The Blurb

Tara Logan adores her perfect little family: husband, Noah, and two children, teenager Rosie and eleven-year-old Spencer.

But her happiness is shattered when she wakes in her neighbour, Lee Jacobs’ bed, with no memory of how she got there or what happened between them. And worse – he has been stabbed to death.

Convinced she didn’t kill Lee, Tara flees home and stays silent, holding her breath as the investigation grips the neighbourhood. But as her daughter spirals out of control, and her husband becomes increasingly distant, Tara starts to wonder if someone in her own life knows what really happened that night. And when the police turn their questions towards her, Tara realises she has to find out.

But what will it take to uncover the real story, and can she survive the truth?

My Thoughts

So you wake up in your neighbours bed with no memory of how you got there and he cant tell you as he is stone cold dead after being stabbed in the bed. What would you do? Well, if you are Tara Logan, you get dressed sneek back home and hope for the best. That is until her daughter is made a suspect.

From here the story takes us on a thrilling page turning, head mashing journey until the quite fantastic ending. I changed my mind time and time again as to who the guilty party was and you wont be let down when you discover the Killer.It builds tension perfectly and you never know who to trust. Rosie was a great character, one who you could never trust whatever came out of her mouth.

My only negative point was the relationship between Tara and Holden. I didnt feel it had a place in the book and was a bit distracting. But then I suppose thats the point.
