The last person Alice Shipley expected to see since arriving in Tangier with her new husband was Lucy Mason. After the accident at Bennington, the two friends—once inseparable roommates—haven’t spoken in over a year. But there Lucy was, trying to make things right and return to their old rhythms. Perhaps Alice should be happy. She has not adjusted to life in Morocco, too afraid to venture out into the bustling medinas and oppressive heat. Lucy—always fearless and independent—helps Alice emerge from her flat and explore the country. But soon a familiar feeling starts to overtake Alice—she feels controlled and stifled by Lucy at every turn. Then Alice’s husband, John, goes missing, and Alice starts to question everything around her: her relationship with her enigmatic friend, her decision to ever come to Tangier, and her very own state of mind. Tangerine is a sharp dagger of a book—a debut so tightly wound, so replete with exotic imagery and charm, so full of precise details and extraordinary craftsmanship, it will leave you absolutely breathless.-- Adapted from dust jacket.

When Alice last saw Lucy, her college roommate, she told her that she never wanted to see her again, and yet here she is on her doorstep in Tangier acting like that never happened. And how did she even find her?

This is a case where my expectations were not very high, so I was pleasantly surprised by how delightfully atmospheric this was and it had a nice edge of uncertainty to it always, even when it's unpredictability was predictable.

This book was awful. I could not get into it so I started skipping after the first 75-80 pages. It did not get better. The circumstances were not at all believable and I could not relate to the characters. This book is supposed to be a thriller but it is not, in my opinion. It feels like some aspects are a ripoff of The Talented Mr. Ripley but with more vapid characters. I wish I could reclaim the time I wasted on this over-hyped book of boredom. You've been warned.
