A weekend getaway in an isolated country house is just what Caitlin needs to fix her relationship with husband Eli. Her spirits are up as they enter the spacious retreat and cool off in the nearby lake. With Eli's easy-going brother accompanying them - the party was his idea - the barbecue lit and beers cracked open, everything should be set for a perfect evening. But her husband is cold and dismissive, so Caitlin decides to drown her sorrows and heads into the wine cellar. What she finds there will change their lives forever.

I thought I had it sussed about the "partner in crime" but that one caught me completely off guard.
Fantastic book and narration. I'm going to download some more from Clare Mackintosh.
I loved the Q&A at the end of the book also. Clare answered one of MY questions that I would have asked so THANK YOU!
HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.

Brilliantly written and performed. I felt so many emotions whilst listening to this book. Anger and contempt at Amber and Jackson in Part 1. Sadness ànd frustration for Daphne at the beginning of Part 2, turning to happiness and joy towards the end. Hatred and anger for Jackson in all parts. What a fantastic ending, proving that all the money in the world can never buy you happiness. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANCE!
