How well do you ever really know the family next door?

Bucolic Newport Cove, where spontaneous block parties occur on balmy nights and all of the streets are named for flowers, is proud of its distinction of being named one the top twenty safest neighborhoods in the US. It’s also one of the most secret-filled.

Kellie Scott has just returned to work after a decade of being a stay-at-home mom. She’s adjusting to high heels, scrambling to cook dinner for her family after a day at the office—and soaking in the dangerous attention of a very handsome, very married male colleague. Kellie’s neighbor Susan Barrett begins every day with fresh resolutions: she won’t eat any carbs, she’ll go to bed at a reasonable hour, and she’ll stop stalking her ex-husband and his new girlfriend. Gigi Kennedy seems to have it all together—except her teenage daughter has turned into a hostile stranger and her husband is running for Congress, which means her old skeletons are in danger of being brought into the light.

Then a new family moves to this quiet, tree-lined cul-de-sac. Tessa Campbell seems friendly enough to the other mothers, if a bit reserved. Then the neighbors notice that no one is ever invited to Tessa’s house. And soon, it becomes clear that Tessa is hiding the biggest secret of all.

Greer Hendricks
Una novela de suspenso que explora las complejidades del matrimonio y las peligrosas verdades que ignoramos en nombre del amor.

Cuando leas este libro, tendrás muchas suposiciones. Supondrás que estás leyendo la historia de una esposa celosa y su obsesión con la mujer tomó su lugar. Supondrás que estás leyendo la historia de una mujer a punto de iniciar un nuevo matrimonio con el hombre que ama. Supondrás que la primera esposa era un desastre y que el esposo hizo bien librándose de ella. Supondrás que sabes los motivos, la historia, la anatomía de las relaciones.

No supongas nada.

Prepárate para la lectura de tu vida.

Greer Hendriks y Sarah Pekkanen exploran las complejidades del matrimonio, las relaciones entre mujeres, y las peligrosas verdades que ignoramos en nombre del amor.

Vanessa, de tiene treinta y siete años se ha divorciado recientemente de su marido adinerado y se encuentra postrada en cama en el apartamento de su tía en Nueva York, sintiéndose como si estuviera anclada a ese lugar. No tiene hijos, no tiene dinero ni tampoco amigos verdaderos. Richard, su exesposo carismático y apasionado era su vida entera. Cuando se da cuenta que ahora él está comprometido con la mujer con quien tuvo una aventura su mundo se hace trizas. Se imagina a Richard susurrando las mismas cosas que solía decirle a ella: voy a hacerte tan feliz. Tú eres mi mundo. Solo puede pensar que su reemplazo ahora tiene la familia que ella quiere tan desesperadamente.

A medida que crece su obsesión, Vanessa comienza a rastrear a la mujer joven y hermosa que intervino en su matrimonio. Acechándola. Esperando el momento oportuno para hacer lo que sea necesario para impedir la boda. Faltan solo unas semanas para la boda, y todo está listo. Nellie parece ser como el resto de mujeres jóvenes que se mudan a Manhattan para comenzar su vida adulta. Comparte ropa con su compañera de habitación y lucha para reducir los gastos en su tarjeta de crédito y su cintura. Pero no es tan despreocupada como intenta aparentar.

En su mente, ella lo llama «el incidente», un secreto muy bien guardado que la obligó a huir de Florida y que le impide caminar a su apartamento sola por la noche. Es la razón por la cual tiene un bate de béisbol junto a su cama, y tres cerraduras dobles en la puerta de su casa. Cuando conoce a Richard, este le dice que es soltero y le promete mantenerla a salvo. Pero entonces comienzan las misteriosas llamadas telefónicas. Alguien voltea la fotografía suya que está sobre la mesita de noche de Richard. Y el pañuelo de su papá, el que ella planeaba usar para atar su bouquet, desaparece. Cuando Nellie se da cuenta que talvez la ex de Richard no quiere dejarlo ir, la persigue el temor de que alguien la está vigilando. Alguien que quiere hacerle daño. Pero ¿quién?

Una historia que gira alrededor de los complejos problemas psicológicos que yace en el corazón de un peligroso enredo romántico. Un thriller psicológico con giros trepidantes que cautivará a los lectores desde la primera escena hasta el sorprendente final.
