When Claire sees Hannah Wilson at an exclusive Manhattan hair salon, it's like a knife slicing through barely healed scars. It may have been 10 years since Claire last saw Hannah, but she has thought of her every day, and not in a good way. So Claire does what anyone would do in her position — she stalks her.
Hannah is now Mrs. Carter, living the charmed life that should have been Claire's. It's the life Claire used to have before Hannah came along and took it all away from her.
Back then, Claire was a happy teenager with porcelain skin and long blond wavy hair. Now she's an overweight, lazy drunk with hair the color of compost and skin to match. And that’s why when Hannah advertises for a housekeeper, Claire is confident she can apply and not be recognized — especially since she has time on her hands, revenge on her mind, and a talent for acting....
What better way to seek retribution — and redress — than from within the beautiful Mrs. Hannah Carter's own home?
But it's not just Claire who has secrets. Everyone in that house seems to have something to hide.
And now, there's no way out.

The title is fine
Great book, suspenseful. My problem was, this is the 3rd book I’ve listened to (not just this author) and the main characters who are supposed to be young, sound middle aged. It throws me off. After hearing the premise and the age of the main character, I repeatedly thought, she’s too old to be doing that, but had to remind myself she’s 24, not 44. I initially kept listening to hear her get her comeuppance in the end for being middle aged and dumb.
The book started super slow, and boring. But once they finally got to point it was completely unexpected and interesting.
Narration is Fire
The best part about this book was the narration. I could feel how everyone felt. It made the plot even better. But the story was fantastic. I loved it. It kept me on my toes the whole entire time.
