Till death us do part.

When young lawyer Lily marries Ed, she’s determined to make a fresh start. To leave the secrets of her past behind. But then she takes on her first murder case and meets Joe. A convicted murderer whom Lily is strangely drawn to. Whom she will soon be willing to risk anything for.
But Lily is not the only one with secrets. Her next-door neighbor Carla may only be nine, but she has already learned that secrets are powerful things. That they can get her whatever she wants.
When Lily finds Carla on her doorstep sixteen years later, a chain of events is set in play that can end only one way.

An eye for an eye. A wife for a wife. 


Oh WOW!!! No other words……just WOW!!


When I first saw this book, I had some misgivings if I would like it……oh wow, I was so wrong. I completely and thoroughly ENJOYED every page, all 528 of them!! And I finished this book in a weekend; I simply could NOT put it down! I fell down the rabbit hole and didn’t come up for air until it was done!

All the characters are well-developed, very believable, and no character is “all good” or “all bad”. I think this puts a very clever twist on this story as it keeps you guessing until the end. There is a lot of jumping around between characters and flashbacks, so this is not a skimming book. But it is SO well worth every minute!! Remember the part in the first “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” where Mr. Wonka (Gene Wilder) says “I can’t stand the suspense…..I hope it’ll last”? Well, THAT’S what this book is like!!!

    1. I was a bit……well, let’s just say I didn’t want to give away enough for the review to turn into a spoiler. You won’t be sorry; it sucks you in from page one.

    1. It is REALLY GOOD!!! For me to pick it up and literally struggle to put it down at all says a lot. I was completely sucked in.
