Book Review: Nevermind Miss Fox by Oliva Glazebrooks

Title: Nevermind Miss Fox 
Author: Oliva Glazebrooks
Year: © 2014 
My Review: ♥♥♥♡♡
Format: ARC; Paperback 
Sources: Giveaway 
Publishers: Little Brown 

A darkly suspenseful novel about a piano teacher, a secret, and a family on the brink of disaster. Clive and Martha have been a couple since they met at university; they now have a young daughter, Eliza, and on the surface, all seems well in their family. Then a woman from their past reappears in their lives: the enigmatic Eliot Fox is Eliza's new piano teacher and young Eliza is charmed. But Eliot Fox knows that Clive has a secret--a secret that he is desperate to ensure Martha never finds out, and that could destroy his perfect family. With shades of Joanna Briscoe, Poppy Adams, and Patricia Highsmith, in prose that is as elegant and vivid as it is surprising, Olivia Glazebrook demonstrates how apparently ordinary lives can contain--or fail to contain--extraordinary acts of destruction.

My Thoughts: 

              Looking at the reviews on goodreads I wasn't sure his would be a great book. This book didntbwant me asking for more but there were just so many times I wanted to love the book even more but I just couldn't fore it on myself. It was okay for me.The writing didn't have me wanting more but it wasn't bad. When I was reading a couple of chapters it was slow but as getting into the middle I realse in most books that's were the good part is. The title didnt have me convince that I would enjoy it but it wasn't half bad. I would love to read more by this author and my opinions might change but for now I wasn't that impressed with the book but I don't think it was a waste but it might open up someone's eye but just not me.
