Don't fall asleep
I I made the fatal mistake of assuming it was rubbish the first time I watched it. And then realised I must have fallen asleep for 20mins or so.
It's actually pretty good, just not as good as DOFP.

The first mistake could be her last.

Fairly early on in this book, I assumed that Alice's "first mistake" was her first husband, since when we meet her she's already on her second marriage. Also, the manner in which her first husband died seemed like the perfect scenario for him to actually NOT be dead and to pop up later on. Makes sense, right?

Well....yes and no.

You may think you have things figured out. You don't.
You may think you know who's doing what to whom. You don't.
You may think you know how it's going to end. You don't.

Several times throughout, my assumptions and theories were blown. Not all of them, mind you, because I was definitely right about a few things, but enough of them to make me say, "What? Wait. How?" That first big reveal? OMG WHAT. ?

I liked the alternating POVs from Alice and Beth. It helps to tell a complete story. However, I have to say that I did not like the character of Nathan at all, and was pretty quick to jump on the he's-definitely-cheating-on-her train of thought. (Is he, though?)

I enjoyed the author's first title, The Other Woman, very much, but I think I liked The First Mistake even more. Find out June 11th if you feel the same!
