Title: Got You Back
Author: Jane Fallon
Two women seek revenge on the man who has wronged them. Stephanie discovers a text message from a mystery woman on her husband James’ cell phone. The other woman, Katie, is just as surprised to learn of Stephanie’s existence. Now the two are teaming up to teach James a lesson.
Got You Back is an easy read which didn’t overly excite me but was quite entertaining.
The synopsis sounded great – I think it’s always quite fun to read about some revenge served up cold to a cheating partner – and the novel satisfied that to some extent, but it wasn’t as exciting as I thought it would be. I wanted more of a ‘smack-you-in-the-face’ resolution or perhaps some kind of unexpected event or twist to make me go ‘wow!’, but it was just a little lacking. Maybe I just expected a different kind of novel. The characters were interesting enough but I just wasn’t hugely engrossed in the story – basically it was okay, but not great.
The narration, however, was quite engaging and I would still read other books by Jane Fallon in the future, as I’ve heard good things about her other novels!
