Emily and Jake are the perfect couple. Or so everyone says. But Emily just read a letter that has shattered her perfect world. Now she only has one thing on her mind… which one of her friends is sleeping with her husband?
Emily watches Jake as he makes small talk with their children, still the perfect man she married years ago. But when the phone rings and he answers before quickly putting it down again, she sees the look on her husband’s face – guilt. She knows the signs – after all, she’s been lying to him for years.
Working with Jake at the local doctor’s surgery, Emily starts to listen at closed doors and read things she shouldn’t, hoping to find the truth about her husband. Soon she learns that hers isn’t the only family telling lies to each other. Is there anyone Emily can trust? And who is behind the letter to Jake?
When a second letter, revealing a wife’s hidden pregnancy, is sent to the woman’s husband, it has disastrous consequences. And as more angry letters revealing people’s biggest secrets begin to appear, fingers point at Emily. After all, she’s the one with access to everyone’s private history, and she’s the one with a score to settle. Emily says she didn’t do it. But this isn’t the first time Emily has lied. What happens next will have you questioning everything…
You might have already decided that Emily is guilty, but as each twist is revealed, you’ll begin to doubt everyone in this quiet little town. This is a psychological thriller that will keep you up all night!
One handsome successful doctor + one jealous wife who receives suspicious emails accusing her husband of cheating = another great thriller by Sheryl Browne (a fav Bookouture author).
It all seems like a textbook thriller at first… but if you know Sheryl Browne, you know there’s more to the story! It won’t take long for you to realize that Sheryl is masterful and predicting exactly what readers will think. Then when you least expect it… BAM! You’re wrong.
Each character requires special attention because they all play an important role in how this story unravels. Which characters harbor secrets that will undoubtedly cause the rift between Emily and Jake? Will Jake be able to explain the emails? Does Emily or Jake or … both… keep secrets that will contribute to someone’s demise?
If you like thrillers that will keep you guessing until the end… read this Sheryl Browne book. (Or any for that matter)!
