I really wanted to love this one, but I was just left disappointed.

For me, this book was too slow, predictable and had an ending that fell flat.

Even with the character development, my sympathy kept changing throughout the book, and I didn’t know who I liked or hated, and/or who I was rooting for.

I did love that there were some twists, that definitely increase my liking for the story, but still, I found some of those twists were kind of random and plugging into the story.

There are many 5- and 4-star reviews for this book, so you might enjoy it, but unfortunately, this just wasn’t for me.


But it’s the lies that keep you safe.

Single mother Lee has the daily routine down to a science: shower in six minutes. Cut food into perfect squares. Never leave her on-the-spectrum son Mason in someone else’s care. She’ll do anything—anything—to keep his carefully constructed world from falling apart. Do anything to keep him safe.

But when her best friend Grace convinces her she needs a small break from motherhood to recharge her batteries, Lee gives in to a weekend trip. Surely a long weekend away from home won’t hurt?

Noah, Mason’s handsome, bright, charismatic tutor—the first man in ages Lee’s even noticed—is more than happy to stay with him.

Forty-eight hours later, someone is dead.

But not all is as it seems. Noah may be more than who he claims to be. Grace has a secret—one that will destroy Lee. Lee has secrets of her own that she will do anything to keep hidden.

As the dominoes begin to fall and the past comes to light, perhaps it's no mystery someone is gone after all…
