Synopsis (From Goodreads)
She wanted to be more daring, but one small risk is about to cost her everything—maybe even her life.
Bold and adventurous in her work as owner of one of Manhattan’s boutique interior design firms, Kit Finn couldn’t be tamer in her personal life. While on vacation in the Florida Keys, Kit resolves to do something risky for once. When she literally bumps into a charming stranger at her hotel, she decides to make good on her promise and act on her attraction. But back in New York, when Kit arrives at his luxury apartment ready to pick up where they left off in the Keys, she doesn’t recognize the man standing on the other side of the door. Was this a cruel joke or part of something truly sinister? Kit soon realizes that she’s been thrown into a treacherous plot, which is both deeper and deadlier than she could have ever imagined. Now the only way to protect herself, her business, and the people she loves is to find out the true identity of the man who has turned her life upside down. Adrenaline-charged and filled with harrowing twists at every turn, The Wrong Man will keep readers riveted until the final page.
Okay so this was a pretty good book. I’ll start with what I didn’t like.
I didn’t like the writing style. I felt it was a little all over the place, with no distinction between time and very little between events. The chapter endings were a little odd as well. The chapter would often end in the middle of a conversation or event, and then the beginning of the next chapter would just continue from that point on. All in all it took me a little while to get comfortable with the writing style. It helped A LOT that I was absolutely invested in the mystery.
Oh My Goodness can Kate White write a mystery! I was intrigued pretty much from the get go! Obviously this is the portion where I tell you about what I liked. There were so many twists, and WTF’s, that I was unsure what was going to happen; and I LOVED that! I felt that the MC handled everything really well but was also very believable in her reactions.
I give this a 3.5 stars because I REALLY liked it, but the writing style was a little off putting for me. Ms. White lucked out with a phenomenal plot or I might have DNFed it!
