Five years rebuilding your life. Five words will destroy it again.

My Review: 4/5
This book had me hooked from the very beginning. Mia is at the funeral with her 2-year old, burying her husband. Immediately we learn there is something behind his death when she states what people said about him aren’t true. And from there, the mystery unravels.
This book is told from different perspectives, in the past and present, which really worked. We meet Zach and Josie, who are alleged to have had an affair. When Zach’s body turns up in Josie’s apartment, it is assumed he killed himself out of guilt. One day, Mia is faced with a huge shock ‘you’re husband didn’t kill himself’, one of her patients tells her. From that moment on, it is a whirlwind of suspense!
Throughout tho whole book I’m left wondering what happened. I must admit, I never saw this one coming. I thought I had everything figured out, but I was wrong!
Check out this book if you want a suspenseful book that leaves you with your mouth gaping open in disbelief!!
