Summary

The perfect marriage. The perfect house. The perfect secret....

As I step through the cherry-red door of my new home, I know I should feel like the luckiest woman alive. I have a handsome husband, a beautiful daughter, and now the house of my dreams. And to everyone else my life looks perfect....

When the neighbors stop by to welcome us, I tell them my name is Stephanie Hamlin, and under the watchful gaze of my husband, Richard, I introduce him and our curly-haired little girl, Poppy. I smile as wide as I can and desperately hope I can fit in to this exclusive place with its pretty communal gardens. Because I’ve risked everything to be here.

Behind closed doors I try to relax, to unwind in the huge clawfoot bath and forget about my complicated past. It’s hard being the new couple on the street when you’ve got secrets.

Because the truth is, my charming husband isn’t really my husband.

And I’m not Stephanie Hamlin....

An absolutely gripping psychological thriller that will keep you guessing. If you love Behind Closed Doors, My Lovely Wife, and The Perfect Couple, you’ll be hooked.

ludicrous and a total waste of time.

Can Audible please stop giving glorified recommendations to rubbish writing this is now becoming a feature.

Yet another one where gaslighting is brought up

I get a lot of titles in mystery, of the 1500 I have 1200 would be mystery. Before this year 0 said that word, this year it's 22 so far.

Anyway, besides that word partially ruining the experience it wasn't bad. Until the end, it has 0 probability of happening. Without ruining it, the level of response of everything was very disproportionate and rushed
