I always like to read a few reviews of a book before I post my review (but never before I read it) to see what other people thought of it. I’m surprised at how many people disliked the level of crazy going on in this book, I mean, everyone had a secret, or they were plotting and conniving, and it was wonderful!!
Aldrich University has been hacked and the emails everyone thought were private, are out there for anyone to read. Secrets they thought were buried are coming to the surface and the entire school is on edge. Reputation is told in multiple points of view though I tended to lean towards Kit as our main character, and then everyone else’s story sort of revolved around her.
I don’t want to tell you about each of these women’s quirks because I feel it will spoil the multitude of twists that are in Reputation. But I can tell you what I thought of Kit’s husband, Greg, and he was a slimy, cheating bastard who was involved with so many people because of his position at the hospital it’s no wonder that the storyline revolves around him and Kit.
Because this was an advanced copy from Dutton, I know there are going to be spelling mistakes and whatnot, (and there were) but Shepard wrote the word Patrick 13 times in a matter of a few paragraphs, and I think she could pull out half of those and write the word he, it was a bit overkill. (I probably wouldn’t have counted but it was distracting).
I think outside of that easily fixable gripe, this was such a fun read. I found myself wonderfully hating the levels these women went, to get what they want, to arrange an outcome or a situation in favor for themselves, and I think Shepard wrote them so well. The storyline is super fun, it’s well written and twisty and you’re not entirely sure what’s going to happen.
