A masterful page-turner
I couldn’t put this book down. I loved the characters, the suspense, and the important viewpoints. The writing is superb. I was happy to learn about things I’ve never known and see the world from the perspective of a black woman. It was shocking, eye-opening and powerful. It was brilliant and I didn’t want it to end. Instant-buy author!

Stepford Wives meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Brilliant. First heard Audible version very good and liked it so much read ebook version. Can’t wait for film version and also more books from this author.
Not very good
By Dat man72
Would not recommend this book. The writing was not focused. A million different characters and no clear direction. Very disappointed, it could have been much better if the author stayed focused. Good theme, bad story telling…
What on earth was that?
The beginning of the book had so much promise. I’d hoped for insight and entertainment. By the end, I couldn’t stop rolling my eyes and wondering 1) if it would somehow get better and 2) when would I finally be done. Such a disappointment.
Just Missed The Mark
While I totally get what the author trying to do, like creating a satire/mystery, I feel like she missed the mark. The main character Nella, is just not developed enough for us to understand her logic and her responses to just about everything. The other plot that involves a decades olds situation could have been beefed up more, as that backstory was actually more interesting than Nella’s main issues.
