Zoe fainted on her wedding day, and she never knew why. She’s always felt sure something bad happened. Ten years later, she’s going to find out what…

It was supposed to be the happiest day of her life. Zoe was sitting in her hotel room, in her perfect white dress, looking forward to the moment when she would make kind, handsome Toby her husband.

Then, there was a blank.

They said she must have fainted, overcome with emotion. But nothing felt quite right afterward. Did something happen in that missing time?

Now, Toby and Zoe have two beautiful children and a perfect life. They’re planning their ten-year anniversary party for their family and friends. The invitations have been sent, the food ordered. They’re going back to the grand hotel where they got married.

But as the anniversary gets closer, it becomes clear not everyone is looking forward to celebrating. She catches Toby lying about where he’s been. One of her best friends seems to be ignoring her. And someone is spreading stories that might stop the party from happening at all.

Zoe is increasingly sure that she doesn’t have the full story. But does she want to know the truth, if it will destroy everything?



Amazing! Thrilling!  I could not put this book down and I was HOOKED from the first page!!

Seriously, if you have not had your eyes on this gripping, addictive thriller then you must add it to your TBR right now! You will devour this book and fly through the racing chapters as you unveil all the juicy, dark, twisty details of just what exactly is going on as the plot unfolds

The book is told from the pov of Zoe and follows her married life to Toby and their two young children. When Zoe and Toby got married 10 years ago Zoe ended up fainting and no memory of what happened to make her faint. Determined to go on with her wedding, even though she was dizzy and had a bump from her fall, she ended up walking down the aisle and marrying the handsome love of her life, Toby. Zoe has a wonderful life with her husband and children, and she gets along brilliantly with her mother and father-in-law.

I loved Zoe’s character and enjoyed reading from her pov. She was an interesting character and I liked hearing about her life and her views on everything. Like Zoe, I too was curious to know what exactly happened on her wedding day all those years ago that made her faint and what happened in those moments where she has lost her memory. I felt so bad for her leading up to her anniversary celebrations and everything that was seeming to go wrong – her husband lying to her, one of her good friends ignoring her, and someone spreading rumours about her. I was eager to get some answers along with Zoe and I enjoyed all the racing and edgy twists and turns this book has. Several shocking revelations and twists that you will not see coming, and that whopper of a twist at the end!?! I LOVED it!!

All of the stars for this book! I cannot wait to see what the author comes out with next!


MY RATING: 5/5 stars
