A raging snowstorm. An ancient chapel in the Scottish Highlands. A menacing face in a window. Amelia and Adam have different reasons for spending their anniversary in such a bleak setting. Neither are happy. It’s Rock Paper Scissors to determine who will achieve their ultimate holiday goal.
This book has a deliciously creepy setup. A screenwriter husband who cannot recognize faces and finds more happiness with his work than his home life. A lonely wife who is unhappy with her workaholic husband. An anniversary alone in an isolated decrepit residence with no cell service amid a snowstorm. What could go wrong?
The less you know about this book before reading it, the more fun you will have. The plot devices keep the story interesting and different from most domestic suspense thrillers. The tale is told from the first-person perspectives of both the husband and wife. The wife also includes her annual unsent letters to her husband about their marriage. Hint: It is going severely downhill after ten years. There are also third person reports from nosy chapel neighbor, Robin.
I had great fun reading Rock Paper Scissors. Trying to see where the plot is going is almost impossible due its many twists and turns. 5 stars!
Thanks to Flatiron Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
