Publisher's Summary

Betrayal was just the beginning....

Melanie Hale is a devoted mother to her two children, a diligent caregiver to her ailing mother-in-law, and a trusted neighbor in their wealthy Louisiana community. Above all, she’s a loving partner to her wonderful husband, Collin.

Then there are the parts of herself that Mel keeps hidden. She’s exhausted, worried, and unfulfilled. So much so that one night, after a writers’ group meeting, Mel begins an affair with a successful local author named Luke. Suddenly she’s transformed into a role she doesn’t recognize - a woman who deceives with unseemly ease. A woman who might be capable of just about anything.

When Mel finds Luke’s dead body in his lavish rented house, she realizes just how high the stakes have become. Not only does she have to keep her affair a secret in order to preserve her marriage, but she desperately needs to avoid being implicated in Luke’s death. But who would want to kill him? Who else in her life is keeping secrets? And most terrifying of all, how far will they - and she - go to keep those secrets hidden?

Hard to keep listening

My hate for the lead character grew with every chapter. she really did make horrible decisions and just kept making a mess of it. I made it to the end but just. I have no idea why we had to hear about her mother in law, and all that busoness.. it had absolutely nothing to do with the story. I love Xe Sands so I hung in there..but I dont recommend it.

Good but unoriginal.

So overall it was pretty good but from the beginning the first thing came to my mind was the movie “Unfaithful”. It was pretty much copied from the movie still enjoyable though.

Consummately great edge of your seat thriller, replete with fully drawn and relatable characters. The most spot on, talented narrator I have listened to this year. A+

The book is suspenseful and keeps you guessing. The narrator has the perfect voice. I will be shopping for books from this author.

Fantastic!

This book is thoughtful, intriguing, and fresh. The characters were fully realized, acted accordingly, and pulled me into the story again and again. I highly recommend it.
