From the acclaimed author of The Trophy Child comes a “superbly sinister” domestic thriller of false friendship and deadly betrayal (Mystery Scene).
 
When her daughter falls ill while on a school trip overseas, Natty rushes to be by her side. And she’s so relieved to have a friend like Eve, who offers to help her husband around the house in her absence. But when Natty returns home she discovers that Eve has taken to family life a little too well—and Sean has fallen in love with her.
 
Confronted with the fact that her marriage wasn’t as rock-solid as she thought, Natty attempts to put on a brave face and move forward. But no matter how hard she tries to pick herself up, her former friend is there to knock her down again.
 
Then Natty receives an anonymous note that reveals Eve to be a serial mistress. She’s done this before—and the consequences were fatal. Now Natty must navigate through a treacherous maze of secrets that jeopardizes her life and the safety of her loved ones.
