Monday's Lie - Jamie Mason
Dee Aldrich rebelled against her off-center upbringing when she married
the most conventional man she could imagine: Patrick, her college
sweetheart. But now, years later, her marriage is falling apart and
she’s starting to believe that her husband has his eye on a new life...a
life without her, one way or another.
Haunted by memories of
her late mother Annette, a former covert operations asset, Dee reaches
back into her childhood to resurrect her mother’s lessons and the “spy
games” they played together, in which Dee learned memory tricks and,
most importantly, how and when to lie. But just as she begins
determining the course of the future, she makes a discovery that will
change her life: her mother left her a lot of money and her own husband
seems to know more about it than Dee does. Now, before it’s too late,
she must investigate her suspicions and untangle conspiracy from
coincidence, using her mother’s advice to steer her through the blind
spots. The trick, in the end, will be in deciding if a “normal life” is
really what she wants at all.

MY THOUGHTS: I really liked this book. The writer takes you a little outside the conventional boundaries of a psychological thriller. The characters are vivid and mysterious. It's like Dee is having a conversation with her mother, who passed away 3 years go. But Dee is remembering her upbringing and this helps her out when she needs it. Really good book.
This book is for my Read the Days of the Week Reading Challenge.
