A difficult book to review. I read most of the book with bated breath waiting for the massive twist which I was sure was just right the corner. Author J. A. Andrews managed to capture my senses, in curiosity and anticipation.

Michael was mowed down and run over. Gary was the last witness. Wife Jenny and his parents were traumatized. Secrets were posted which shocked Jenny.

My second book by this author, I liked the beginning. It got my juices of imagination flowing. With the title and blurb, I was quite excited about the heady hit of a thriller. Steady paced, the book showed me Jenny’s life as she looked after her son and managed to wrap her head around the secrets. The mother-in-law too managed to add lines of suspense.

Then came my niggles. More of suspense, less of internal monologue, added twists would have made this rocking. But I still managed to read it lickety-split.

Overall, a fun breakfast read.

I received a ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

The only thing she was guilty of was trusting him

All Jenny Clifton ever wanted was to be the ideal wife and mother. When she married Michael in a fairytale wedding, followed by the birth of baby Daniel, her life was complete.

Yet just three years later, the shine has faded. Now, money is tight, and the occasional argument has become daily screaming matches between Jenny and Michael.

Something needs to change… and it does, when Michael is killed in a brutal hit and run, breathing his last with a stranger holding his hand.

Lonely and distraught, Jenny strikes up an unlikely friendship with the witness to the accident, clinging to the connection with the man who watched Michael die.

But as she uncovers the secrets that her husband was keeping, Jenny realises that her perfect life may have been a perfect lie – and worse, that her new friend may be harbouring dangerous secrets of his own…
