Summary

Palmer Lewis married a liar. 

But just how deadly are his lies?

Shortly after marrying her soulmate and the birth of their son, the lies begin.

First, it's the phone calls, always held in secret, always deleted from his phone.

Then it's his odd disappearances and the little nagging voice in her head screaming: Something is not right.

When Palmer follows her gut - and her husband - she catches him with an unfamiliar woman in the park and in his biggest lie thus far. Learning from her past, she hatches a plan to protect herself and their child. But when her husband and son disappear one afternoon and don't return, Palmer must retrace her steps and dig deep to discover the truth before it's too late.

Who is the mysterious woman her husband lied about meeting? Who knows what happened to her family? Who's lying?

In this twisted psychological thriller, the better question is, who isn't?

Loved it

Great length, engaging storyline (although I thought Cat’s character was a bit flimsy), fab ending!

One of her absolute best!

This book was fantastic. It was about to take over The Arrangement for my favorite book by Kiersten Modglin until the last 5 minutes. I don't want to give any spoilers but, I'll say that when the husband makes the choice he makes at the very end felt completely out of character. It made the entire character become someone she hadn't perorated him to be in a way that didn't make sense. But, at the same time, anything is possible and people can shock you.

With that said, it's a great listen snd I loved every bit apart from that. Melissa Redmond did a wonderful job narrating!

Worth all the credits!

Loved the book

The beginning was a little confusing... didn't pull me in immediately but the more I got into it, I love the book and highly recommend. Some of the southern accents are absolutely terrible, but that is easy to look past. Could have done away will the race card being pulled in chapter 25.. but other than that, great story line. There were points in which I wanted to reach into the book and personally kick "this other persons" ass!! I don't want to spoil anything so just read the book!

A must read!!

a five-star must read and listen! This was hands down one of my favorite audio books. The narrator was wonderful and did so good with this story. The story itself is so well-written. I was absolutely blown away and was not expecting the twist. It flowed really well and I really enjoyed it.

Four star ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The main character Palmer is kinda annoying. Even her name is annoying.
Come on now seriously. Your going to tolerate that BS and be a doormat.. WELL I guess that's what the story is so, let's continue....
The second half of this story is BETTER.
The mystery and suspense kick in and Palmer gets a backbone. With a Surprise ending!
Great Narrator.... 👍
Excellent Author.... 👍

At least it’s short

I think this must have been one of those “let me just get something out there really quick until my next big best seller is ready.”
No spoilers, but the breastfeeding scene was so weird, and you really do ask yourself, who is the real psycho(s) here. So it DOES keep you guessing, and I would categorize it as a true psychological thriller, so those are pluses. However, it is just a ridiculous story with flat narration.

Predictable

If you read/listen to a lot of these types of thrillers, this is one is very predictable, and rather boring. The narrator does a good job, but the story is weak, and the main character is annoyingly clueless.
