Thank you to Head Of Zeus and NetGalley for the free ARC copy of this book! I was so excited to read this book after reading the description and was thrilled to begin.

The words to describe this book – thrilling, chilling, and lies! And that cover!? Oh my gosh, it gives me chills. I loved this book from beginning to end. It was very well written and I loved it from the beginning. I was hooked from the start and it kept my interest throughout the entire book, as I read more and more to see what would happen next. There wasn’t a dull moment at all in this book and I loved that.  There are so many shocking revelations, twists and turns, betrayal and lies.

This book follows the story of the Wilborg family – Cecilia, her husband  and their two daughters. Cecilia has it all – a loving and devoted husband who is very successful at his job and makes a lot of money, two beautiful daughters, and a lovely big home. To everyone in their community, Cecilia has a perfect life. Cecilia works very hard to keep up that image.

One day while Cecilia is leaving the community pool with her daughters, one of the workers at the pool asks if Cecilia will take a little boy with her and drop him off at his home. It appears the little boy was dropped off at the pool and someone hadn’t yet shown up to pick him up and the pool was closing. Cecilia wasn’t happy with this, but decided to take the boy with them, and took him to the address given to her to where the boy lived. When they arrive at the house, it appears to be abandoned. Cecilia asks the little boy if this is the correct address and the boy is adamant that it is. Cecilia and the boy enter the home (the door is unlocked) only to find it empty and barren. The boy couldn’t possibly live here?!?

The boy doesn’t say a lot, mostly nodding and shaking his head in answer to many questions. He does speak randomly, but getting him to talk is rare. Not wanting to leave the child alone in what appears to be an abandoned and run down house all alone, she is not sure what to do with the boy. With no other choice, Cecilia takes him back to her place until she can find out who the child belongs to and how to get in touch with them.

Cecilia is confused. Why would someone drop the young boy off at the pool and then not return for him? What was she going to do with the boy? He couldn’t possibly live with her and her family in her house?

Without giving too much away this book was seriously amazing! I loved it from beginning to end. Great for fans of any type of thriller books. Read this one, you won’t be disappointed!
