ABOUT THE BOOK:
She stole my husband. So I’d steal her life.
Lane won Candace’s heart over chocolate martinis and karaoke. But weeks into their whirlwind marriage, Candace realized Lane came with burdensome baggage in the form of his possessive live-in sister and her eerily watchful six-year-old son. Lane had a secret that seemed to hold him hostage, and Candace would do anything to uncover it.
Harper was the kind of woman who cooked homemade meals and dusted under the furniture. It was the least she could do for her brother after her husband’s mysterious death, and Lane took her and her kids in. Then Candace showed up like a tornado passing through, threatening and destructive. But Harper had other plans for her new “sister,” plans Lane could never find out about.
All Lane had ever wanted was a white-picket-fence life. The wife. The two-point-five kids. The happy little family. Everything seemed to be falling into place with Candace … until Harper’s jealous streak got in the way, again. But choosing between his sister and wife would be costly … and knowing Harper, the price would be blood.
I enjoyed reading this novel and discovering the relationships between Harper, her brother Lane and Lane’s significant other Candace. There are so many mysterious questions that you want answered, such as what truly happened to Harper’s husband? There are so many secrets and lies, and throw into that mix family dynamics. Torn between his wife and his sister, Lane is caught in the middle. He wants to support his wife but he also wants to support his sister. What is he to do? Is blood thicker than water?
I enjoyed the chapters in this novel and reading as the story evolved. There are plenty of shocking twists and turns, and revelations that will keep you interested until the end. Why is Harper so jealous? Why can’t they all just get along and be a happy family? You’ll have to read this book to find out.
MY REVIEW: 3 stars
