APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In Shalini Boland’s capable hands, a dream marriage turns into a complete nightmare. Zoe has spent the past decade feeling great about her life with Toby, but as their 10th anniversary fast approaches, she’s begun asking questions. Why did she black out right before their wedding? And why have Toby and her sister both been acting so strangely about the upcoming anniversary party? Boland places us directly inside Zoe’s head with an urgent up-closeness that made us feel all of her confusion and fear—especially as her discoveries go from worrying to dangerous. We kept wondering if her marriage would survive her quest to discover the frightening truth. Or worse, would she?
