THE WIFE: For Alice, life has never been better. With her second husband, she has a successful business, two children, and a beautiful house.

HER HUSBAND: Alice knows that life could have been different if her first husband had lived, but Nathan’s arrival into her life gave her back the happiness she craved.

HER BEST FRIEND: Through the ups and downs of life, from celebratory nights out to comforting each other through loss, Alice knows that with her best friend Beth by her side, they can survive anything together. So when Nathan starts acting strangely, Alice turns to Beth for help. But soon, Alice begins to wonder whether her trust has been misplaced . . .

The first mistake could be her last.

The First Mistake is an edge of your seat domestic drama/thriller that had me turning the pages as fast as I could. The book was surprisingly puzzling to me, and thankfully I went into it blind otherwise I think it would have taken away from my reading experience had I already known what was happening going in. I suggest readers who enjoyed The Other Woman (the authors debut novel that released last year) do the same if they plan to read this one!

Without going into plot details (as it would spoil potential readers) I will say that this book consumed me in the best of ways. I love how it is told in alternating POV’s thus allowing us to see all three sides of the issue at hand. This worked really well for me as I didn’t fall for any one particular character. Rather, I was able to take everything in and then judge! Even more, there are enough twists and turns in the story for any reader of the genre! You won’t find this one lacking in that feeling in any way! Kudos to the author for bringing this story to life! 

I recommend this book to those who enjoy domestic drama and thriller novels as well as those who enjoy mysteries and suspense!
