As soon as Emma joins a bereavement group, she meets Sam. Sam is the brother of a woman named Faith, who is running the group. Emma and Sam fall in love and not only do they marry, but she soon becomes pregnant with his child. They couldn’t be any happier. Meanwhile, as an architect, Sam talks Emma into building her dream home. He is a very busy man, because not only is he building homes, married to Emma, but his work takes him away from home almost every single weekend.
One day while flipping through a magazine, Emma finds a photo of a painting that belongs to her, and that she thought was in storage, and she is beyond shocked. So she tracked down the now owner of the painting, and when she talks to the woman, the woman says she is Sam’s wife. How could this be, because isn’t Emma his wife? Well Emma wants answers and answers is what Emma plans on getting.
As I was reading as a story where the husband is a bigamist, my interest was definitely piqued. Sam is definitely hiding something from Emma but we soon learn that Emma has her own secrets. To say that I was shocked is an understatement. I am rating this book four stars because I am noticing more and more books are having an open ending which either leaves you speculating, or hoping for a second book. Other than that, this was a solid read by Rona Halsall and I am looking forward her next book.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
