From the USA Today bestselling author of Little Deadly Secrets comes a gripping story about the frailty of family and a battle of wills between a wife and a sister-in-law, bent on revenge.
She stole my husband. So I’d steal her life.
Lane won Candace’s heart over chocolate martinis and karaoke. But weeks into their whirlwind marriage, Candace realized Lane came with burdensome baggage in the form of his possessive live-in sister and her eerily watchful six-year-old son. Lane had a secret that seemed to hold him hostage, and Candace would do anything to uncover it.
Harper was the kind of woman who cooked homemade meals and dusted under the furniture. It was the least she could do for her brother after her husband’s mysterious death, and Lane took her and her kids in. Then Candace showed up like a tornado passing through, threatening and destructive. But Harper had other plans for her new “sister,” plans Lane could never find out about.
All Lane had ever wanted was a white-picket-fence life. The wife. The two-point-five kids. The happy little family. Everything seemed to be falling into place with Candace … until Harper’s jealous streak got in the way, again. But choosing between his sister and wife would be costly … and knowing Harper, the price would be blood.
I Couldn't Put It Down. And I Didn't Want To.
This book. Wow. First let me say it gave me all kinds of feelings. Heartbreak. Excitement. Tears. Laughter. Thrills. It had everything: relatable family dynamics, the pain of loss, motherhood drama, in-law strife, and of course a mystery to solve and secrets to unravel. Everything about this book was perfection.
Harper and Lane are brother and sister, and after Harper's husband commits suicide, she's unable to get back on her feel as she's steeping in depression and guilt. So she moves in with Lane with her kids while she heals. Except Lane met someone--Candace. A gorgeous woman with a dark past that instantly strikes a nerve with Harper. Apparently Candace's past is trying to catch up with her, and Lane could end up in the crossfire. What else could a protective sister do but get involved?
Add to it that Harper is hiding something of her own, something she's never told anyone, not even her late husband. She's hiding a secret for one of her kids, and it's a deadly one.
The perfect blend of everything psychological thriller lovers will enjoy, with a twist I never expected. Though in typical Pamela Crane style, she always has been a master at the twist ending. 5 unputdownable stars!
