Molly and Liza have always been best friends. Just as life goes, they have grown apart and scheduled a FaceTime call for one evening when Molly’s husband is away for work and her kids have gone to bed. When Molly goes to check on one of her children, Liza sees a masked man in the living room. Liza drives all night to check on Molly and is shocked that Molly’s response is aloof, saying that everything is fine. After this event, things spiral out of control in both Molly and Liza’s personal lives.
In my opinion, this was labeled incorrectly as a thriller. I did like the book and always enjoy Jessica Strawser’s books. I think it should be labeled as domestic fiction or women’s fiction. It explores issues with friendships, marriage, and relationships. The very first scene is captivating and was suspenseful but after that scene, the book explores relationships between the characters.
If you go into the book with that in mind, then you will enjoy it much more!
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
