Looking for a fun, fast summer beach read?
This one features a beach front setting, an obsessive relationship, and two POV’s. One in first person and one in third person, but they don’t exactly match up, so we must decide who is being truthful and who is living in their own little reality. Hmm… I think I know!
Caroline and Aiden have a roller coaster of a relationship and most would agree that it did not start off on the right track . Her being a seemingly happily married woman and Aiden being a complete stranger who shows up at a time when Caroline is feeling weakness. Especially since she has just caught her hubby with a mysterious Russian woman. Maybe revenge is what she is feeling?
I do love an unreliable narrator and there were some twists that I saw and a few that definitely surprised me.
I loved how this ended, I was completely absorbed as the action and pace revved up during last few chapters. There was no putting it down until the end. Maybe a perfect storm?
There is a stranger outside Caroline’s house.
Her spectacular new beach house, built for hosting expensive parties and vacationing with the family she thought she’d have. But her husband is lying to her and everything in her life is upside down, so when the stranger, Aiden, shows up as a bartender at the same party where Caroline and her husband have a very public fight, it doesn’t seem like anything out of the ordinary.
As her marriage collapses around her and the lavish lifestyle she’s built for herself starts to crumble, Caroline turns to Aiden for comfort…and revenge. After a brief and desperate fling that means nothing to Caroline and everything to him, Aiden’s obsession with Caroline, her family, and her house grows more and more disturbing. And when Caroline’s husband goes missing, her life descends into a nightmare that leaves her accused of her own husband’s murder.
