About this ebook

The hotel maid opens the door to the penthouse suite. She smiles at the sweet little teddy bear sitting in the middle of the vast, luxurious bed. Her eyes drift to the nearly empty heart-shaped box of chocolates and then she spots something that sends a shiver down her spine – a blood covered note with the words: ‘My beautiful darling, I’m sorry, please forgive me.’

They’ll say it was a tragic suicide. His wife will break down into uncontrollable sobs when she hears the news of how her darling husband of nearly twenty years died. She’ll refuse to believe it.

It’ll take time for them to find the arsenic and the 21 mg of chloroform in his system. 

They’ll start to build a picture of a dangerous psychopathic woman, but I’ll make it very hard for them to find me. 

They don’t know the truth about him, about the others. They don’t know what I’ve been through.

They may think they know what I’m capable of.

But I’m only just getting started. 

An unbelievably addictive page-turner that will have you gasping out loud, tearing through the pages until you reach the final dramatic twist. Fans of The Girl on the TrainGone Girl and Behind Closed Doors will be totally hooked.

Probably a good story but not my cup of tea. I prefer not knowing who the murderer is until the denouement at the end. Here you not only know who it is but also how it is done. I gave up a quarter of the way through. Some people may enjoy it, but not me as there is no mystery.

really enjoyed this book, but the references to slimming world are just inaccurate. there is no point counting or weighing or anything. it is a healthy eating plan with loads of lovely things to eat and never leaves you hungry or miserable.

Gripping storyline, the only negative I found was that Dan reminisces about Rachel too much and for too long, I found myself skipping past/through his memories of her as they just dragged on.
