Goodreads Synopsis –
Marin had the perfect life. Married to her college sweetheart, she owns a chain of upscale hair salons, and Derek runs his own company. They’re admired in their community and are a loving family. Up until the day Sebastian is taken.
A year later, Marin is a shadow of herself. The FBI search has gone cold. The publicity has faded. She and her husband rarely speak. The only thing keeping her going is the unlikely chance that one day Sebastian reappears. She hires a P.I. to pick up where the police left off, but instead of finding him, she discovers that Derek is having an affair with a younger woman.
Kenzie Li is an artist and grad student—Instagram famous—and up to her eyeballs in debt. She knows Derek is married. She also knows he’s rich, and dating him comes with perks: help with bills, trips away, expensive gifts. He isn’t her first rich boyfriend, but she finds herself hoping he’ll be the last. She’s falling for him—and that was never part of the plan.
Discovery of the affair sparks Marin back to life. She’s lost her son; she’s not about to lose her husband, too. Kenzie is an enemy with a face, which means this is a problem Marin can fix. But as she sets a plan in motion, another revelation surfaces. Derek’s lover might know what happened to their son. And so might Derek.
My Opinion –
A thriller that opens with a heart-breaking crime!
Marin has the seemingly perfect life that she would not trade for the world. Then an unspeakable crime occurs and her world is flipped upside-down. She has been through the ringer and just when she is starting to get her life back in order she is hit with some shocking news. Once she absorbs the truth she finds herself more awake than she has been in quite some time. All she sees is hate and revenge is in order!
My heart went out to Marin and who doesn’t like a good story of revenge! This is a chilling story chock-full of secrets. It was a quick and easy read that had my attention throughout. I may have enjoyed her previous book Jar of Hearts a bit more than this one, but that in no way lessened my overall enjoyment of this book.
I look forward to Jennifer Hillier’s future books and will forever be a fan!
