    .Trust no oneEveryone is telling lies.There is an accident or perhaps a crimeWhat s the right choice to make ,What s the new right choice to make.Who is protecting who Chew on this Could it be that everything I ve done the hard work and the love, the steps forward, the backlash, all the bitter ends and bright ideas has been wasted This book was crazy enjoyable One of my favorite excerpts almost a monologue which I d love to share but sorry cannot do is so powerful sooo truthful I paused..read it again read it to my husband thinking about the brilliant background insight but I forgot about this awesome awareness moment..in relation to the overall storyI thought I knew a small part of the ending early onbut doubted myself on and off One thing is for certain I had no idea how the ending even with my gut red flag moment , would be packaged Great balls of fire fun Thank you for the great pleasure enjoymentNetgalley, Gallery Books, and Caroline Louise Walter

    Man of the Year by Caroline Louise Walker is a 2019 Gallery Books publication A twisty examination of the long lasting repercussions of infidelity By all accounts, Dr Robert Hart is a confident and productive member of society He has just received a prestigious award, has a successful career, friends, a big house, a boat, and his beautiful wife, Elizabeth.But every family has its hidden instabilities For Robert and Elizabeth, it is the stigma of building a marriage upon a foundation of infidelity They were both married to other people when their relationship began, but after divorcing their respective spouses, they married Now, after a decade, their marriage appears to be a stable one However, Robert s son from his first marriage, Jonah, was the collateral damage in Robert s decision to leave his family for Elizabeth For years, Jonah has been resentful and aimless, and naturally feels uncomfortable around his stepmother But things are finally looking up Jonah is staying with Robert and Elizabeth for the summer and he has even brought a friend along with him Nick s parents are both dead, and with no other big plans on the horizon, he readily accepts Elizabeth s invitation to stay for the entire summer with Jonah However, Robert is not so keen on that idea He s jealous of Nick, believing he has designs on his wife Not only that, Elizabeth seems to bask in the glow of his attentions And why not After all, she did cheat on her first husband with Robert, didn t she Robert s paranoia, once it has taken root, knows no bounds, as he plots to nudge Nick out his home under the pretext of saving his family Oh, what a tangled web we weave What a twisted little story this is Infidelity and the mistrust all that implies is at the heart of this story Robert s actions are based on deeply buried suspicions about Elizabeth, his guilty conscience about his son s struggles, and his supreme arrogance and insecurities Once the lies and machinations begin, there is a tragic snowball effect, raising the stakes even higher, as Robert could lose everything, including his career I thought this story was clever, although most readers will figure out a few of the twists in advance That s not really an issue for me in this case, as the dark humor in the story was rich and quite delicious This book is packed with morally bankrupt characters, some hoping to cash in on an unexpected opportunity, while others are laying well concealed traps The fun is in trying to decipher which one is worse than the other and watching it all play out in the most bizarre way imaginable How will you judge these characters Will you believe the worst about them or give them the benefit of the doubt, or condemn them all This is a dark character driven mystery, and even a little addicting A good book to pack with you for a day at the beach 4 stars

    This is one of those books that are nearly impossible to review because nothing I say will do it justice so I will begin withTHIS BOOK IS SIMPLY MAGNIFICENT.The crux of this story is Caroline Louise Walker s writing Period This is among the best prose from a debut author that I have seen in some time Walker has woven an intricate plot featuring a complex and utterly engrossing protagonist, Dr Robert Hart.Robert suspects his wife is cheating and he sets on a paranoid course of self destruction The lengths he goes to in order to satisfy his own suspicions while desperately trying to hold together his house of cards family is disquieting at best The beautiful things that grow from decay can make it awfully hard to leave the garden This is a subtle story, told almost entirely in the mind of Robert Walker has written this character with such acuity I felt like I was on the inside of him looking out No longer a spectator, I found myself seeing life through Robert s eyes This isn t a thriller so much as it is a study of character s So, if the stereotypical twister is what you re anticipating then I suspect that you, like myself, will be bowled over by the ability of masterful storytelling combined with an insidious plot to keep you on the edge of your seat, mouth agape I m not giving anything away when I say that the ending is irony personified and it is sublime Fantastic debut Count me in for everything to come from this author.I received an ARC from Gallery Books in exchange for an honest review.

    Dr Robert Bobby Hart, Man of the Year recipient, the envy of all in his community He s married to his 2nd wife, Elizabeth, whose beauty knows no bounds Of course, it should be known that their relationship began while both were married to other people Infidelity, being the most hurtful of all betrayals, but yet they ve managed to make their relationship work over the last ten years Bobby s 20 year old son, Jonah, has decided to spend his summer with them for the very first time which is a sign that old resentments may be mending Jonah s friend Nick has also come along and is invited to spend the summer in their guest house Beware the Man of the Year You may praise him, resent him, even want to be him but beneath the elegant trappings that define him, danger looms What happens when Man of the Year suspects that his faithful wife and his sons young, handsome, and virile friend appear to be having an affair The nerve My God The recklessness My power simmers and shines, daring me to fight for this precious life I ve built For Christ s sake, Bobby, take a stand When a relationship begins on infidelity I suppose it would be hard to overlook flirtatious smiles and coy glances especially when they aren t aimed at you but at someone much youthful Bobby let s his blood boil and his imagination run away with him and what a hoot it is to witness I probably should have hated this guy but I didn t and I have no idea what that says about me With so many lies being spun who is telling the truth You ll have to read it to find out Walkers writing is on point and I am stunned that this is her first novel She s made a fan of me 4 stars Thank you to NetGalley and Gallery Books for providing me with a digital ARC in exchange for my honest review

    3.5 Dr Robert Hart has it all A successful career and a new, young beautiful wife When his son Jonah comes home he s accompanied by his strikingly good looking friend Nick Does the good doctor have any reason for concern Nonsense, his wife wouldn t actually cheat on himwould she I loved being a fly on the wall witnessing the unraveling of the Man of The Year Caroline Louise Walker writes a crafty thriller filled with delusion, paranoia and lies None of the characters are very likablesome downright despicable But for this book it worked perfectly This is a good solid read, though somewhat predictable but still sure to entertain you.A buddy read with Susanne Thank you to Jessica Roth at Gallery Books via NetGalley and Caroline Louise Walker for an ARC to read and review.

    3.5 Stars rounded down Paranoia Oh What it does to a Man What happens when you start suspecting your spouse of cheating Do you confront them immediately or do you start trying to gather evidence without saying a word What happens if the person you suspect them of cheating with, is younger, attractive and extremely virile What measures would you go to Turns out some people are the jealous type Just ask Dr Robert Bobby Hart After just having received the Man of the Year award by the citizens of Sag Harbor, you think he d be on top of the world He has a thriving medical practice, a gorgeous wife and is the envy of many Then his son Jonah and Jonah s best friend, Nick come for the summer Suspicions arise once Bobby notices how much his wife Elizabeth and Nick have in common Sitting by and doing nothing isn t exactly an option once Bobby s blood starts boiling Man of the Year is a character study of one man s downward spiral detailing exactly how paranoia can destroy a person Bobby sure is a hoot and a half Despicable, yes, and yet, you can t tear your eyes away I m pretty sure ok, I am sure that not everyone acts the way he does when they have the same suspicions That being said, this sure makes for one heck of an entertaining read Man of the Year is a slow burn You feel Bobby s angst and the sickness that dwells within him once jealousy takes hold This is a character study, not a true suspense novel and the thrill is in Caroline Louise Walker s writing This was another buddy read with Kaceey Thank you to Jessica Roth at Gallery Books, NetGalley and Caroline Louise Walker for an arc of this novel in exchange for an honest review.Published on Goodreads and NetGalley on 4.24.19.Will be published on on 6.11.19.

  8. Theresa Alan Theresa Alan says:

    This was a tough one for me because I had a really hard time getting through the first half since I hated the primary narrator Robert so much So I read the reviews on Goodreads, which were pretty glowing, and thus I persevered I liked the second half of this novel much than the first half, in part because different narrators shared their accounts of events Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to review this book, which RELEASES JUNE 11, 2019 For reviews, please visit


  9. Carol (Bookaria) Carol (Bookaria) says:

    Dark, compelling, engrossing I started reading this book and was absolutely captivated by the characters.It opens up with a celebration, an event honoring Robert Hart, M.D for his contributions to the community he lives in, he has been named MAN OF THE YEAR His son Jonah and the son s best friend Nick are spending the summer with Dr Hart and his wife, but soon Dr Hart starts feeling uncomfortable by the looks twenty years old Nick is exchanging with his beautiful wife.The story is narrated by different characters and this is the strength of the novel, the characters well drawn voices What happens as the story progresses is enthralling, at some point it was like watching a train wreck collide with another train wreck and you just can t stop watching it, or reading, in my case Chilling endingOverall, I enjoyed it, it was dark, entertaining, and engaging Highly recommend it to readers of thrillers and contemporary fiction Received ARC from the publisher via Netgalley


  10. Carrie Carrie says:

    Man of the Year by Caroline Louise Walker is one of those books that has a completely unlikable unreliable narrator in Dr Robert Hart who has just become Sag Harbor s Man of the Year as we join his story Now as unlikable as Bobby is he may just run a few readers off before the story actually picks up on uncovering the secrets and lies.On the outside looking in our Man of the Year has one of those wonderful, much envied lives with a beautiful new young wife, a son from a previous marriage and a thriving business However, of course we find all is not perfect behind closed doors as Bobby seems to think something may be going on between his wife and his college aged son s friend that she invited to stay despite his protests.Some may call this a thriller but it s along the lines of suspense or domestic drama that dives into the lives of these characters The second half picks up the pace a bit than the first and while some some things seemed a bit predictable other twists were surprising so if one can overlook the pompous narrator this one turned into a solid read I d rate at 3 1 2 stars.I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.For reviews please visit
