Juliette gets a job as a flight attendant to be close to her ex, Nate, who is a pilot. She has a plan, and she must stick to the plan, otherwise she might not get Nate back. The problem, Nate doesn't want her back, because she is totally psycho.
The characters are not delightful at all. I hated everyone, and those who were even a little developed were not interesting or fulfilling characters. Juliette, or Lily, or Elizabeth, is a narcissist, and nothing she does is reasonable. She is a boring stalker, who doesn't develop any characteristics to recommend her as a character to read this book. There was nothing to make her interesting as a main character, and I was actually bored with her obsession and the reasons for this obsession didn't seem like big enough reasons for her to do everything she has done. There were scenes involving her that didn't make me feel sorry or anything for her. In the beginning we learn that she is with her younger brother, Will, when he drowns in an accident, but this doesn't really get expressed later in the story. When she tells another character about it, it doesn't make any sense why she is telling the story, and there are no reasons for it to be expressed. We also don't get to learn enough about her relationship with her mother, or her aunt Barbara. Nothing is delved into, it is all just surface.
Other characters who could have used more and more interesting development were Nate, the love of Juliette's life, Bella, and Amy... especially Amy, who started out as an interesting friend, and could have been a more interesting character if she had been explored a little more. None of the characters had any redeeming values that made me want to read this book, or care about what happened to them.
I wish I hadn't spent the money on this novel. I usually don't post a review if I hate a book, but this one made me mad. I didn't find any reason to finish it, and wish I hadn't wasted the time. I know there are people who will love this book, just like people loved Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, but I dislike books like this. I want at least one character to root for or enjoy. I want one character who isn't a despicable human being.
I don't recommend this novel, for anyone.
