Girl on a Train by AJ Waines

Girl on a Train - Author's Republic, A.J. Waines, Melissa Chambers

A glimpse at the reviews for this book tells me that many people are 'tricked' into reading it due to it's similarity to The Girl on the Train. I realized my mistake about a quarter of the way through listening to this audiobook and decided that I liked it enough to continue.

The most clever thing about this book might be the decision to name it almost the same thing as a famous bestseller, but the plot is also quite intricate - to the point where it becomes implausible. I enjoyed the character development and style of writing that made this book play like a movie in my head. If I found the final reveal a bit much, it did take me by surprise. If you happen to accidentally pick it up, I recommend sticking with it. ;-)
