Alice and Beth meet because they each have a daughter in the same school. They become friends, share tidbits about their lives and enjoy the camaraderie before their lives take a strange turn. Alice is a hard-working mother who has already lived through the pain of her first husband’s death. She is now married to Nathan and he is the perfect man. Things begin to change as they two begin to work on a project in Japan. They each have secrets but after shocking twists, the reader is drawn into a web of deceit and suspicion. I guarantee that you’ll never look at people the same way again. I couldn’t put the book down until I got to the very end. A moving story with mystery, deceit and plenty of strange moments that were very much like real life. Four stars for this super-charged thriller of a story.
