Summary: When Aimee comes home and discovers her husband is missing, she doesn’t seem to know what to do or how to act. The police think she’s hiding something and they’re right, she is―but perhaps not what they thought. Aimee has a secret she’s never shared, and yet, she suspects that someone knows. As she struggles to keep her career and sanity intact, her past comes back to haunt her in ways more dangerous than she could have ever imagined.


Review: Halfway through, I thought I had it all figured out. Up until the last twenty pages, I thought I figured it out. Boy was I wrong. Feeney works in a twist that seems unbelievable, but totally works. It leaves the reader completely shocked, without feeling fooled. This is an interesting story, following two separate timelines that eventually converge. I found myself pulled through this book quite quickly, wanting to know with each turn of the page what happens next. Feeney does a great job making her main character quite relatable while also making the reader slightly uncomfortable with the situation she’s put her in. I would recommend this book to anyone who appreciates a good psychological thriller.


Mommy Readability Rating: This was a fairly quick and easy read. The chapters are short, providing for quick reading sections. The story, however, is quite compelling, often making it difficult to put the book down. I would warn that child abduction does occur in the story, which may be a trigger for some parents.
