Natalie and Jake were high school sweethearts. When she married Jake, she thought she was getting a great husband, and an even better father to their daughter Elsie. But times can get rough, so they take on a lodger in the house they live in on the farm. Natalie begins to grow suspicious of the lodger, Kara, after coming home one evening and finding them sitting closely together on the couch. Natalie becomes more suspicious that something is going on and she vows to find out. But doing so could possibly tear her family apart.
Wow! This is my second book from Jenkins, and I love her books. I’m pretty sure I have whiplash after reading this book with all the twists that I didn’t see coming! I thought this was a pretty straight forward book, that I had it all figured out. NOPE! Guess again! I really enjoy books that do this to me. It’s not fun if I am able to figure everything out. The story is told from multiple points of view, third person for Jake and Natalie, and first person for the person with whom Jake is having an affair. None of the characters seem reliable, not even Natalie, and that’s just because someone is messing with her! Jenkins has a way of writing that you can’t put the book down, and you simply must devour the book. That makes this a quick read. And when it’s over, you’ll be searching for your next Jenkins book. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves a good thriller, a thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
