What kind of reviews make you want to read a book the most? For me, nothing peaks my interest more than a mixed review. 😂🤷🏻‍♀️. So when @perpetualpageturner posted her review with mixed feelings on “The Au Pair” last month I picked the copy I had on my shelf up immediately. 😂. Her thoughts had me super intrigued. (Thank you to @berkleypub for gifting me this copy) . FOR REASONS I can see why the way this book ended could get some major side eye. But for whatever reason, when it came to the main reveal, I decided that this time I was just going to go with it. I felt like I could suspend enough disbelief to go along with it, especially since I had been enjoying the book. But there was one side plot that I felt wasn’t resolved enough for me. And of all the twists and turns in this book, that ended up being the thing I wanted to know the most about!! . So I’m on the mixed review train now, but in the kind of way that I’d pick this for a book club to talk about it. Also, I’m someone who enjoys thrillers, but nothing TOO scary (like ruin my life or make it so I’ll never let my daughter go on Spring Break) This one, despite some of my issues with the ending, hit a good balance of intrigue, mystery, and story for me. . Synopsis: The day that twins Seraphine and Danny Mayes were born, their mother threw herself from the cliffs, the au pair fled, and the gossip in the small village went wild. Now an adult, Seraphine is mourning the recent death of her father. While going through his belonging she finds a family photograph that raises some dangerous questions. Taken the day the twins were born and before her mother’s suicide—Seraphine sees that her mother is holding only one baby. Who is the baby and what really happened that day. And only one person knows the truth. . . #theaupair #EmmaRous #thriller #suspense #crimefiction #thrillerbooks #bookrecommendation #bookclub #bookflatlay #hygge #flatlaystyle #fromabove #cosyvibes #cozyliving #themagicofbookstagram #amreading #bookreview #bookreviewer
