“I glance at my wife as she climbs into the passenger seat, and I am bursting with confidence. Today will be everything I’ve promised her…and more…”
Paul Strom is a winner. He has a picture perfect life that is the envy of most, with a successful career, a beautiful wife, two little boys that are the image of him, not to mention the large home in a wealthy neighbourhood. Yes, Paul is a winner, and a perfect husband. So today he has planned a perfect getaway for his lovely young wife to their lakeside cottage, and everything is in place to make the day the best day ever. But as the trip unfolds, tension and unease creep in, raising the question of how much they truly know and trust one another.
“The perfect couple is the perfect illusion.”
Told from the perspective of the man himself, Paul Strom, BEST DAY EVER is a page-turning dive into the mind of a narcissistic and arrogant psychopath. Does that grab your attention? It sure grabbed mine! This is not a typical thriller, and if you prefer a high-paced, action packed, rollercoaster with plenty of twists and turns, this might not be for you. However, if you enjoy a steady, gently-paced read and exploring the mind and thought-process of a twisted personality, then this novel is a great option. I was completely taken in by Paul’s voice from the very beginning right to the end, and truly fascinated by his character. BEST DAY EVER is dark, creepy, disturbing, and as Paul would say, a winner.
“Life: it’s transitory. And in life, there are always winners and losers. It’s nice to be a winner.”
