For the rest, it boils down to the reader’s ability and/or willingness to ignore certain aspects of the story. Alix's life is nowhere near as shiny as it appears on the surface and Josie is just a fascinating character. The narrative unfolds as two distinct women, brought together by a chance encounter at a pub, discover they share the same birthday.

Overall, it’s one of the stories that stay with you for years, still giving you goosebumps at each time you remember the characters and main events. Why do you think Josie imbues this relatively ordinary coincidence with so much importance and meaning? Walter is retired now, his hair has gone and so has a lot of his hearing and his eyesight, and his midlife peak is somewhere so far back in time and so mired in the white-hot intensity of rearing small children that it’s almost impossible to remember what he was like at her age. I finally got my turn last weekend and got through most of it over two days while I worked on the painting I’m doing for my brother’s Christmas gift (he requested “ugly art”). Walker, meanwhile, captures Alix’s building disquiet at Josie’s manner and the inconsistencies in her story.

So the impetus for using birthday twins as an opening into the novel definitely did not spring from my own experience.

Alix comes into her life at just the right time--a podcast host, she is the perfect woman to help Josie share her intriguing story. This quest leads her to Alix Summer, a renowned podcaster, where she sees an opportunity to share her intriguing life story and embark on a journey of reinvention. She has to go back to her husband and her flatbread and let Alix go back to her friends and her party. As the story unfolds, the layers of Josie's character are peeled back, exposing the intricacies of "her very intriguing life story. This involvement escalates to stalking, stealing items from Alix's house, lurking around, critiquing her marriage, and manipulating her by portraying Alix's husband as worse than her own.

BUT after a very strong start, and me loving the short chapters the ending was kind of ambiguous and left me wanting more. By the time Alix feels unease, Josie has wormed her way into Alix’s life and home, with repercussions that are unforeseeable and devastating. In the end though, I still wanted a little bit more after all the highs and lows, something was missing for me.
