Best Day Ever Bets On...

Best Day Ever

September 2017

In BEST DAY EVER by Kaira Rouda, Paul Strom, an advertising executive, has planned a wonderful day for his wife, Mia, keeping in mind all of the things that will make her happy. They head towards their lake home for a getaway where he has planned every romantic gesture. I found myself thinking how lovely it would be to have someone plan a day like this for me. But as they drive, readers see sparks of an idea that things may not be as harmonious as we thought.

I do not want to give away much here as part of the reason the book works is in the reveal, but let’s just say that Paul is not the loving husband he wants us to think he is. It’s an addictive read that’s completely compulsive. Friends who I gave advance copies to all loved it; I love calls when people say “That was great” and want to talk about it.

Those who loved THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR (another Bets On title) will want to take note of BEST DAY EVER. For book groups who enjoy thrillers, this is a good one to think about for a discussion, including the construction of the book, which makes it work. I cannot wait to see what Kaira writes next!
