Ryan and Grace are finally about to take their honeymoon. They have been married for six months now and they seem happy. Ryan has found a beautiful yet isolated cabin and the two of them should really enjoy one another. However, disturbing events begin occcuring in quick succession, but Ryan is rather reticent when it comes to going to the police.
This doesn't really surprise Grace. She knows about something that Ryan did years ago and it is a great secret. When it seems that their very lives are threatened could it be tied to what Ryan is hiding? Then there is the fact that they had run across a homeless man in the woods. Could that man be the source of their troubles? If so, will things get even worse and more dangerous?
At some point during the book the viewpoint begins to change. This is pivotal to an already thrilling book that has incredible tension. When this twist happened I was even more drawn into the chilling story. What was the connection? Who was creating problems for Ryan and Grace? Lies and secrets soon give way to nail-biting tension and a jaw-dropping conclusion.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
