Second Life

Book: Second Life
Author:  SJ Watson

She loves her husband. She's obsessed by a stranger.

She's a devoted mother. She's prepared to lose everything.

She knows what she's doing. She's out of control.

She's innocent. She's guilty as sin.

She's living two lives. She might lose both . . .-Goodreads

Review: After Julia's sister is murdered, she decides to investigate using her sister's profile on dating websites. Julia quickly jeopardizes her marriage and sobriety when she starts up an online relationship.
This was slow and boring. Julia was incredibly unlikable and should have been way more internet savvy given her age (late 30s). I'm pretty sure my grandpa (who is in his 80s) is more astute than how she was written. Parts of the plot were predictable and the ending was not tied up in a red bow, which will frustrate many readers.

Grade: 1/5
