About The X

Clarissa Hadonfield had it all. She lived in a lovely home surrounded by affluent intellectuals, had a successful husband, and two phenomenal teenage boys. With the ring of a doorbell she finds her life substituted by one where she has to fight for her children against an evil she never knew existed and had been sleeping next to for the last twenty years. When Clarissa's X shows his true colors, she finds she must become a strong woman who cannot only grow prize-winning flowers but can place a devastating roundhouse kick. Teaming up with Bryce Brightman, an ex-FBI agent, she uncovers a woman whose only goal is to save her children. This story is about what a woman can do when she put her brains, her brawn, and her boots into changing the course of her life and protecting the ones she loves.

My thoughts about The X

Although I love to read, as a busy mother of 5, I sometimes only get 1 or 2 nights a week when I can sit down and really get into a book.  Those are the nights that I really appreciate a fast, easy read and The X did not disappoint.  Although my marriage survived, and what we went through was no where near as bad as what Clarissa experienced, I know all too well that feeling when you entire world comes crashing down unexpectedly.  I loved the strength that Clarissa finds, both physically and emotionally, to save her children.  I found it easy to identify with her and to like her.

I recommend The X to anyone who enjoys mystery and action books.  If you are one who can only read a few pages at a time (that is me most days) I recommend saving this one until you have a longer period of time to sit and read.  It is so hard to put down, that I can not be held responsible if you forget to make dinner, go to work, pick up the kids, do the housework, or whatever other things you may need to be doing.

  1. Thank you, Danielle for the great review. I'm glad you found yourself relating to Clarissa. This idea started germinating during my divorce, although my ex is not this one.
