You trusted her. You shouldn’t have. 

Alicia’s been telling lies. And now they’ve come back to haunt her. 

When an old colleague turns up at a party, Alicia comes face to face with the man who has the potential to ruin her perfect family life. He wouldn’t, would he? 

In order to keep her secrets, Alicia has to tell yet more lies and when a devastating car accident makes the situation even more dangerous, it’s only a matter of time before everything falls apart. Can secrets really stay hidden forever?

51f49TTweALSheryl Browne is becoming one of my favourite authors. After reading her last thriller The Babysitter, I was so excited to see that new one is coming out soon.

First of all, eye catching covers are what definitely worked for me. I’m not proud of it but I do judge the book by it’s cover a lot and this one was an instant winner.

Thrillers being my favourite genre to read, I have read a lot of them and they tend to get a bit repetitive. I’m so pleased that Sheryl found a way how to still keep me on my toes and make me turn page by page with a thrill and excitement.

Lies are always a good base for the story, but when you try to fix the lie with yet some more lies, it can’t end well. I loved this story, although we knew from the beginning that the affair will be the main part of the story, this book had so much more going on. Touched some very sensitive subjects and got me very emotionally involved in the story. I basically had to read it until the end, no matter what plans I’ve had.

I really hope Sheryl Brown has more of these stories up her sleeve, because her writing style and sense for suspense are quite addictive. I can recommend this book and this author to anyone who hasn’t had a chance yet to experience her writing.
