Publisher's Summary

She’s a total stranger. But she knows who you are....

Suzi did a bad thing. She’s paying for it now, pregnant, scared, and living in an isolated cottage with her jealous husband, Nick.

When Nora moves into the only house nearby, Suzi is delighted to have a friend. So much so that she’s almost tempted to tell Nora her terrible secret. But there’s more to Nora than meets the eye. It’s impossible - does she already know what Suzi did?

Meanwhile, Elle spends her days in her perfect home, fixated on keeping up appearances. But when her husband betrays her, it unravels a secret going all the way back to her childhood. She’ll do whatever it takes to hold on to him, even if that means murder. After all, she’s done it before....

Caught up in their own secrets and lies, these strangers will soon realise they have more in common than they could ever have imagined. When a shocking event brings them together, their lives will never be the same again.

Confusing Narration, Drawn Out Story

NO SPOILERS! This book is very hard to understand who is speaking. Characters shift in the middle of chapters without an introduction and its very annoying. The story is so so but its more of a mystery drama.

Timeline transition jumpy

The story was great but this book jumped around way too much and the transitions were not smooth at all.

Confusing

I'm sure this is a good book but I couldn't keep up with it. After restarting numerous times I gave up sorry

PAY ATTENTION OR YOU WON'T KNOW WHO DID WHAT!!!

This is the 1st book by Claire McGowan that I've read. It has a complex storyline with many mischievous players. Add to that, the many interwoven twists&turns and it'd be easy to get lost in the maze of plots! But I enjoyed it none the less. Kudos Ms. McGowan!

great suspense!

this story keptme going with every twist and turn. I think the ending was quite fitting although I am hoping there will be a second book to see where everyone goes on and if tentatively made friendships will last.

Wow! Must read!

I am beyond impressed by this book! My first by the author and it was so enjoyable. The content all had a purpose and you don’t feel like the author is trying to take up space with non essential information. Twists and turns throughout!

good story not really believable

The story was Interesting with lots of twists and turns and you never really k ow which way it was going to go. The narration was great as well but in general the story line was not believable unless you are a woman who lived under a rock. With that being said I did still enjoy the story and wanted to see how it ended.

Takes concentration at first

storyline is initially confusing with the names changing. once you get the understanding that one individual goes by 3 different names, you can follow the story line. overall, an interesting book
