You can never truly know what goes on behind closed doors…My darling son, Sam, is marrying his childhood sweetheart and I couldn’t be prouder of the man he’s grown into. Walking out on his abusive father all those years ago was the best thing I ever did. And today he stands, tall and handsome, saying ‘I do’ to my dream daughter-in-law. If I hadn’t pushed them together all those years ago, he might never have found a girl as perfect as Lauren. It’s true what they say, mother always knows best.But weeks later, Lauren is dead and police cars fill the driveway of their idyllic countryside home. As they question Sam, I sense he’s hiding something. Why won’t he look me in the eye? And who does he rush off to meet as soon as the police are gone?Desperate, I do what every good mother would do: I let myself into Sam and Lauren’s bedroom. What I see, I will never be able to forget. My son’s beautiful new wife was hiding a dangerous secret. Can I clear my son’s name? And could my life be in danger now too?
This is another great book by a wonderful author. I can’t remember how many times I changed my mind and picked a different suspect, but boy oh boy, I did not see this coming.
I have to say I had a totally different plot in mind. 😊 Would it have worked? I don’t know, but it certainly means I missed the ball completely and I did not work it out for the umpteenth time. 😉
How well do you really know the people you have known for years and spent hours, days with? It seems like that depends on how good they are at keeping the truth hidden. Are you too naïve or too trusting, because you did not see right through their stories? Maybe, maybe not. Some people are true masters in keeping secrets and only revealing what they want the world to know, which is often very different from the real thing.
Even though someone did not lose any sleep over their actions before, they suddenly seem to take a U-turn. Not everybody is happy with that decision and that’s when everything comes tumbling down…
I loved the story which kept me guessing the whole time and kept me up till 2 am. 5 stars
