From NetGalley:
Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace: he has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You'd like to get to know Grace better. But it's difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are never apart. Some might call this true love.

Picture this: a dinner party at their perfect home, the conversation and wine flowing. They appear to be in their element while entertaining. And Grace's friends are eager to reciprocate with lunch the following week. Grace wants to go, but knows she never will. Her friends call—so why doesn't Grace ever answer the phone? And how can she cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim?

And why are there bars on one of the bedroom windows?

The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie?

This was a very good audioread for me!  It had some issues with plausibility, but I pushed those aside.  Ultimately, it kept me intrigued, and I didn't want to stop listening (terrific narrator!).  Love when that happens!  

Thoughts of Joy

My thanks go to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for providing me with the eGalley.


  1. Ooooh! Adding this one to my Audible wishlist!!

  2. I read this in print and loved it too.

  3. Just got it from Audible and will start listening today. I'll let you know what I think!

    1. Les ~ Oh my goodness. I hope you at least LIKE it! Like I said about another book, I've been so disappointed with my reading choices that anything that keeps my attention is a winner these days! You will have to suspend disbelief, though. Keep that in mind. Happy listening!

    2. Les ~ Have you started it?

    3. Started it on Thursday, but was distracted so I went back and started from the beginning yesterday. So far, so good!

    4. Les ~ I'm keeping my fingers crossed! :)

    5. LOVED it!! Just finished it this morning. I may have to post my review out of order since I want everyone (who can tolerate this subject matter) to read it. The audio was outstanding. I held my breath during the last three chapters, expecting the worst! Wow.

    6. Les ~ I am soooooo happy!!! HOORAY for good books! :)

    7. Les ~ You might like The Kind Worth Killing. Another 4.25/5 for me.

    8. OK, I'll add that to my Audible Wishlist. I love psychological thrillers!

      Phew. I'm think the last 1/4 of that book wore me out.

  4. It seems everyone has been raving about this one. I'm excited to read it!

    1. Stacybuckeye ~ Hope you love it! :)
