“I paused, my finger poised over the email. One swipe and I could see it. I must have waited a second too long, because the iPad dimmed, and I replaced it on the table, the email and my mad moment almost forgotten.”
This book seemed like it was going to be a real mystery tale, but what was it really about?
The story gradually builds up to a really intense situation which seems to have no escape route. Rachel goes about things in such an about turn manner when she suspects her boyfriend, and father of her child, of doing something really out of range following an email that she half catches a glimpse of, in the middle of the night. This is despite her own secret which is eating away at her, following an incident at the hospital where she worked.
Rachel gradually burrows her way into the secrets that Jack has buried deep and drives such a deep wedge between them. How can they ever bring up their unborn child as a loving couple after this? Such a sad, lonely tale !
I received an e-ARC of this novel through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. NetGalley does not allow for paid reviews.
4/5 Stars (What this means…five-stars-applied-carefully)
It all started with the email. It came through to her boyfriend’s iPad in the middle of the night. Rachel didn’t even mean to look. She loves Jack, and she’s pregnant with their child. She trusts him. But now she’s seen it, she can’t undo that moment, or the chain of events it has set in motion. Why has Jack been lying about his past? Just what exactly is he hiding? And doesn’t Rachel have a right to know the truth at any cost?
