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!

This book had a promising start, it had a overall good story plot and I also liked the characters, but then the book started to drag out and most of the characters were all focused on the same issue and told about that issue over and over, then the ending was what made this book worse, it ended with no closure on the main characters.. crazy bc the author was very lengthy in all the other chapters till the ending..maybe it will have a sequel if it does I will probably read it so I can find out how everything ends..
So incredibly unrealistic at any level.
Started off interestingly but...the path the author took was a little extreme thus making it not relatable or believable and definitely not a thriller. Uncertain as to what made a reviewer call it a thriller.
Poorly written and so boring
Rarely do I quit reading after a dozen pages but this book discouraged further reading. I did not make it through the free sample. Characters are flat, cliched and the premise is absurd. Shouldn’t a thriller thrill or at least hint at thrills to come. Skip this one.
