Many thanks to Anne Cater and Random Things Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.
A gripping tale that kept me one way then the other with the twists it enfolded within its pages. A domestic noir like no other where mirage and reality were merged like a chameleon.
Alex, wife Natalie, and daughter Jade lived a happy, stable life until a fire at home destroyed their apparent peace. Natalie came out without a scratch, and Jade was in hospital, insisting that she saw a man at home before the fire. Natalie called it hallucination. Whom did Alex believe, his child or his second wife? He went in search of answers.
My first book by author Rebecca Fleet, I was gripped from the first page with the scene of the fire. The whispers of doubt reached me as the pages turned. I searched for clues which ran subtly in the book. The author was pretty clever in hiding them.
Secrets seemed to be abounding in the hearts all the characters, their lives were upturned as the story moved on. Some were shocking, and that made it thrilling to read. As a reader I loved when they turned darker. Having an inkling to the reveal (you see, I did interpret the clues correctly) I was happy to be right and quite shocked at some others.
Swift paced, chameleon characters, secret lives, past stories, lies and final truth made this book a fantastic thriller.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Everyone brings baggage to a new relationship.
When Alex met Natalie she changed his life. After the tragic death of his first wife, which left him a single parent to teenage daughter Jade, he’s determined to build a happy family.
But his new-found happiness is shattered when the family home is gutted by fire and his loyalties are unexpectedly tested. Jade insists she saw a man in the house on the night of the fire; Natalie denies any knowledge of such an intruder.
Alex is faced with an impossible choice: to believe his wife or his daughter? And as Natalie’s story unravels, Alex realises that his wife has a past he had no idea about, a past that might yet catch up with her.
But this time, the past could be deadly . . .
