Thank you to the publisher for the eARC of this book via NetGalley.



Literary agent Viola Matthews is sure she’s met Katherine Baxter before. So when her husband and bestselling novelist Samuel Morton introduces Viola to the quiet, unassuming woman he has offered to mentor, she knows their paths have crossed before. The question is where?

As their worlds collide and the bond between Samuel and Katherine deepens, Viola realises she must take control.

If Viola is right, then Katherine needs to pay for something that happened twelve years ago.



This was an enjoyable read that will keep you guessing and wanting to know more. When Viola is introduced to Katherine, a woman her author husband has introduced her to as the woman he will mentor, Viola is certain they have met before. But where would that have been? Could Viola be mistaken?

Katherine is a married mom with a controlling husband. Her husband Paul doesn’t want her to have much of a life outside the home and being a mother and wife. He certainly doesn’t agree with her pursuing a career in writing or being an author at all. Regardless of his wishes Katherine decides to move forward with her dream of becoming a writer.

I found myself wanting to know more about Viola and Katherine and their history together. What happened between them? Do they truly know one another? You’ll have to read the book to find out.


MY RATING: 4/5 stars
