ABOUT THE BOOK:
Tabitha Girard had her heart broken years ago by Connor Ford. He was preppy and handsome. She was a pool girl at his country club. Their affair should have been a summer fling. But it meant everything to Tabitha.
Years later, Connor comes back into Tabitha’s life—older, richer, and desperately unhappy. He married for money, a wealthy, neurotic, controlling woman whom he never loved. He has always loved Tabitha.
When Connor’s wife Nina takes her own life, he’s free. He can finally be with Tabitha. Nina’s home, Windswept, can be theirs. It seems to be a perfect ending to a fairy tale romance that began so many years ago. But then, Tabitha finds a diary. “I’m writing this to raise an alarm in the event of my untimely death,” it begins. “If I die unexpectedly, it was foul play, and Connor was behind it. Connor—and her.”
Who is Connor Ford? Why did he marry Nina? Is Tabitha his true love, or a convenient affair? As the police investigate Nina’s death, is she a convenient suspect?
As Tabitha is drawn deeper into the dark glamour of a life she is ill-prepared for, it becomes clear to her that what a wife knows can kill her.
A great thriller of a novel that will leave you hooked as you read through the pages. I enjoyed reading about Tabitha and Connor’s past and often felt sorry for their chance of a life of love together. Fast forward many years later, they are now adults, and Connor is married to a rich and successful woman and living a life of luxury. Connor bumps into Tabitha all these years later at her place of work and she cannot believe she is staring at the man she loved and lost all those years ago. Can it truly be him?
I loved the suspense and thrills that build up as you read through the chapters. Not everything is as it appears to be, not everyone is who they pretend to be, and what you learn about some of these characters will shock you. I loved the suspense of the storyline and watching it all unfold. A definite must-add to your TBR list for 2020.
MY RATING: 4/5 stars
