The murder mystery starts intruguing enough, but by the half-mark or at least a quarter to the end, the plot twist wasn't that hard to figure it out. I like how the unreliable narrator is used effectively in this book, but also enough of clues to point you to the killer/murderer.

It was engaging and excellent use of the unreliable narrator trope, which kept me engrossed. Some characters are more likeable than others. The most interesting part of the novel is the unlikely Swedish justice system, for me.

I received this book as an Advance Reader Copy from @CeladonBooks. I would first like to thank them for that opportunity.

This book is told in 3 parts - first from the father's point of view, then the daughter's and finally from the mother. The father, Adam, is a pastor and Ulrika is his wife (an attorney). They are the parents of Stella, who is 18 and accused of the murder of a man almost 15 years older than her.

All versions of the story cast doubt as to whether or not Stella actually committed the murder but it also shows how her parents ethics were tested while they struggle to understand how and why she was accused of a murder they feel she isn't capable of. This book asks the question "How far would you go to protect your child(ren)?"

Definitely an intriguing read and well-told story. I like the three-part structure of the story but was found that I was wanting more of each person's story before moving on to the next version.

Book Review: The Woman Inside

Thank you @netgalley for this ARC

The Rytters are a wealthy couple with dark secrets how are murdered in their mansion. They hired a new maid, Karla who is a struggling law student who hopes to be a judge one day. Karla gets involve with Bill, a single father with a daughter named Sally. Bill has made some bad decisions but he knows his best ever was his daughter. Karla rents a room from Bill. She eventually takes pity on Bill and eventually starts helping with his daughter.

Karla becomes a person of interest in the murders just as Bill does because of his proximity to Karla. Jennifer is another character that finds herself in this investigation as Jennifer is a friend of Bill's deceased wife and is also connected to the Rytters. As the story unfolds the read gets three different perspectives.

There are so many subplots to this book that it gets confusing at times. Will the murderer be found and will it be one of the three, some other person or even a murder/suicide? I found the book to be a weak mystery and just an ok read.
