His & Hers by Alice Feeney
The ultimate story where nothing is as it seems, His & Hers follows reporter Anna Andrews, and DCI Jack Harper, as they investigate the murder of a young woman. Anna has recently had her dream job pulled from under her when she’s sent on an assignment back to her hometown of Blackdown. When she arrives she discovers that not only is her ex-husband, Jack Harper the detective on the case, but the deceased is someone they have in common, someone Anna never expected to see again. Both Anna and Jack know more than they’re letting on as they try to find the killer before it’s too late.
Told in alternating perspectives, the narration switches between Jack (His), Anna (Hers), and the voice of the killer. I had a hard time getting into the story, but once I did, I was hooked. It took me about 50 pages to get to that point. I ended up picking it up and putting it down over the series of a few weeks before I got to that point. I did not remotely predict the ending. The last ten pages truly threw me for a loop. I had predictions on what the twist would be, but I was completely wrong.
