Having checked 'find trophy wife' off his list, life was moving along swimmingly. Until that perfect woman let it slip--she has a past. One she kept hidden, almost perfectly.
Sure, she lied--she fudged the numbers. Most women do.
Now, Tom has buyers' remorse and according to cult rules only two options: get rid of her--or single-handedly erase her past.
She's a liar. But she does keep house well. And she makes a mean lasagna.
Razor-sharp and utterly gripping, this electrifying story explores the lengths one will go in the pursuit of perfection, little white lies that can turn lethal, and the danger lurking behind the smiles of those we trust most.

Release Date: May 3, 2018
Genre: Domestic Thriller
Actual Rating: 5 stars
And here we have another excellent thriller from Britney King. Last year I snagged a copy of The Social Affair as a few blogging friends had recommended it and since then I have been utterly HOOKED. The Social Affair takes place in the same town that this one does, and while it each book can stand completely on their own, I do recommend reading the Social Affair first as things that happened in THAT book are talked about in THIS one. Again, it's not necessary in order to enjoy this one fully, but I think readers will like the way the two come together. Anyway, this book (and it's predecessor) is original, taught with tension, and compulsively readable. It gives readers an in depth look at a cult-like society where beauty and perfection are valued at all costs, and following the rules will save your life. Britney King gives her readers the best twists and turns and an ending that you won't see coming! I was shocked with how everything unfolded in the end and truly excited with how things were left. I hope she continues books that take place in this community, because I simply cannot resist them!
If you are looking for a smart, intriguing, and twisted domestic thriller then I highly recommend this one. Britney King is soon to be up there with the bigger name authors like Gillian Flynn, Ruth Ware, and Paula Hawkins!
