Summary: 
"Sarah Pinborough is about to become your new obsession."—Harlan Coben

Lisa is living a lie and everyone is about to find out.

Lisa lives for her daughter Ava, her job and her best friend Marilyn.

But when a handsome client shows an interest in her, Lisa starts daydreaming about sharing her life with him, too. Maybe she’s ready now. Maybe she can trust again. Maybe it's time to let her terrifying secret past go.

But when her daughter rescues a boy from drowning and their pictures are all over the news for everyone to see, Lisa's world explodes.

As she finds everything she has built threatened, and not knowing who she can trust, it's up to Lisa to face her past in order to save what she holds dear.

But someone has been pulling all their strings. And that someone is determined that both Lisa and Ava must suffer.

Because long ago Lisa broke a promise. And some promises aren't meant to be broken.



My thoughts: I became an immediate fan of Sarah Pinborough after reading, and loving, her book, Behind Her Eyes, which had one of the craziest, most amazing endings ever! Since then, I knew I would be reading more of this author because she has this uncanny knack for creating twisty psychological thrillers and she absolutely did it again with this book.

I loved that with this book, she doesn't give you one big crazy reveal like she did in the last one, but rather, she gives smaller ones throughout the book that still manage to shock you. It's this that keeps you flipping those pages because you aren't quite sure what to expect. 

I loved that there were multiple points of view here and everyone, and I mean everyone, had their secrets. It made it so hard to know who to trust here. There is definitely the vibe of the unreliable narrator, which I always love, and I feel that it is used so effectively here. 

The pacing of this novel really keeps you engaged and invested in what is going on. It does start off a little slow as you first get introduced to all the players, but then it takes all and never really slows down. It's divided into three parts and there are those revelations I mentioned above that happen at the end of each part that really hook you and beg you to keep reading to see where these reveals will lead you. 

I cannot wait to read more from this talented author. She has a new book coming out, Dead to Her, next month and I am so excited to read it. And I still need to read all of her backlist - don't you love when you know you have more books of a favorite author to look forward to?
