I have seen that woman before, but where?
That is the question McKenna asked herself when she saw Leah shoot her husband.
Why would she do that? She did say she is the same as me, but what did that mean?
What it meant is that she was an abused wife too and was happy one of them was safe now, but how did Leah know McKenna was abused?
Leah just knew by the few times she passed her home and from what she saw. That still didn’t explain why she would shoot a stranger.
McKenna was actually relieved and was most likely the prime suspect…the spouse always is.
Then something happens that brings these two women who didn’t know each other together again. What could that be?
Ms. Murphy did an amazing job of keeping you guessing and writing a fantastic thriller.
I couldn’t put the book down.
THE FAVOR vividly pictures domestic abuse that these two women are going through and the difficulties of staying in the marriage and the difficulties of leaving no matter what your social status was.
It also addresses to what extremes an abused wife would go to escape, but still keep what really goes on a secret.
Fantastic debut…this is a book thriller fans won’t want to miss. 5/5
This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.
