Publisher's Summary

Karen Bloom is not the coddling mother type. She believes that tough discipline is the true art of parenting. She expects her husband and her children to perform at 200 percent, no matter the cost. But her unending quest for excellence causes her seemingly flawless family to rebel against her.

Karen's husband Noel is a handsome doctor with a proclivity for alcohol and women. Their prodigy daughter, Bronte, excels yet longs to run away. Verity, Noel's teenage daughter from his first marriage, is starting to display aggressive behavior. And Karen's son from a previous relationship falls deeper into drug use.

When tragedy strikes the Blooms, Karen's carefully constructed facade begins to fall apart - and once the deadly cracks appear, they are impossible to stop.

Another EXCELLENT audible book by Paula Daly!!!

This author is the most consistent writer I have read, EVER! Her books grab you at the start and don't let go until you've listened to the book in its entirety. I had read negative reviews and almost didn't get this one but the 4 books I had read previously by Daly had kept me mesmerized, so I ignored the negative and I am very happy I read this one. I keep thinking how much like author Lisa Jewell her books are but I believe Daly is a bit better. Could they be the same person? I wonder. Don't be afraid to read all of Paula Dalys books. They are all very good!! My favorite is What Kind of Mother Are You, then Open Your Eyes, Keep Your Friends Close, The Mistake I Made and this last one, The Trophy Child but they are all very enjoyable. Paula Daly please write more books!!!!
