“I’m a survivor.”
Kaitlin is a devoted mother trying to recover from her previous marriage. Her current fiancée seems perfect. Greg is caring, kind, and loyal. He is pushing for a wedding very soon, but Kaitlin wants to see the positive. Zöe is coming home with her tail between her legs and a secret. It would seem she isn’t the only one.
This was a twisted ride from start to finish. Just when I thought I knew who had done it, another wrench was thrown into the mix.
The characters were great, and the personalities were all bold. I enjoyed the themes throughout this novel, and the way the story was told was incredibly clever.
I love the bond between Kaitlin and Zöe was beautiful. Women taking care of women. The sisterhood was strong between them. I enjoyed their connection, history, and dynamic.
There were several plot twists I did not see coming. And they were delivered beautifully. The twists were so well planned, and the execution was seamless.
The pacing was perfect, and the intensity was spot on. The last half of this book makes it impossible to put down. I found myself captivated and had to finish reading to know what had happened.
Secrets, lies, and devious desires are dangerous.
