Thank you to Hachette for sending me a copy of Save Me by Kristyn Kusek Lewis in exchange for an honest review. I have really wanted to read one of this author’s r novels. A great beach read for sure!
Daphne and Evan have the perfect marriage. They have known each other since they were kids. So when they run into each other during their residences in Durham what could be better? Is it really loved at first sight? Daphne thinks so until she receives a startling announcement from her husband that he has had an affair, in the present. Daphne decides to take a road trip home only to find out that his mistress has been in an accident and she is being called upon to save her. Will she be able to save her or does she want to? Will her marriage be worth saving in the end?
I did enjoy the story. I found it to be thought provoking. What choice would Daphne make and why. The author did a great job of leading the reader through this maze to get to the ending. My question became was it worth it in the end? There were many twists and turns in the story but sometimes made me feel flat and, not interested in moving forward towards the end of the story. I did love the complexity of the story where the author used symbolism to propel Daphne forward to make that next choice.
