It's been a whilesince I read a book quite so satisfying. This story has a compelling plot, characters I wanted to see happy, and a lot of thought-provoking moments. The first-person narration gave me a direct look inside the protagonist's head, and the fast pace kept the momentum going throughout. I especially like how this book examines marriage, in particular trust, and asks and answers the questions how well do you know your partner and ultimately, yourself? I definitely recommend this book!!.

Louise has always known that if the truth ever came out, she could stand to lose everything. Her job. Her son. Her freedom. Maria's sudden reappearance threatens it all and forces Louise to reconnect with everyone with whom she'd severed ties in order to escape the past. But as she tries to piece together exactly what happened that night, Louise discovers there's more to the story than she ever knew. To keep her secret, Louise must first uncover the whole truth, before what's known to Maria - or whoever is pretending to be her - is known to all.

The title of this book made me want to read, and I was hooked from the first word! The story moves along at a great pace, and events are revealed slowly enough to heighten tension and create suspense. Using social media to draw the reader in was very effective. I look forward to more books by this author. She really knows how to create real characters who experience conflict and difficulties, and exhibit amazing strength and patience. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves psychological thrillers, suspenseful plots, and just amazing reads in general. What a great listen!!!!
