What a suspenseful book! Just like the first book that Sandie Jones wrote "The Other Woman", this book will keep you on the edge of your seat, never seeing the twists and turns coming your way. It left me questioning "who can you really trust?". There are three main characters focused on in this story, a wife/business owner, Alice, her second husband /business partner, Nathan, and her best friend, Beth.
Alice and her first husband, Tom, started a design company together. Tom passed away while on a ski trip leaving Alice to raise their daughter and manage the business alone. Alice met Nathan and he seemed to be an answer to her prayers. Nathan and Alice had a daughter together and he helped with the management and marketing side of Alice's business. The company was successful and it provided a lavish lifestyle for the family. Beth was a single mother of a daughter and sometimes it was a struggle to maintain their lifestyle. Alice and Beth were best friends and Alice totally trusted Beth. When Alice had some doubts about Nathan, she confided in Beth. When Beth confided in Alice about her daughter's father and her life prior to meeting Alice, there's questions that arise in Alice's mind. When Nathan proposes that he and Alice's company take a giant leap to promote the business internationally, Alice hesitantly agrees. As Alice observes some questionable behaviors of Nathan, she confidently makes decisions that will be life changing for everyone involved. This was a fairly quick read, because once I picked it up and started reading, I didn't want to put it down. There's a bit of mystery, deceitfulness, evilness portrayed and at the same time you see a woman who regains her self-confidence, develops her strength and forgives part of the past. I enjoyed reading this, definitely should be on everyone's summer read list. Thank-you to Netgalley, Minotaur Books and Sandie Jones for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for a honest review. Review posted to Goodreads, Amazon and Kobo
