STAR RATINGS GUIDE
A Game and A Gambit Fit for a Queen
🧡 This plot is not a game of cat and mouse. It is a chess match between two worthy opponents. When Holly’s husband flips from charming to controlling and abusive, the new mother uses her wits in her fight to escape. And I love her for it.
💚 Holly is the smart, powerful female protagonist we all need in a domestic thriller. She is the perfect antidote to those of her fictional peers whose actions have confounded me on my literary journey. The heroines whose sole barrier to a happy resolution is often far from insurmountable.
Big thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture Audio for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.
