Susanne’s Review:

The day Emma decides to confront her husband James and ask for a divorce is the day he doesn’t come home. Little does she know he crashed his car into the garage and his body lay in a heap.

As Emma and her kids, Hunter & Kelsey deal with the aftermath of James’ death, so do their closest friends. Life behind closed doors was not as it seemed. Then again, no one’s life is.  

When the secrets come tumbling out, no one is left unscathed.  

A melodramatic domestic drama that left much to be desired. For me, I simply felt as though way too much was going on in everyone’s lives and it made my eyes roll.  What I thought at the end of this was that my friends and I just don’t have that much going on. 

This was a buddy read/listen with Kaceey.

Kaceey’s Review:

This book starts off with a BANG! Literally! As James fatally crashes his car into the family garage.

Now Emma and her 2 kids are left to pick up the pieces and move on. Though honestly, she’d had her fill of James’ shenanigans in the first place!🙄 Not that she wanted him dead mind you!😉

But with the help of her two closest friends, there’s hope of starting over again.

As time goes by, Emma is uncovering disturbing information about her late husband that has her questioning everything about him and their marriage.

I toggled back and forth between the written and audio versions. The cast of narrators for the audio powerfully give this story a real boost. If you have the option I would definitely go with the audio! 

This was a fun domestic thriller, and while I was left with some unanswered questions, I still enjoyed!  Hope you will too!

A buddy read/audio with Susanne!

Thank you to NetGalley and Gallery Books as well as Simon and Schuster Audio.

    1. I couldn’t agree more Wendy! I often wonder when I don’t enjoy an audio. If I would have been better off reading the book instead.💁🏻‍♀️💞📚
