I’m delighted to be part of the book tour today for this amazing book. Thanks to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.
“Thank you,” I say sweetly when she tells me I’m lucky to have such a beautiful family. But I want to tell her it’s not just luck. A family is like a fortress you have to defend all the time. You can’t relax because there’s always someone looking for a breach, always someone trying to get in. Someone just like her…
When I arrive unannounced at my husband’s studio in need of a shoulder to cry on after hearing that my best student, Alex, has died, I see a pair of wine glasses drying by the sink and my deepest fear is confirmed: my husband is having an affair.
Most women would fall to their knees in tears and throw him out of the house–but I just can’t bring myself to do it.
Instead, I go home and cook a healthy dinner for our children, walk the dog and unload the dishwasher without complaint. I will make him see that I’m still the woman he married; attractive, successful, the glue that holds our perfect family together. I need this marriage to work to protect a terrible secret of my own, something that would destroy everything I’ve already sacrificed so much for.
But when the police arrive at my door asking questions about Alex’s death that I can’t answer, and threatening text messages start appearing on my phone, I know that someone close has been watching me very carefully.
The truth is, there are three people in my marriage, but only one of them is deadly…
An absolutely gripping psychological thriller with a twist that will knock you sideways, perfect for anyone left hungry for more after The Girl on the Train, The Wife Between Us or The Other Wife.
Wow, this is an unbelievably gripping thriller of a book! Once you start reading this book, you will not be able to put it down.
There is a lot going on for Anna, right from the start in this book. The death of the student that she mentored, Alex, is shocking; and from then on, Anna appears to embark on a trail of destruction, as she ends up in one bad situation after another.
The blurb for this book does not even begin to do this very complex and twisty tale justice. Yes, there is Anna’s suspicion that her husband is having an affair, but that’s almost the tip of the iceberg in terms of all the shocking and dark events that are about to take place.
There are some books that you don’t just read, you experience, and this book is one of those. Prepare to be totally consumed by it, and feel that you are living the story. It’s real edge of your seat stuff, the suspense is almost unbearable at times, and the shocks are genuinely jaw-dropping.
I absolutely devoured this book, I just couldn’t wait to go back to it every time, to see what would happen next. I had no idea of who to trust, or what was going to happen, and the ending left me totally stunned.
Probably one of the best psychological thrillers that I’ve read this year. Do not miss this dark, suspenseful and heart-pounding book!
Natalie Barelli can usually be found reading a book, and that book will more likely than not be a psychological thriller. When not absorbed in the latest gripping page-turner, Natalie loves cooking, enjoys riding her Vespa around town and otherwise spends far too much time at the computer. She lives in Australia, with her family.
