I finally have everything I ever wanted. A home with floor-to-ceiling windows, a devoted husband who dazzles everyone he meets, and two angelic children I adore. But as I watch my husband chatting with the girl next door, I wonder if anyone can see the sadness in my pretty pink smile, or hear the scream behind my straight white teeth?
I know I’m crazy to think there’s a hint of desire in his eyes.
I know it’s madness to see a flicker of fear in hers.
I know all this, because I’ve been wrong before.
And if I’m wrong again, he’ll try to take my children away.
The party is my last chance to prove to my husband that I’m on the mend, that I can handle something as simple as a drinks reception without snapping under the pressure. It’s all going perfectly, until I see something in the swimming pool that changes everything. But if I can’t trust myself to believe it’s real, who will?
A totally unputdownable page-turner about the darker side of love and what really goes on under the surface of perfect-looking lives. Clever and unexpected, this book will have you gripped from the very first page until the dramatic final twist. Fans of The Wife Between Us and The Mother-in-Law will be hooked.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Every family has its secrets, but some are darker than others. Devoted wife Elizabeth Huxley lives in a picturesque English mansion with her two adorable children and her husband, Lucas, an ambitious man with dazzling charisma. But when she notices a mysterious connection brewing between Lucas and Heather, the gardener’s daughter, her veneer of perfection begins to crack—and not for the first time. Before we knew it, dark and horrifying truths were surfacing in the family’s world. Alternating the story between Elizabeth’s and Heather’s perspectives, Clare Boyd masterfully amps up the intensity with each shocking new betrayal. Soon, the twists cascade into a series of terrifying questions about who’s gaslighting whom—and if any of the people in this web of deceit can really be trusted.

That’s a great book to read
Thank you for your time
From reading some reviews I thought this would be a good book. Did not like it at all. Did not like how the narrator changed each chapter.
On the edge
Good book, keeps you on the edge from page 1 to the end.
