There are two sides to every story: yours and mine, ours and theirs, His & Hers. Which means someone is always lying.

Anna Andrews finally has what she wants. Almost. She’s worked hard to become the main TV presenter of the BBC’s lunchtime news, putting work before friends, family, and her now ex-husband. So, when someone threatens to take her dream job away, she’ll do almost anything to keep it.

When asked to cover a murder in Blackdown―the sleepy countryside village where she grew up―Anna is reluctant to go. But when the victim turns out to be one of her childhood friends, she can’t leave. It soon becomes clear that Anna isn’t just covering the story, she’s at the heart of it.

DCI Jack Harper left London for a reason, but never thought he’d end up working in a place like Blackdown. When the body of a young woman is discovered, Jack decides not to tell anyone that he knew the victim, until he begins to realise he is a suspect in his own murder investigation.

One of them knows more than they are letting on. Someone isn’t telling the truth. Alternating between Anna's and Jack's points of view, His & Hers is a fast-paced, complex, and dark puzzle that will keep readers guessing until the very end.


My thoughts about His & Hers ~~ 

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"It wasn't love at first sight. I can admit that now."

This book blew my mind. The clues in the writing were so cryptic that just when I starting thinking I knew who was behind the evil, something would make me swerve in a whole different direction in my thinking.

Seriously, I got to the point where I thought for sure everyone had to be guilty of all these horrible murders. It just didn't make sense—they all had incentive, motive, and guilt. I really want to go back and re-read this book. Knowing now 'whodunit', I know I would interpret the clues differently. It would be interesting to experience it again in a whole new light.

His & Hers is a definite page-turner as you will race to the end as you try to figure out it for yourself. I highly recommend it but make sure that you have plenty of time to read it because you are not going to be able to stop once you start.

I received a copy of His & Hers from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.
