LOOK: Sweater Dress – Target
“If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?”
From the bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors (!!!), The Break Down is a novel about a young woman, Cass, who finds herself unexpectedly caught up in the murder of a young woman that has happened close to the home she shares with her husband Matthew. Cass feels somewhat responsible for this woman’s death, and she can’t shake the feeling that someone is watching her. She receives mysterious, threatening phone calls daily, and all of this is coupled with the fact that her memory is fading—she fears she may have early-onset Alzheimer’s. Cass is having trouble keeping herself together, but she wants desperately to find out (or remember) what happened that rainy night of the murder. Will she be able to figure out the truth before it’s too late?
I absolutely loved this book. I found myself actually really scared during some parts—I was in the story you guys. The ending/solution is one I totally did not see coming! I’m still talking about it with my friend Sarah at work, who introduced me to this gem. You’ll seriously want to go back and reread parts because the ending CHANGES. THE. GAME. With so many thrillers these days, you never know what you’re going to get, but trust me when I say that this one is the real deal. B.A. Paris is a master of her craft. The Break Down is the best thriller I have read in a long time. Get your hands on a copy ASAP. [[Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars]]
I paired this book with an olive-y green sweater dress because 1.) it’s cozy and when you read a thriller you’ve got to be cozy, and 2.) Cass’s house is tucked away in the woods and green is a woodsy color. #nailedit. You know when you run into Target for just one thing? That thing was not this dress…just sayin. Product placement got the best of me because this dress was just right in front of me on my way to grab some toothpaste (that’s all I needed) and I couldn’t pass it up. Poor consumerism aside, I really like the fit and the material—it’s not too thick and not too thin. It’s one of my favorite things to wear this fall! It comes in a few colors, so grab one that works for you and get cozy!
