First comes love. Then comes murder.
Lucas Forester didn’t hate his wife. Michelle was brilliant, sophisticated and beautiful. Sure, she had extravagant spending habits and that petty attitude, a total disregard for anyone below her status. But she also had a lot to offer. Most notably, wealth that only the one percent could comprehend.
For years, Lucas had been honing a flawless plan to inherit Michelle’s fortune. Unfortunately, it involved taking a hit out on her.
Every track was covered, no trace left behind, and now Lucas plays the grieving husband so well he deserves an award. But when a shocking photo and cryptic note show up on his doorstep, Lucas goes from hunter to prey.
Someone is onto him. And they’re closing in.
Told with dark wit and a sharply feminist sensibility, Never Coming Home is a terrifying tale of duplicity that will have you side-eyeing your spouse as you dash to the breathtaking end.

I love getting the villain’s perspective. It’s so interesting to read about what is going through their minds and the reasons for their actions.
I really liked Lucas and you could somewhat justify his previous actions (to a point!). I was intrigued on all of the planning he did and the steps that he took to make sure that the police didn’t dig too deep into him (but isn’t it always the husband?!).
Just over halfway is where the novel starting to lose me. Even though I did enjoy seeing Lucas fall apart when his well laid out plans turned out not to be foolproof, I wasn’t a fan of Lucas’s past coming back to haunt him. It seemed out of place and I was more interested in the current day saga. Sadly, the twist ending was one that I saw coming from the very beginning.
3 calculators out of a potential 5. An enjoyable read from the villain’s eyes.
Thank you to Netgallery and Harlequin Trade Publishing, MIRA for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I think I liked this one more than you did, Amanda. I agree, the vllain’s POV was entertaining.
