My Review

This was a riveting book about love and betrayal.  It has an interesting ploy which has been seen before.

What you need to think is just how far would you go to protect your spouse even if they did have an affair.

That’s exactly what David  and Tara must go through at this point in their marriage.  

David is a jealous man who seems to love his wife however his view is slightly skewed because I don’t think whenever grasped what or who his wife was.

Tara is far from innocent but her character seems like a rich snob whose sole claim to fame is one painting.  She has put on airs and has put herself far above everyone else now that she is hard to like.

This book definitely is a must read if you want to see dysfunction in life and betrayal.  

A wonderful and shocking tale of love gone wrong.  Can’t wait to see what is next from this author.
