Thank you to the publisher for gifting me a physical copy of this book to read and share my review with others.



THE WIFE: For Alice, life has never been better. With her second husband, she has a successful business, two children, and a beautiful house.

HER HUSBAND: Alice knows that life could have been different if her first husband had lived, but Nathan’s arrival into her life gave her back the happiness she craved.

HER BEST FRIEND: Through the ups and downs of life, from celebratory nights out to comforting each other through loss, Alice knows that with her best friend Beth by her side, they can survive anything together. So when Nathan starts acting strangely, Alice turns to Beth for help. But soon, Alice begins to wonder whether her trust has been misplaced . . .

The first mistake could be her last.



This book! Wow!! After reading (AND LOVING) Sandie Jones’ first novel The Other Woman, I knew I had to get my hands on this book ASAP! And I was NOT disappointed! Who doesn’t love a good thrill of a book that will have you gasping, guessing (and second guessing) and sitting on the edge of your seat!? 

This book takes you on a wild ride that explores lies, betrayal, deception and secrets. I really liked Alice’s character. I felt sorry for her losing her first husband and reading about her loss and devastation after his death. Thankfully she was given a second chance at true love when she met Nathan. Their life is great together and they are happy with two children. Her best friend Beth has always been there for her. Suddenly, when Nathan and Beth meet for the first time things turn weird.. Nathan acts strangely and Alice cannot figure out what is going on. Is he hiding something? What could it be?

When things aren’t always as they seem, who can you turn to for the truth? Who can you believe?

A fabulous book that I devoured and loved right through to the very shocking end!


MY RATING: 5/5 stars
