    Okay....unreliable narrators (three of them, variously 1st POV throughout the novel), faked deaths, crappy marriages, incest, hidden siblings, etc should have made this book better than it actually was.

    I'm all over about this book. Ultimately, I thought the plot was intriguing, but I hated everyone in it. These people are crazy! If you don't care if you have empathy for anyone, but you really like good twists and turns and slowly learning characters' motivations, this one's for you....

And it's not unusual for Emily to occasionally ask Stephanie to pick up her son after school on the rare day when his after school nanny isn't available.

    Enjoyed this book. But found it quite long winded at times and because of that it seemed to take forever to read. Definately not a book you could sit and read for ages. Good plot and interesting characters, just felt seeing from everyones points of view dragged it on to much...

    I like a good psychological thriller and A Simple Favor came along at a good time for me, having just read a spate of World War II fiction--for review and for pleasure, I wanted something less sad and where I wasn't personally invested in the welfare happiness of the characters. In this book, simila...
