Lorna has a secret, one so huge that, if discovered, will ruin her marriage and family Even more is at stake – that of her career. She is a therapist and her secret is that she had an affair with one of her patients, Andrew. Although she ended things nearly a year ago, she knows that her life will be destroyed if she were to be ever found out. In order to function, she has tightly constructed her daily life. She is also suffering extreme angst due to the death of her father when she was a child.
Everything spins out of control when Andrew contacts her again, determined to pick up where they left off. Almost unable to help herself, Lorna begins taking risks, putting all she holds dear in jeopardy. But then, Andrew is found dead and her world is truly turned upside down.
Told from varying points of view, this book held my attention fairly well. While it was often painful to read how Lorna made one bad choice after another, there were enough twists and turns that were just enough to keep me riveted to the story. The ending was a complete shocker.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review.
