Okkkk this was a cool story!

Nilufer summarised this book so well, I’m not even going to try:

“Two stranger women on a train share their most intimate secrets: one of them is cheated by her husband as the other one is having an affair with a married man. They share vodka, a few laughs, their resentments, regrets and they say their goodbyes. As of them thinks their paths will never be crossed, the other one already starts planning their next encounter.”

What a premise! This book got me from the very first chapter! The police rings at the door saying your nanny is missing…and the police suspects you…

This book is told in different POVs, which kept me entertained, where I couldn’t put down the book! If you like books about blackmail, revenge, cheating, lying; this one is for you!

Lisa delivers a clever, and twisty psychological thriller! I highly recommend this book!

Thank you to HARLEQUIN – Trade Publishing for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


From master of suspense Lisa Unger comes a riveting thriller about a chance encounter that unravels a stunning web of lies and deceit.

Everyone has a secret… Now she knows yours.

Selena Murphy is commuting home from her job in the city when the train stalls out on the tracks. She strikes up a conversation with a beautiful stranger in the next seat, and their connection is fast and easy. The woman introduces herself as Martha and confesses that she’s been stuck in an affair with her boss. Selena, in turn, confesses that she suspects her husband is sleeping with the nanny. When the train arrives at Selena’s station, the two women part ways, presumably never to meet again.

But days later, Selena’s nanny disappears.

Soon Selena finds her once-perfect life upended. As she is pulled into the mystery of the missing nanny, and as the fractures in her marriage grow deeper, Selena begins to wonder, who was Martha really? But she is hardly prepared for what she’ll discover.
