About this ebook

From the USA Today bestselling author of Little Deadly Secrets comes a gripping story about the frailty of family and a battle of wills between a wife and a sister-in-law, bent on revenge.

She stole my husband. So I’d steal her life.

The Wife

Lane won Candace’s heart over chocolate martinis and karaoke. But weeks into their whirlwind marriage, Candace realized Lane came with burdensome baggage in the form of his possessive live-in sister and her eerily watchful six-year-old son. Lane had a secret that seemed to hold him hostage, and Candace would do anything to uncover it.

The Sister-in-Law

Harper was the kind of woman who cooked homemade meals and dusted under the furniture. It was the least she could do for her brother after her husband’s mysterious death, and Lane took her and her kids in. Then Candace showed up like a tornado passing through, threatening and destructive. But Harper had other plans for her new “sister,” plans Lane could never find out about.

The Husband

All Lane had ever wanted was a white-picket-fence life. The wife. The two-point-five kids. The happy little family. Everything seemed to be falling into place with Candace … until Harper’s jealous streak got in the way, again. But choosing between his sister and wife would be costly … and knowing Harper, the price would be blood.

You will not want to put this one down. Candace marries Lane and his sister, Harper lost her husband and moved in with them with her children. Not all is what it seems. Candace has many secrets that come to haunt her. The two sister in laws do not see eye to eye. A surprise ending that I did not see coming.

What can I say about an amazing story of lies, deceit, and the impact those choices make on those who choose to 'do the deed'? At first, I felt sorry for Harper-- until she asked her brother Lane to cover-up her husband Ben's suicide -- for financial reasons. That made me leery of her being a good person and the same for Lane since he, being a nurse, did the cover-up. Then Candace appears with Lane as his wife after a very short romance. She and Harper do not get along is a gross understatement and they both put Lane in the middle after he allows Harper and her two children to move in with him and Candance. As secrets are revealed in the story, it makes a person wonder who will survive this circus of a disaster waiting to blow....and does it ever!!!! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book
