From the outside, it seems Grace has it all. Only she knows about the cracks in her picture-perfect life… and the huge secret behind them. After all, who can she trust?
Her brother Josh is thousands of miles away, and he and Grace have never been close – he was always their parents’ favourite.
Her best friend Coco walked away from her years ago, their friendship irreparably fractured by the choices they’ve made.
And her husband Marcus seems like a different man lately. Grace can’t shake the feeling that he’s hiding something.
But when her seven-year-old daughter makes a troubling accusation, Grace must choose between protecting her child and protecting her secret… before she loses everything.
My thoughts: there were a lot of twists and turns in this book, sending me in all sorts of directions and leaving me with lots of questions, could I even trust Grace as the narrator? What was going on in her house? Why would her daughter say such things? Slowly, very slowly, the author peeled the layers back, unravelling a lifetime’s worth of secrets, lies and cover ups. Everyone was hiding something from the 7 year old child to Grace’s mum. So many that it was shocking each time another piece of the puzzle was slotted in. Everyone has blood on their hands in some way – all of them misguided and plain wrong. In the end honesty is the only thing that can save Grace and her family.
