Description

You wake up to find the man beside you is dead. 
He is not your husband. This is not your bed. 

Tara Logan lives a quiet life with her husband, Noah, and two children, teenager Rosie and eleven-year-old Spencer. 

But her peace is shattered when she wakes in her neighbour Lee’s bed, with no memory of how she got there or what happened between them. 
And worse – he has been stabbed to death.

Convinced she didn’t kill Lee, Tara stays silent, fearing the truth will rip her family apart.

But as her daughter spirals out of control, and her husband becomes increasingly distant, Tara soon realises that someone in her life knows what really happened to Lee. She must get to the truth before they do. 

Tara made a mistake … but will one night cost her everything?

A gripping, shocking psychological thriller, with a twist that will take you by surprise.

Will engross fans of Gone Girl, Behind Closed Doors, andThe Girl on the Train.

    I don't read much but I could not put this book down! You spend the whole book wanting to know more and more and never truly know what is going on until the very end. Well done!

    Really enjoyed reading this book. Once I got into it I couldn't put it down until I reached the end. Only 4 stars because I reserve 5 for those very rare masterpieces.

    I've thoroughly enjoyed every other of her books. They've have kept me engrossed and guessing right to the end, the story going off in directions I'd never have expected. This one one also kept me guessing, and definitely spiralled into unexpected and multiple directions, all of which were never explored in any depth. The start was great, promising a great tale but the majority was plodding and the ending was totally unbelievable for me.
  • Best book in ages
