Apple Books:




I finally have everything I ever wanted. A home with floor-to-ceiling windows, a devoted husband who dazzles everyone he meets, and two angelic children I adore. But as I watch my husband chatting with the girl next door, I wonder if anyone can see the sadness in my pretty pink smile, or hear the scream behind my straight white teeth?

I know I’m crazy to think there’s a hint of desire in his eyes.

I know it’s madness to see a flicker of fear in hers.

I know all this, because I’ve been wrong before.

And if I’m wrong again, he’ll try to take my children away.

The party is my last chance to prove to my husband that I’m on the mend, that I can handle something as simple as a drinks reception without snapping under the pressure. It’s all going perfectly, until I see something in the swimming pool that changes everything. But if I can’t trust myself to believe it’s real, who will?

A totally unputdownable page-turner about the darker side of love and what really goes on under the surface of perfect-looking lives. Clever and unexpected, this book will have you gripped from the very first page until the dramatic final twist. Fans of The Wife Between Us and The Mother-in-Law will be hooked.

My Review:

I love this author and was super excited about this book. It certainly didn’t disappoint!

It’s a really complex psychological thriller. I had no idea who could be trusted and whether Elizabeth was all that she seemed.

All of the characters had aspects that made them appear genuine and trustworthy, but then it all twists, and you’re not sure if they are in fact, someone completely different.

The pace is perfect, with suspense building all the time, then picking up in urgency towards the end.

The setting is one of wealth and beauty, but there’s a sense of it all being, as Lucas says in the novel, smoke and mirrors. Even the sultry weather contributes to the atmosphere.

This is such a page-turner, I couldn’t put it down. It totally draws you in right from the start and will leave you stunned. Excellent.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
