Terry Painter enjoys her quiet life in tranquil Delray, Florida, where the single, forty-year-old nurse lives alone in the house she inherited from her mother. When young, vibrant Alison Simms rents the cottage on her property, the two women strike up a fast friendship — and Terry is swept into a fantastic new life: dinners out, shopping, makeovers, even flirting with the handsome son of one of her elderly patients. But nothing about her newfound companion is as it appears, as Terry discovers when Alison’s closely guarded past comes to light. Now Terry is locked into a race to reclaim her own life — before she opens the door any further to the stranger she thought she knew…
I read this book in 2008 and it’s the most memorable suspense/thriller I’ve ever read. That was the last time I have ever stayed up all night reading a book from start to finish because I couldn’t put it down. Very suspenseful and I never saw the twist coming in the end. I even remember being so jumpy every time I heard a noise in my house because the book had me literally on the edge of my seat! I loved it and whenever someone asks for a good suspense recommendation, this is the first book I always recommend.
