Review| Rock Paper Scissors – Alice Feeney

The last few months I’ve slowly started reading and enjoying thrillers more. It’s a new to me genre still, so when I saw a book club on Bookstagram I had to join. This month’s book is Rock Paper Scissors and I decided to listen to the audiobook before my vacation started. Today I want to tell you about this book and what I thought!

The phenomenal new thriller from the international bestselling author of Sometimes I Lie.

Ten years of marriage.
Ten years of secrets.
An anniversary they’ll never forget.

Adam and Amelia are spending the weekend in the Scottish Highlands. The remote location is perfect for what they have planned.

But when their romantic trip takes a dark turn, they both start to wonder – can they trust the one they’re with?

Because every couple tells little white lies. Only for Adam and Amelia, the truth is far more dangerous.


Rock Paper Scissors is a thriller, so this will be a shorter review. Thrillers are books you need to read and discover yourself to really get the whole story. I did want to talk about it though, because it’s one I would recommend. If you enjoy audiobooks definitely give this one a try. It fits the book really well.

This book had me hooked from the beginning, because I felt like I was sucked into the story with Adam and Amelia (our two main characters). When I was listening to this book it was during my commute to work on a really rainy and cold day. That definitely made the experience more intense when hearing how cold it is where there weekend away is held. Adam has face blindness and that has to be so scary to have (then again if you don’t know anything else). That definitely added an extra element to this mysterious story!

“The scariest haunted houses are always the ones in which you are the ghost.”

Once our main characters get to the location of their weekend away nothing is as it seems and events keep making them wonder why they ever decided to come. The chapters from years before and from different POVs had me hooked and I needed to know how it ended. Rock Paper Scissors was one major ride and I have to say I was surprised about how it all wrapped up.

If you’re looking for a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat, has an interesting set, and cast of characters I suggest picking up Rock Paper Scissors.

Rock Paper Scissors is a wild ride and I’m glad I decided to listen to the audiobook. This was my first book by Alice Feeney, but I’ll definitely be looking into more by this author. Have you read this book? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!
