About this deal

The book is well-written and well-plotted, I just thought the main twist was really obvious and very similar to other books I’ve read recently. Wouldn’t rave about it like others have but I’m guessing that they must be die hard Susan Lewis Fans. No One Saw it Coming is a good, solid read, although I’m afraid to say I did see it coming right from the very beginning.

The big twist, the big reveal I felt was obvious from very early in the story, partly cuz I've read that plot twist in several other books and partly cuz the "clues" were very obvious from the get-to. The pacing is steady and everything builds to an exciting conclusion in this tale of family relationships. It takes a big turn in the 2nd half of the book, but turns out that some people DID see it coming because I figured out the twist early :) I liked the twist and the 2nd half of the book better than the first half, but I just wasn’t that surprised by anything that happened and some of it seemed pretty unrealistic. Following periods of living in Los Angeles and the South of France, she currently lives in Gloucestershire with her husband, James, and her dog, Mimi. I do like when unsuspecting secrets are revealed after someones death, can't say I liked what it was in this particular circumstance though.This story was very interesting, especially because the husband of one of my colleagues actually was “Riona”-like.

I felt like I was watching the weekly episodes of a 70s soap opera, and I pictured them hitting their marks and swanning off to the next scene.I don't mean that in a negative way :)) I thought it wrapped up to a satisfying conclusion and would definitely read more by this talented storyteller. It kept me very entertained and I whizzed through it so it gets a good rating, but would I recommend it? Jack I liked from the start - with reservations - and I never had any doubts about Seb, Andee or Graeme.

There is a good representation and discussion surrounding a mental health diagnosis within this book which I found to be written about in a very informative way. No one saw it coming illustrates so well that their are secrets in every family but some have a far greater magnitude than others with far reaching consequences. She has such a beautiful, infectious smile; her eyes shine with humour and kindness; her skin is lightly freckled and smooth. One of the disclosures didn’t endear me to 2 of the characters, and didn’t seem to fit the rest of the their character traits, although with wealth it seems extreme behaviours are more commonplace.The one thing I would say about this is I found it very predictable and it wasn’t that different to other thrillers I’ve read in the past. The characters are well written and the interplay feels genuine on the whole (wasn't sure about the Hugo subplot as he was so vile! Susan Lewis is the bestselling author of over forty books across the genres of family drama, thriller, suspense and crime. The majority of the story revolves around Hanna, with occasional interspersions from an unknown character who seems to know an awful lot about Hanna and her family.
