About The Book

A gripping psychological thriller of secrets and obsession that will keep readers flipping pages to the stunning conclusion from the author whose suspenseful work has been described as “meticulous and detail-laden, with plenty of red herrings” (Kirkus Reviews).

One year after her husband Zach’s death, Lizzie Carter goes to lay flowers on the site of his fatal accident. Since the tragedy, she just hasn’t been the same, wracked with grief and guilt and regret and...relief. Even though her friends tell her she’s grieved enough for her “prince charming,” her memories of a darker side of Zach that no one else knew are burned into her brain and won’t let her forget him. But as she lays her flowers down at the roadside, she sees a bouquet of lilies at the foot of the tree. Addressed to her husband. She isn’t the first to pay her respects...but who is Xenia?

As Lizzie learns more about her husband’s past, she begins to realize that maybe she didn’t know Zach at all. But she’s still tormented by her guilt and the memories that just won’t fade...because Zach doesn’t seem to be as gone as everyone thinks. And she just can’t shake the feeling that he’s still out there, watching her, waiting to claim her as his own once again.

After all, just because we love someone doesn’t mean we can trust them...
