Sitting alone in an exclusive restaurant I stick out like a bruise on the tender white throat of a lily. And I cannot believe it when, on my way out, I bump into my colleagues having a great time without me. At the center of it all is Celeste Cooper with her shimmering auburn hair and her billion-watt smile. She’s everything that I am not: fearless, pretty, popular.
When she drops her keys, I can’t stop myself. I scoop them up on impulse and hide them in my purse...
And now Celeste is missing.
If only I’d called out to her, returned her keys, as I should have.
Wracked with guilt, I join the search, determined to make up for my mistake. But I feel I’m being watched. What if there’s more to Celeste’s disappearance than I know? Could someone from my past still be out there? And if I confront the terrifying truth to save Celeste, will we both survive?
Prepare to be gripped by the pulse-pounding new psychological thriller from USA Today bestselling author Carey Baldwin. Fans of The Wife Between Us, The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl will be totally addicted to Her First Mistake.
