About the Book:
Think you know the person you married? Think again…

Things have been wrong with Mr and Mrs Wright for a long time. When Adam and Amelia win a weekend away to Scotland, it might be just what their marriage needs. Self-confessed workaholic and screenwriter Adam Wright has lived with face blindness his whole life. He can’t recognize friends or family, or even his own wife.

Every anniversary the couple exchange traditional gifts – paper, cotton, pottery, tin – and each year Adam’s wife writes him a letter that she never lets him read. Until now. They both know this weekend will make or break their marriage, but they didn’t randomly win this trip. One of them is lying, and someone doesn’t want them to live happily ever after.

Ten years of marriage. Ten years of secrets. And an anniversary they will never forget.

Rock Paper Scissors is the latest exciting domestic thriller from the queen of the killer twist, New York Times bestselling author Alice Feeney.

My Review:

I read His and Hers last year and was floored by the twists in the book.  I was really excited to pick up Feeney’s latest to see if I would be as impressed by this one.  My library had the audiobook so I patiently waited for 6 weeks until it was my turn to check it out.

Just as in His and Hers, there were plenty of twists that had me thinking, ‘ohhhhh there it is! I was waiting for it to get here and it did not disappoint!’

Such fun. I love her writing style. I loved the atmospheric creepiness of this story and all of the twists of course.  But I really didn’t like the characters. Not any of them.  So I was lacking the connection with anyone in the book which actually lessened my pleasure in reading.

Don’t get me wrong, if you like Thrillers, this is a good one to read and I will definitely recommend it for its fun twists. But I’m only rating it a 3 (ok maybe a 3.5) as by the time I got done, I didn’t really care about any of the characters, but still really liked the story.
