What is the book about?: Paul Strom and his wife, Mia, are headed out of town for a romantic weekend, to spend some quality time together at their vacation house. It will be the best day ever, according to Paul. But Mia’s not so sure. What secrets are they hiding from each other?
My Review: This was a great nail-biter of a book. I love books with an unreliable narrator, and this was a good one. You got the feeling that Paul was up to no good, but just like Mia, you couldn’t put your finger on it at first … the author did a good job of building suspense and letting hints slip every once in a while that Paul was not the perfect husband he seemed to be. Then when you found out the depths of his treachery, that made it so much worse, because you thought for a while he was okay.
