index-2Delia Ephron’s latest novel explores the secrets lurking within the marriages of two couples vacationing together in Italy. Points of view alternate between all four characters: Lizzie and Michael, a journalist married to a writer, and Finn and Taylor, a restaurant owner & a close friend of Lizzie’s, who is married to a Maine tourism consultant, also the mother of their daughter, Snow. A very shy child, Snow keeps mostly to herself, but becomes enamored of Michael, who can be quite the charmer. Infidelity plays a major role in the novel, and a very strange twist at the end leaves the reader questioning who “dunnit”. This definitely falls in the category of psychological thrillers.
