Something happened in Harriet’s life when she was 16 years of age that she has kept secret for everyone, including her husband Oliver. With her marriage having already gone through difficult days, one day while at the park with her three children, including her twin girls, one of them goes missing. Not only is Oliver out of town, he is also out of touch and she can’t even tell him how desperate she is that their daughter is missing. Not only is she dealing with this terror, but she gets a note that alludes to her past and lets her know that nothing for her is ever going to go smooth again.
Someone knows about Harriet’s past. Revenge seems to be the name of the game and she will do anything to stop what is going on. More than that, she starts to have reason to not trust Oliver and is determined to discover who he could be possibly having yet another affair with. No one in their circle of friends escapes her thoughts as to whom could be sleeping with her husband. Torn between trying to sort out what’s going on with Oliver, as well as that note that alludes to her past, Harriet is overwhelmed.
Although this book was mostly in the present, there were flashbacks to Harriet’s teenage years to give a clue as to what secret she has been hiding from that past. The drama continued to intensify as Harriet’s past begins to collide with her present, which could possibly ruin her future. I listened to this tense domestic thriller as it was wonderfully narrated by Eilidh Beaton. Whether voicing what Harriet was experiencing, or the other characters in the book, the narration lent to making this intriguing story even better than it already was.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
