“Adele, we believe your husband is missing.” As everything around me starts to blur, I go over the words once more: “your husband is missing.” Four simple words with the power to shatter my whole world in an instant.
Working as a marriage counselor I’m used to the tragedies that come out of nowhere. People trust me to help them through life’s big moments. The things that leave you questioning everything you thought you knew about the person you love the most.
But I never thought trouble would land on my own doorstep.
As I start to piece together our last conversation desperate for any clues I can find, the cop standing in front of me reveals that my husband never told his co-workers he was married. He was seemingly living a double life right in front of me.
Days later, as I search through our home, I discover a hidden box of baby clothes that suggest my husband was starting to build the perfect life without me.
My entire career has been built on separating the truth from the lies. My husband may think he has pulled off the greatest lie of all but he is not the only one keeping a secret in this marriage.
All I know for certain is that when the truth comes out, only one of us will make it out alive.
A totally addictive and unputdownable psychological thriller about deadly obsession and twisted lies perfect for fans of Gone Girl, The Perfect Marriage, The Wife Before Me and anything by Freida McFadden.

Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for the ARC. This was not a bad book, but it was a little far fetched for me. Not my favorite.
This book, written by a talented and gifted author, is a cannot put down novel. Do not start at night…I read until the end. I could not guess the ending. This is a suspenseful story. Deceit, murder, and intrigue are at the center of this book. No one seems to be likable, but that happens in this genre. Secrets abound not to mention red herrings. This author surprised me often. This book was sent to me electronically by Netgalley for review. Thanks to the publisher and the author. Curl up in a comfy chair. Grab a warm throw. Get lost in the lives of these characters.
