The day of their dreams was nothing short of a nightmare.

On the one-year anniversary of her wedding, Colbie Moore's life looks nothing like it should.

Still grieving the loss of the man she meant to spend her life with, Colbie prepares for a weekend away to take her mind off her heartache, but the simple plan results in much more than she bargained for.

A box of letters, meant for the bride and groom to open on their anniversary, is instead opened by Colbie and her three best friends—Miles, James, and Eric.

And what it holds could ruin everything.

A mysterious note from a surprising sender shocks Colbie, propelling her down a dark path to discover the truth about the man she loved—his life and his death—before it's too late.

Soon, Colbie begins to question everyone around her as the mystery unravels.

What was Phil hiding from her when he died?

What secrets are still hidden?

The closer she gets to answers, the clearer it becomes that someone has gone to great lengths to protect their lies.

And if she pushes any more, everything she has left could be exactly what she stands to lose.

Is it worth risking everything to truly know the man she's already lost?

After all, she's been warned…she might not be able to handle what she finds.

A heart-wrenching domestic suspense about love, loss, and deception from bestselling author Kiersten Modglin.

Colbie Moore is about to celebrate the most unusual of wedding anniversaries. It is one year after she was to say I do to a husband that died unexpectedly just before she got the chance. Together with her three best friends, Miles, James, and Eric, Colbie is ready to open a box of letters, letters meant to be opened by her and her husband Phil on their precious first anniversary. Thankfully, she is not alone, and with the help of her friends, she should be able to get through this difficult endeavor.

Opening the letters gets harder and harder. Especially as one of the letters contains just enough evidence to indicate that Phil might not have been the man she thought he was. Who was the man that she was just about to marry? Furthermore, why are his parents being so hateful towards her? Then, as if she doesn’t have enough to concern herself with, Colbie is forced to examine each of her friendships, with no guarantee that she will like what she finds. As the story unfolds, it flips between past and present, thus building a very intriguing story.

Kiersten Modglin is a prolific author who has recently landed on my radar. Now I have a challenge to read every single book this incredibly talented author has written. I love that I learned about her writing while reading several of her psychological thriller novels. This book is a very well-written domestic suspense, which I found to be quite a pleasant turn. For a page-turning book that is sure to capture the reader’s attention, one with a few twists and a surprising ending, If You’re Reading This comes strongly recommended.  

Many thanks to Kiersten Modglin for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
