Official Blurb:

Emily and Jake are the perfect couple. Or so everyone says. But Emily just read a letter that has shattered her perfect world. Now she only has one thing on her mind… which one of her friends is sleeping with her husband?
Emily watches Jake as he makes small talk with their children, still the perfect man she married years ago. But when the phone rings and he answers before quickly putting it down again, she sees the look on her husband’s face – guilt. She knows the signs – after all, she’s been lying to him for years.
Working with Jake at the local doctor’s surgery, Emily starts to listen at closed doors and read things she shouldn’t, hoping to find the truth about her husband. Soon she learns that hers isn’t the only family telling lies to each other. Is there anyone Emily can trust? And who is behind the letter to Jake?
When a second letter, revealing a wife’s hidden pregnancy, is sent to the woman’s husband, it has disastrous consequences. And as more angry letters revealing people’s biggest secrets begin to appear, fingers point at Emily. After all, she’s the one with access to everyone’s private history, and she’s the one with a score to settle. Emily says she didn’t do it. But this isn’t the first time Emily has lied. What happens next will have you questioning everything…
You might have already decided that Emily is guilty, but as each twist is revealed, you’ll begin to doubt everyone in this quiet little town. This is a psychological thriller that will keep you up all night!

My Thoughts:

I was a bit worried about reading another Sheryl Browne book after reading a disappointing one from her earlier on in the year. I don’t remember every book I read, but I did have a small asterisk in my mind against this author that made me stop and think whether I should request this ARC. However, I was pleasantly surprised that this was back to the high standard that I know she is capable of. This was a fantastic Psychological Thriller, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, phew!
The writing was on point; the characters were annoying enough to suspect everyone but likeable too so that you wanted to know what they were up to and were rooting for them. The storyline was unique and different from other PTs that I have been reading lately. I don’t think I’ve spent much imaginary time in a doctor’s surgery.
I did think at one point that Emily’s paranoia wasn’t based on much, but as the story progresses, this worry was unfounded. Everything is explained, and there are so many twists and turns at the end, it really keeps you on the edge of your seat.
I did guess the big reveal of who was behind all the vitriol but everything that came after this was really shocking.
So I have removed my mental asterisk and will look forward to future books by this author again. This really was an enjoyable book that will keep you gripped, guessing and flying through the pages.
