You wake up to find the man beside you is dead.
He is not your husband. This is not your bed.
What do you do?

Tara Logan lives a quiet life with her husband, Noah, and two children, teenager Rosie and eleven-year-old Spencer.

But her peace is shattered when she wakes in her neighbour Lee’s bed, with no memory of how she got there or what happened between them.
And worse – he has been stabbed to death.

Convinced she didn’t kill Lee, Tara stays silent, fearing the truth will rip her family apart.

But as her daughter spirals out of control, and her husband becomes increasingly distant, Tara soon realises that someone in her life knows what really happened to Lee. She must get to the truth before they do.

Tara made a mistake … but will one night cost her everything?

A gripping, shocking psychological thriller, with a twist that will take you by surprise.

My thoughts: This is the first book I've read by Kathryn Croft and let me tell you, it certainly won't be my last! This book was amazing - it is a tightly woven, twisted psychological thriller that starts off strong and never lets up...this book had me on the edge of my seat the entire time.

This is one of those books that the more you read, the more questions you end up with as there are so many twists and turns. You don't know who you can trust, you don't know what is going on but it's so good, you find yourself frantically flipping the pages, desperate to figure out this mystery.

Every time I thought I had figured out who really killed Lee, something would be discovered to disprove that...oh how frustrated I was getting! But in a good way...this is such a well-crafted, complex story. So much misdirection, so many red-herrings. 

The characters really come to life in this book. They are well-fleshed out and complex. And whether you end up liking them or not, most of them have secrets that give them the sense they could be "the one." Who can you trust?

I loved this book and will definitely be checking out Kathryn Crofts other books...I can't believe I haven't read her before!
