Short story review: Slow Burner by Laura Lippman (Hush Collection)


Liz and Phil have a typical marriage watching Netflix at night and doing the regular and boring marriage routine.

Phil has a past of talking to other women before though and when Liz catches this happening again, she is not too happy.

The secret burner phone becomes an addiction for both Liz checking on Phil, and Phil texting the other woman.

My Thoughts:

I loved this one! Revenge stories are always so great to read. The twist to the ending was so well done too!

This was organized so well by relaying the text messages to the reader to interpret.

This was a satisfying read!
