“The novel’s plot is as provocative as its title."--Washington Post 
The addictive psychological thriller that's a national bestseller.

When young lawyer Lily marries Ed, she’s determined to make a fresh start. To leave the secrets of the past behind. But then she takes on her first murder case and meets Joe. A convicted murderer whom Lily is strangely drawn to. For whom she will soon be willing to risk almost anything. 

But Lily is not the only one with secrets. Her next-door neighbor Carla may be only nine, but she has already learned that secrets are powerful things. That they can get her whatever she wants.

When Lily finds Carla on her doorstep sixteen years later, a chain of events is set in motion that can end only one way.

    The writer did a great job and the twist were very good!
  • Disappointed

    By Hooty75
    I didn’t really care for this book :( It seemed like there was a lot crammed in the end of the book. And just too much tragedy. It didn’t leave you feeling good in the end. Unsettling
  • Not quite as good as it sounds

    By Linds_Alt
    The premise of the book is good but the storyline falls a little flat. It’s pretty easy to “guess what’s going to happen next.” The characters are fairly one dimensional and hard to relate to personally. Also, the author’s writing style is a bit unconventional in that she tends to jump around timelines and the flow is off at some points. It was a nice try, but it doesn’t quite hit the mark.
  • Stunning

    Jane Corey keeps you on your toes on this novel. Nothing is as it seems. A must read!
  • Good but not amazing

    “Part 1” is BRILLIANT and captivating. “Part 2” is slightly rushed feeling and somewhat chaotic/all over the place.
  • Whatever

    This book is all over the place. It seems the author was not sure what to do next so to be safe left all options open... I disliked all characters.
  • All over the place

    By BPF72
    I feel like the author had several ideas and decided to cram them all into one book regardless of whether that made sense or not. Like other reviewers, I hated the characters. I felt like the author breezes through major plot developments and left me wondering if I’d missed some details. I really did not like the writing style at all. (Also, I have never seen so many exclamation points in one book and as soon as I noticed it, it drove me crazy!).

  • Very good in the beginning...

    By MizMonet
    Started off intriguing and captivating...but towards the middle end I didn’t care about any of the characters and was just ready to finish the book.
  • Decent read but not great

    By Momima99
    This book started out strong in the first half. During the second half, the plot was all over the place and the characters were no longer interesting or very well written. I finished it just to finish, but became bored.
