a loving family. Up until the day Sebastian is taken.
A year later, Marin is a shadow of herself. The FBI search has gone cold. The publicity has faded. She and her husband rarely speak. The only thing keeping her going is the unlikely chance that one day Sebastian reappears. She hires a P.I. to pick up where the police left off, but instead of finding him, she discovers that Derek is having an affair with a younger woman.
Kenzie Li is an artist and grad student—Instagram famous—and up to her eyeballs in debt. She knows Derek is married. She also knows he's rich, and dating him comes with perks: help with bills, trips away, expensive gifts. He isn't her first rich boyfriend, but she finds herself hoping he'll be the last. She's falling for him—and that was never part of the plan.
Discovery of the affair sparks Marin back to life. She's lost her son; she's not about to lose her husband, too. Kenzie is an enemy with a face, which means this is a problem Marin can fix. But as she sets a plan in motion, another revelation surfaces. Derek's lover might know what happened to their son. And so might Derek.
From the author of Jar of Hearts, a mother driven to the edge by the disappearance of her son learns her husband is having an affair with the woman who might have kidnapped him.
I am a fan of this author. I can still remember, Creep. After that book, I was hooked and could not get my hands of anything Ms. Hillier wrote. This is the first time that I was not fully engaged in a book by this author.
I did not really understand why Marin was bent out of shape about her husband, Derek sleeping around on her. He did not show any reason as to why he loved Marin or was good for her. When Marin did find out about Derek's mistress, it seemed tame on the actions that she took. In fact, the mistress was a bit more bold with breaking into their home.
While, I was not as thrilled with this book, I am still a fan. I look forward to the next book from this author.
