She has my husband. She has my child. She has my life.
I never thought I would end up here. Alone, in a cold one-bedroom apartment, only seeing my precious daughter once a week.
Another woman is living the life that was once mine. I wish I was still married to my ex-husband, the love of my life. I dream of tucking my five-year-old child into her ballerina bed sheets every night. I miss living in a beautiful house, the perfect family home, with a winding staircase and a sprawling garden.
I’d do anything to be with my family again. To start over and prove to them that I’ve changed, that I won’t lose control like before.
But when I get my second chance, the vicious messages come. The noises at night. The feeling of being watched. It’s happening all over again. I know I’m not going mad, but no one will believe me. I don’t know if I even believe myself.
All I wanted was my life back. But now my life is under threat – and my darling little girl is in danger…
I felt like I was watching some thriller Netflix movie on the TV that intrigued me and that’s how I am feeling about this book!
The story tells about Gideon who is dating a woman named Charlotte. However, despite him dating Charlotte, he still has feelings towards his ex-wife, Sarah with whom he has a daughter, Emily. Charlotte tries to be a part of the family. Sarah on the other keeps hearing voices although no one, not even her ex-husband believes her. She realizes that her daughter might be in danger and believe that maybe, someone was playing with her, even though no one is believing her.
The first part of the book was a slow burn but soon, towards the middle of the book, it started getting its momentum. The story is told from Gideon, Sarah and Charlotte’s points of views and each of the character, particularly Sarah’s character is an unreliable character that makes the reader wonder which of the characters is actually trust worthy. The book started getting fast paced by the middle of the book, I wouldn’t say there were twists and turns but the ending…that actually blew my mind away. I did not expect an ending like that.
If you like a family drama with a love triangle, then this book might be one for you–worth four stars!
