I’ll be honest here….the majority of the reason for reading this book is that it was on offer in the Kindle store. Other than that the cover intrigued me and sometimes that’s enough of a reasons to read something different, I’m a simple creature!

She can give you everything you want… But can you trust her?

Kat and her husband Nick have tried everything to become parents. All they want is a child to love but they are beginning to lose hope. Then a chance encounter with Kat’s childhood friend Lisa gives them one last chance. 

Kat and Lisa were once as close as sisters. The secrets they share mean their trust is for life… Or is it?

Just when the couple’s dream seems within reach, Kat begins to suspect she’s being watched and Nick is telling her lies.  

Are the cracks appearing in Kat’s perfect picture of the future all in her head, or should she be scared for the lives of herself and her family?

How far would you go, to protect everything you love?

Ok so I know this book has had a decent amount of love (from what I’ve seen) but honestly I found it a little tricky to get into. I thought the characters were investable and the plot was ok but that’s where my issue lies. I found it ok. It was an easy, quick read and something that I think most people would find ok and would be neither blown away by nor particularly disappointed with.

Anyway, ultimately, we are all the same, aren’t we? Skin and bones. Truth and lies. We all have our stories to tell. Regret we bury. Hope we try to tether lest we begin to think we can be something we’re not.
