The Expats by Chris Pavone

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review

The Expats by Chris Pavone
ISBN: 9780770435721
Trade Paperback

Synopsis: Can we ever escape our secrets?
In the cobblestoned streets of Luxembourg, Kate Moore's days are filled with playdates and coffee mornings, her weekends spent in Paris and skiing in the Alps. But Kate is also guarding a tremendous, life-defining secret—one that's become so unbearable that it begins to unravel her newly established expat life. She suspects that another American couple are not who they claim to be; her husband is acting suspiciously; and as she travels around Europe, she finds herself looking over her shoulder, increasingly terrified that her own past is catching up with her. As Kate begins to dig, to uncover the secrets of the people around her, she finds herself buried in layers of deceit so thick they threaten her family, her marriage, and her life.   

Stylish and sophisticated, fiercely intelligent, and expertly crafted, The Expats proves Chris Pavone to be a writer of tremendous talent.

My review: This is the first book I have read by this author. I chose to read this book because it sounded like it was full of suspense and action. After reading the book I have to say that yes it was full of suspense. In my opinion the author did a good job on the character development - he created some very strong characters to carry this story. Another thing that made this a good book for me was that it kept me guessing right up until the end. It is one that is hard to put down. I will be looking into getting The Accident which is the next book by this author.
