Synopsis: Louise – Since her husband walked out, Louise has made her son her world, supporting them both with her part-time job. But all that changes when she meets…

David – Young, successful and charming – Louise cannot believe a man like him would look at her twice let alone be attracted to her. But that all comes to a grinding halt when she meets his wife…

Adele – Beautiful, elegant and sweet – Louise’s new friend seems perfect in every way. As she becomes obsessed by this flawless couple, entangled in the intricate web of their marriage, they each, in turn, reach out to her.

But only when she gets to know them both does she begin to see the cracks… Is David really is the man she thought she knew and is Adele as vulnerable as she appears?
Just what terrible secrets are they both hiding and how far will they go to keep them?



A thriller that will leave you in shock, and will leave you reeling for weeks on end after you finish the final page.

This book is without a doubt one of the best books I have ever read. It literally blew me away not only with how brilliantly it was written, but with just how genius it is.

The split POV was so clever as it really allowed you to get into the mindset of each character, and gave you the full story rather than just the story from one POV. It was such an important addition to the book, and was done brilliantly.

Each character worked so well together, they all created such a brilliant story and were so well developed.

I thought I knew what was going on, but then at every point I was completely blown away with a new twist. It kept me on my toes the entire time, and I couldn’t read it quick enough. I ended up reading it in one day, because I just couldn’t bring myself to put it down.

The book was publicised with the premise of having an unbelievable ending, and let me tell you it lived up to that perfectly. I was in utter shock after finishing it, and it took me a couple of days to get over how good it was.

This book is the perfect thriller and suspense package all rolled into one. I am still in awe of how clever this book was. It was definitely one of the best books I’ve read this year, and Sarah has definitely earned the title of one of my favourite authors.
