile, Paul is a known cheater, so there’s no way I’m trusting him.
While reading, I found myself completely immersed in their story. Steadily the tension builds. This couple is crazy, but I’m here for it & I want to know all their sordid secrets! Towards the end, I’m caught completely off guard. Then, at the very end, I’m left shaking my head and saying, “Damn, that was a wild ride!”

THE VERDICT

I am Really Into This book! If you’re looking for domestic suspense, here you go! This is a book I’m happy to recommend & would even read again. Here’s hoping it makes it to the screen sometime soon.
