Never Have I Ever: A Novel
It starts out seemingly harmless enough; a variation of a childhood party game where participants share secret shames. It quickly turns, opening wounds and crimes from past and present.
In this new mystery, Never Have I Eve by Joshilyn Jackson, we meet Amy Whey, a suburbanite surrounded by her creature comforts.
Gathered for the routine neighborhood book club meeting, the ladies are settling into the evening until Roux, a striking beauty and crowd dominator, arrives and takes over. Most think they are having fun, but Roux didn’t come for fun, she came for something sinister. Temporarily residing in the neighborhood, she leaks her way into the lives of several women, but her sights are set on Amy and unboxing the secret she has carefully contained for so long.
Where did Roux come from and how is she entwined in this secret? This is where the rollercoaster gains momentum, and we are here and strapped in for the twists and turns.
It is a fast-paced thriller/mystery, a detour from Ms. Jackson’s work and a thrilling addition. This will be a perfect read to stash in your beach bag, preferably reading late into the night by flashlight.
