    Compelling story.

    Justin is a good, solid man. He is a busy doctor, caring husband and wonderful father. Justin has come a long way in his life. Before his first child was born, suffered great loss and was almost completely lost, and his marriage almost destroyed. Never would he have imagined the far-reaching effects of that unbelievable time in his life. His wife, Alicia, is wracked by guilt. She is hiding a huge secret from Justin. She feels that this secret will lead to the ultimate destruction of her family. Well, her fears may just have been realized. When a man from her past, Paul Radley, shows up at her sister's birthday party, Alicia begins to unravel. She is determined to protect her family, even telling lies to perpetuate her secret. Due to the actions of a crude hit-and-run driver, their sweet baby Luke loses his precious little life. Justin is convinced that it is his fault driving while distracted, and exhausted due to a tough shift at the hospital. Alicia thinks it is her fault because it is repayment for her lies, that she is being punished, and her family is paying the highest price imaginable. In the middle of all of this tragedy is fifteen-year-old Sophie. The loss of her little brother is completely unbearable for her. She then witnesses a strange interaction between her parents and when she decides to spend time with her aunt, she overhears something that turns her life upside down. She suddenly disappears, and her parents, albeit separately, desperately begin searching for her. While this story could have been one of family angst and righting one's wrongs, as well as healing, it was indeed so much more. It was full of incredible twists and turns. So many questions need answering. What does Paul Radley want all of these years later? Why does Alicia keep lying? How strong is Justin? And, finally, what of Sophie? Will she be safe now that she has run off? These questions and more are answered, but not before surprises abound in this story. I was riveted to this story, especially as it was told by multiple points of view, allowing me to strongly connect to each character. The conclusion came as quite a shock in this compelling story, which was a true page-turner. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I really enjoyed this book especially the end. Its not at all what you expect from the title, but the turn of events and direction of the story is written very well and unsupecting.

    Excellent domestic thriller with exciting twists

    This book hooked me from the start and I had goosebumps return again and again throughout.  The characters immediately come to life and I was left thinking about them long after finishing the book. There are twists and surprises throughout the book which keep you guessing until the final twist. I received an eARC copy from NetGalley and Bookouture and immediately got myself settled and started to read. It took me less than 6 hours to read cover to cover.  I simply can’t “do” life when I have a Sheryl Browne book on my kindle to read! Have since also purchased ebook and paperback versions.
