Dead to Her: A Novel
//Dead To Her// by Sarah Pinborough is a domestic drama set in steamy Savannah, Georgia where the lifestyle of the Old South, including exclusive country and social clubs still exist. Now traveling in this elite circle of power and old money, trophy wife Marcie, has come a long way from the trailer park of her youth. She has everything she ever wanted – a handsome husband, a newly purchased mansion and a credit card with no limit. Despite all that she has, Marcie still believes the other couples view her an outsider. When her husband’s boss returns from a trip abroad with Keisha, a younger and beautiful bride, after a whirlwind romance, Marcie’s insecurities get the better of her as she fears losing the lavish lifestyle she has worked so hard to acquire.
Often readers select books and have expectations based on an author’s previous work, so if you are a fan of Behind Her Eyes you very well could be underwhelmed by this book because there is no “what did I just read” moment. However, if you are looking for a story filled with the drama of the rich and privileged with some racy sex, //Dead To Her// delivers. Unfortunately, there are some unnecessary elements that take away from the flow of the story and while there are a few twists and turns, the unlikeability of the characters makes it difficult for the reader to connect with them and thus the feeling about the outcome is one of indifference.
