BOOK REVIEW: IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN WHAT HE SAID:
It seems like the perfect marriage. Something went terribly wrong. What could have caused Isabel to try and kill her husband? What would make someone go over the edge?
Isabel, age 28, had everything going for her. At this young age, she was the head of her own publishing company. James, on the other hand, only cared about his indulgences. He liked to drink and went from one woman to another. Isabel recognized, however, that James did have a very fine talent for writing.
Isabel insisted on meeting James. Her friends warned her about James and his vices. She did not listen to them.
The two were very attracted to each other. James did truly fall in love with Isabel. They married and had a son.
Their friends were surprised. They did not think this marriage would work.
So the question remains. What drove Isabel to the act of trying to kill her husband when everything was going so perfect?
This novel begins with what one would think would be the ending. Isabel confesses to her psychiatrist that she tried to kill her husband but could not recall why. This is Eden Collinsworth's debut novel. That's almost hard to believe. Readers are in for a treat with this book. Collinsworth writes like a master who has been writing novels like this for a long time. This is a compelling novel and the author shows the reader that no matter what people say, you cannot change a person's mind when love plays an important part in the choices involved. Be sure to add this one to your reading list. It is highly recommended.
