When you have nothing to lose, how far will you go to save yourself?
Everyone in Whitaker was sure Olivia Miller shot her husband, until Marcus Rowe confessed. But a month before the trial, Marcus has been proved innocent—putting Olivia back in the frame.
Olivia is the first to admit she isn’t perfect. She’s made a lot of mistakes in her life, the worst of which was marrying Dane Miller. She fell for his kind eyes, his lack of judgement—she thought she could be free with him. That was before the chaotic parties, the dangerous friends, the lies… But one bad choice shouldn’t mean a life sentence. Now her friends are turning away from her, gossiping about her wherever she goes, wondering when she’ll be arrested this time.
Olivia isn’t going to run from the stares, from the whispers, from the doubts. She won’t leave her beloved son behind, or give her ex-husband Frank and his new wife any excuse to stop her seeing him. And if the police and the world think she’s guilty, there’s only one thing she can do—prove her innocence herself.
But if Marcus didn’t murder her husband, then the real killer is still out there.
And they’re not going to want Olivia stirring up the past…
An absolutely gripping, heart-pounding suspense novel about bad choices and second chances. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, Karin Slaughter and Lisa Gray.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
This thriller had us hooked almost immediately. It wastes no time in plonking us into a pretty delicious scenario: Olivia Miller has an entire town assuming she murdered her husband, the reckless, selfish and dishonest Dane Miller. She’s the prime suspect with the walls closing in but won’t consider going on the run for the love of her son, so embarks on a dangerous mission to clear her name. From here, Miranda Smith cranks up the tension and the shocking twists before building to an explosive, deeply rewarding climax.
