How far would you go to protect your happy home?
Sara made one promise to herself when she was growing up in foster care: that if she was lucky enough to have a family, she’d always do whatever it took to protect them. Looking around her home with its cosy kitchen and living room, where her energetic teenage daughters and gorgeous four-year-old son all eat, play and live together, she knows she’d do anything to keep them safe.
So when Sara’s husband Matt loses his job and every shred of his confidence with it, she knows it’s up to her to bring the family back from the brink. Though she doesn’t know where she can possibly find the money they need to keep afloat.
Until her boss at work offers her a deal. He’ll help out. She just has to do him one little favour. But could trusting him save Sara’s family, or will it be a mistake that costs her absolutely everything?
This is also one of those books that should come with a warning. Please, make sure you have plenty of time once you start reading it, because it’s so captivating that you will scarcely be able to put it down!
What would you do to protect your family? The answer to that question is very simple: everything. When you are with your back against the wall, sometimes the only way out is the one you should avoid at all costs, but you take it anyway. You are convinced that it will all work out in the end. In stead, you are leaping out of the frying pan and into the fire…
Who can you trust? Who can you count on? Who will believe you?
Did I like the book? No. I loved it. 🙂
The writing style is great and the author takes you on a journey through a world of lies, deceit and blackmail, all in the name of money. 5 stars.

About the author
Rona lives on the Isle of Man with her husband, two dogs and three guinea pigs. She has been a bookworm since she was a child and now she’s actually creating stories of her own, which still feels like a dream come true.
She is an outdoorsy person and loves stomping up a mountain, walking the coastal paths and exploring the wonderful beaches on the Island while she’s plotting how to kill off her next victim. She also makes sure she deletes her Google history on a regular basis, because… well, you can’t be too careful when you spend your life researching new and ingenious ways for people to die.
She has three children and two step-children who are now grown up and leading varied and interesting lives, which provides plenty of ideas for new stories!
