Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Synopsis: From Sandie Jones, the author of the Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick and New York Times bestseller The Other Woman, comes an addictively readable new domestic suspense about a wife, her husband, and the woman who is supposedly her best friend.

THE WIFE: For Alice, life has never been better. With her second husband, she has a successful business, two children, and a beautiful house.

HER HUSBAND: Alice knows that life could have been different if her first husband had lived, but Nathan's arrival into her life gave her back the happiness she craved.

HER BEST FRIEND: Through the ups and downs of life, from celebratory nights out to comforting each other through loss, Alice knows that with her best friend Beth by her side, they can survive anything together. So when Nathan starts acting strangely, Alice turns to Beth for help. But soon, Alice begins to wonder whether her trust has been misplaced . . .

The first mistake could be her last.

My Review: What. A. Twisted. Read!!

First of all, I have to give props to the person who wrote this synopsis… What an amazing job at not giving anything away! Yet at the same time, making sure the reader stays engaged to find out how it all connects!

The novel engages you right away, it’s written in three parts, two parts past, one part present. 

We get to know three major characters:

Alice - a wife, mother, friend, a successful business owner who found comfort in her second husband Nathan, after losing her first husband in a tragic sudden death. 

Nathan - Alice’s husband, father, works alongside Alice helping her run her successful business. 

Beth - Alice’s best friend and confidant, has never met Nathan, always willing to make time for Alice when she needs her help.

Sometimes things are not as they seem.. one of these people is not who they claim to be.. and Alice must determine who she can trust..

It’s a fast paced read, I loved the writing, I loved the characters, and even though I thought I know what was going to happen.. I was completely wrong.

This book will knock you off your feet, again and again!
