Book Review: Two Nights in Lisbon by Chris Pavone

book review two nights in lisbon chris pavone

Two Nights in Lisbon by Chris Pavone is about a woman named Ariel Pryce waking up alone in her Lisbon hotel room, and her husband is no where to be found in the hotel.  Panicking, Ariel reaches out to the local police and the American Embassy, but they aren't of much help.  Who would want to harm her husband?

First and foremost, I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Two Nights in Lisbon by Chris Pavone in exchange for my honest review.  I was excited to receive this book, especially since I'm a fan of the author's writing.

Chris Pavone weaved an intriguing story in Two Nights in Lisbon that had twists and turns galore that left me guessing until the very end.  I found myself rooting for the main character and loved the fact that all the loose ends were wrapped up so there were no cliffhangers.  I enjoyed the fact that the storyline switched back and forth between the present and past . . . making this novel a bit of a slow burn.  

There was really only one big complaint that I have about this novel.  I don't like it when the author has an unreliable narrator because it makes it difficult to guess what will happen.  Four out of five stars is what I gave Two Nights in Lisbon by Chris Pavone, and I can't wait to see what he writes next.
