Book Review: The Expats by Chris Pavone

Book Review: The Expats by Chris Pavone

Sometimes, I need a book like this; one that doesn’t elicit strong emotions, does not tug at any strings or makes you say “AWWW” over and over again. We all need a passive read once in a while, don’t we? God knows I did after 4 books of Ice and Fire and a couple of John Greens!

This is supposed to be a suspense/thriller/mystery genre which is never my first choice anyway, but this book just misses being suspenspensful, thirlling or mysterious. It’s still a good story though.
