Description

Trusting his family was her first mistake.

All Ria ever wanted was a family. Growing up alone in foster care, she imagined just how it would be. So when she fell in love with Grayson and had their daughter Shelley, she was determined to make his family love her too. She knew she’d never fit in with her glamorous sisters-in-law, or at the exclusive picture-perfect Chicago parties her mother-in-law threw, but with Grayson’s arm around her waist she tried her best to be a Parker.

Everything changed when Grayson disappeared.

Until one morning, Grayson leaves the house for work and never comes home. Left to raise Shelley alone, Ria is forced to turn to her husband’s family, to let her intimidating mother-in-law into her life, allow her to babysit Shelley, and accept her financial support. She tries to ignore the feeling that her sisters-in-law never thought she was good enough. They say they have no idea what happened to Grayson, and she tries very hard to believe them.

But Ria is about to learn that every Parker wife has secrets.

And protecting her daughter might come at a terrible price…

 
 
My thoughts 
Would I recommend it? Yes , in fact I did a buddy read of it with a friend and she loved it as well.
Would I recommended it? Yes
This is my first time reading anything by this author but it won't be my last because I have one other of her books to read and that's the The Scandal and after reading this one I can't wait to read that one .Can't believe that it took me this long to read this and I've had it since last year. In fact I couldn't sleep so I decided to read and wow after starting this I couldn't or wouldn't put it down, I kept telling myself that I after a few more pages I would stop. While as you can see I didn't stop. The story has all the stuff I love in this type of thriller , a strong woman that will do anything to protect her daughter, dark secrets that could make or break a family, a psychopath ( ok maybe a bit  harsh, but I'm calling it as I see it), twist and turns , and not known who you can trust besides yourself. With that said I want to thank Netgalley for letting me read and review .
