Read 2 times. Last read June 18, 2017 to June 21, 2017.

This is a dark psychological thriller that involves two women. Louisa and Sophie.

The book starts with a gripping lead.
An accident that involves Sophie, her children and her husband.

The accident only left Sophie, she had serious injuries.

She lost her husband Sam and children.

I am not giving anything away by telling you this as this is nothing to what you discover as you read more and more.
Sam had a lover Louise. He was going to leave his wife Sophie for Louise.

Sophie wants to take away and strip bare everything Louisa ever had from Sam.
Her inheritance, her reputation, and everything she stand for, even her life.

Louisa is heartbroken, Sophie is pregnant.

Louisa, the wife and Sophie the pregnant mistress.

This is a story darker than dark. You think it would be straight forward, jealousy, revenge, but no.
WHAM.

The ending will get you between the eyes, leave you gasping.
Then you stop, then you realise just how addictive this book was.
Superb.

My thanks to Headline in providing me with my copy.
