Author(s): Lucie Whitehouse
A whirlwind romance. A perfect marriage. Hannah Reilly has seized her chance at happiness. Until the day her husband fails to come home ...The more questions Hannah asks, the fewer answers she finds. But are the secrets that Mark has been keeping designed to protect him or protect her? And can you ever really know what happened before you met?
The most dangerous lies are those closest to home
Whitehouse cleverly builds the suspense bit by bit, taking the reader deftly from the couple's initial newlywed bliss to Hannah's growing realization that things may not be what they seem. Astute readers will pick up on clues that things aren't right before the hapless Hannah, but they'll still enjoy this well-drawn, taught thriller all the way to the end Kirkus It soon picks up speed and builds to a tense, unexpected climax. Hannah is a strong and likable heroine, although readers looking for character depth and development may be unsatisfied by the superficial treatment of her marriage and troubled family Publishers Weekly
