Publisher's Summary

Paige Donahue has always lived in her sister Camille's shadow. As children, Camille had the grades, the friends, and their parents' love, while Paige was left with hand-me-downs and criticism. Now, as adults, Camille lives an idyllic life with her husband, Pierce, and her two perfect children in a beautiful home, while Paige is stuck in a small condo with bills she can't afford to pay. But no more. With seeds of doubt planted in both Camille's and Pierce's minds, Paige's plan to steal her brother-in-law starts to work. But when he reveals his decision to make his marriage work, a desperate Paige moves from envy to madness. What results from her dangerous scheme is something no one could have imagined.

Predictable but recommended

At first I was excited about this book because she is one of my favorite authors. Unfortunately, as the book progressed, it became boring and predictable. Overall, I recommend this read to others

The title doesn't fit the read

I struggle with this book because I didn't like the moral of the story. This book was not a good plot.

Best out of many

I've read plenty of books by this author and she has really outdone herself. I love how redeemable Pierce is and it reminds me that Christ really does still create MEN with hearts after His own. Even Camilla's love endures for them both. Gives me hope & reminds me that the goodness God gives is unbreakable & how much I love my husband.
