Happy Friday all!
Does a book ever take you by surprise? This was definitely one of those for me, I was not anticipating this to be so darn good and twisty!
Secrets and lies. Lies and secrets. Ruth Heald has crafted an almost perfect thriller. Two unreliable narrators. Both appear to be strong savvy women on the outside. BUT they both have A lot to HIDE, not to mention they both might be a little bit Cray Cray. Beth is a marriage counselor with a young adorable son. Her own marriage is currently in trouble and her husband has just moved out of the family home. Danielle is a young wife who has just started seeing Beth for marriage counseling, even though her husband does not join her. Danielle wears her scars on her inside and her out. Both women are running from something in their past and somehow this ties together? But how? And who is duping who?
This book was perfectly paste. The story unfolded quietly and subtly. The story had such a creepy and tents edge to it. I had so many jaw-dropping WTAF moments while reading this. A well told thriller with some crazy twists.

About the Book
She thinks she knows me.
She believes my marriage is falling apart at the seams, that my husband can barely look me in the eyes. She thinks I’m desperate for a baby, that my longing for a family keeps me up at night. As much as I hate to admit it, all of this is true.
She thinks I listen to her advice, that I care about her opinion. That couldn’t be further from the truth.
Because she has no idea who I am. She has no clue that I know everything.
I know her secret. I know that she did the unforgivable. I know how many lives she ruined.
I know exactly what she did. And I’m here for her.
An utterly gripping, addictive and shocking read about the dark secrets we’re ashamed to admit, and the lengths people go to for revenge. Fans of K.L. Slater, My Lovely Wife and The Wife Between Us will be racing through the pages, gasping at the twists, and reeling from the explosive ending of this unmissable page-turner.
