This thriller was the perfect recipe to distract me from the world’s problems. It is well written, fast paced, and addictive. I fell in love with Marin Machado, the main character. She is a salon owner with an A-List clientele, a beautiful home, and a happy marriage until, “…a lollipop, a Santa suit, and 4 minutes,” upended her entire life. Her son Sebastian is stolen and Marin struggles to figure out how to go on living without him. Then Marin discovers that her successful husband Derek is cheating with a much younger woman, Kenzie. Kenzie is a pink haired barista, who lives her life for instagram likes. She is the polar opposite of the successful and beautiful Marin. Discovering her husband’s infidelity undoes Marin. She decides not to allow anyone else to take anything more from her.
Everyone in Marin’s life seems to be holding onto secrets, huge, life altering, secrets. Secrets that can get you arrested. Marin is surrounded by people that go to great lengths to keep their secrets and lies safe. In the end though, Marin is sick of it, she won’t be wronged again. After 16 months of living without her son, she desperately wants to save her marriage. In the end, it boils down to the length a woman will go to to protect what’s hers.
Like Jar of Hearts, this was a 5 star read for me! I loved Marin, and the end of this book was perfect. Many twists and turns later I ended up an emotional wreck and crying but I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
