My husband has been keeping secrets for a long time. He thinks I don’t know what he does outside of this house. But I know everything…
Karla watches silently as Jason hurriedly packs his belongings into a suitcase. She knows that her stillness is unnerving him as she watches his every move from the doorway of their bedroom.
Clothes are screwed up and packed into the case, along with a watch she bought him for his last birthday and his precious laptop. He takes everything from his bedside table. Everything except the framed wedding photo, which now stands alone. Karla strains to see the smiling faces in the photo. If only she knew then what she knows now.
‘I’ve fallen in love with someone else,’ he’d said to her, just moments earlier. The brutality of those words hit Karla hard and she struggled to breathe as she took in each word in turn.
You may think you know what Karla will do next. But you’ll be wrong. Because Karla isn't who you think she is. Only she knows what's about to happen. And you will never see it coming.
An absolutely gripping psychological thriller for readers who loved The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl and The Other Woman. With twists you’ll never see coming, you will not be able to put this one down!

Secrets, Lies and Deception
You'd be mistaken to think that this is just a normal ‘husband leaves his wife for another woman and wife wants revenge’ novel BUT that couldn’t be further from the truth! Every character has a secret and will go to any length to keep it except, that is, if you are a father who openly despises your daughters husband, in which case you will go to any length to destroy their marriage!
This book will take you through all emotions before you reach the conclusion and even then you will be left with some questions.
I’ve read one other book by this author and wasn’t overly impressed but I’m glad I gave this book a shot and will certainly recommend this one and read more of her books.
Thank you Bookouture and NetGalley for an early release copy.
