Title: His & Hers
Author: Alice Feeney
Genre: Mystery Thriller
About the book: It’s a standalone about Anna Andrews who works as a news reporter and is reluctant to cover the murder of a woman. Jack Harper is the detective in charge of the case until he becomes a suspect in his own investigation. There are two sides to every story, and someone isn’t telling the truth.
First impressions: The premise sounded interesting, so I was curious to see how the plot would play out. It alternates between Anna’s and Jack’s point of view.
Characters: The novel mainly follows Anna and Jack. They have flaws, but I liked learning more about them through their backstory. I think the author did a good job developing the characters.
“Sometimes you have to lose a lot to remember how much you have.”
Writing: It’s a little over 375 pages with short, suspenseful chapters. The book went in a different direction than I expected, but I enjoyed following along. There are sensitive scenes that contain mature content not suitable for younger readers. As with many thrillers, readers have to suspend disbelief at times. That said, I still found it to be a fun read. Feeney includes many red herrings to make it tougher to predict the ending.
Final thoughts: Everything is explained at the end. The twists and turns kept me wanting to turn the pages. I thought I figured out who did it, but the big reveal took me by surprise. It’s not the most realistic story, but I was still entertained along the way. If you enjoy dual POVs about a murder mystery, I would recommend checking out His & Hers.
