Haven't we all wanted to pretend everything's perfectly fine? Jane Campbell avoids confrontation at all costs. Given the choice, she'll always let her husband, Leon--a bestselling thriller author--fight their battles. She'd prefer to focus on the good things in life: precious days with her two young children, a steady and loving marriage, their mischievously playful cat Bonita, and her fulfilling job as a creative writing teacher. In Jane's eyes, life is altogether sweeter than any individual bump in the road. But when Leon suffers a brutal attack in the driveway of their home, in front of their children, Jane has to finally face reality. Who would commit such a hateful offense in broad daylight? Leon has imagined his fair share of crime on the page, and now this unthinkable violence has landed on the Campbell family doorstep. With her husband in a coma, Jane must open her eyes to the problems in her life, as well as the secrets that have been kept from her. Although she might not like what she sees, if she's committed to discovering who hurt her husband--and why--Jane needs to take matters into her own hands.

Once again a winner from Paula Daly;s mind. Paula is one of my must read authors. I've never been disappointed in her twisty stories. After her next book comes out late 2019 she will take a much needed break. Now I wait !
