About the Book
Release Date: May 19, 2020
The bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish returns with a psychological thriller, filled with chilling serpentine twists, about a woman fighting to hold onto the only family she’s ever loved—and how far she’ll go to preserve it.
Named one of the most anticipated thrillers of the year by Goodreads, Bustle, SheReads, and Library Journal
Breezing into the tony seaside paradise of Westport, Connecticut, gorgeous thirtysomething Piper Reynard sets down roots, opening a rehab and wellness space and joining a local yacht club. When she meets Leo Drakos, a handsome, successful lawyer, the wedding ring on his finger is the only thing she doesn’t like about him. Yet as Piper well knows, no marriage is permanent.
Meanwhile, Joanna has been waiting patiently for Leo, the charismatic man she fell in love with all those years ago, to re-emerge from the severe depression that has engulfed him. Though she’s thankful when Leo returns to his charming, energetic self, paying attention again to Evie and Stelli, the children they both love beyond measure, Joanna is shocked to discover that it’s not her loving support that’s sparked his renewed happiness—it’s something else.
Piper. Leo has fallen head over heels for the flaky, New Age-y newcomer, and unrepentant and resolute, he’s more than willing to leave Joanna behind, along with everything they’ve built. Of course, he assures her, she can still see the children.
Joanna is devastated—and determined to find something, anything, to use against this woman who has stolen her life and her true love. As she digs deeper into Piper’s past, Joanna begins to unearth disturbing secrets . . . but when she confides to her therapist that she fears for the lives of her ex-husband and children, her concerns are dismissed as paranoia. Can she find the proof she needs in time to save them?

I’ve been so excited for this book since I saw it. It’s just got such a graphic cover mixed with such an intriguing synopsis and I immediately said: I want to read this. This is the perfect thriller for the upcoming summer months. It’s just the perfect setting for that summer climate.
I’ve been reading a lot of thrillers this year and I’ve got to say that I’m really enjoying the genre. There’s something about getting into the psychological aspect of what motivates and drives people to do some crazy things. One thing I find from reading books like The Wife Stalker is that you don’t always like the main characters, and that’s ok! Did I love each and every one of these characters? No. Did it almost make the whole story seem more realistic and intense? Yes. We get to delve deep into the lives of Joanna and Piper and really see what motivates them to make the decisions they have. And that’s all I’m going to say on that, because it’s a thriller and the less you know the better the read!
All in all this was an exciting thrill (see what I did there?) of a read. The story takes you down many roads and the ending spits you out in a place you never saw coming. It’s like riding the newest roller coaster! I also have to say that this will be the perfect book for you to pick up now and read as the weather starts warming up. I don’t know, there’s just something about it that makes me think of summer (and maybe it’s honestly just that gorgeous coral in the cover).
