Paige Donahue has always lived in her sister Camille's shadow. As children, Camille had the grades, the friends, and their parents' love, while Paige was left with hand-me-downs and criticism. Now as adults, Camille lives an idyllic life with her husband, Pierce, and her two perfect children in a beautiful home, while Paige is stuck in a small condo with bills she can't afford to pay. But no more. With seeds of doubt planted in both Camille's and Pierce's minds, Paige's plan to steal her brother-in law starts to work. But when he reveals his decision to make his marriage work, a desperate Paige moves from envy to madness. What results from her dangerous scheme is something no one could have imagined.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn Alleyne | 1/16/2014

    " For those of you who are fans of the author's Reverend Black's works, as I am, this is a good departure from that. I thought the story was a bit disjointed but it is a story of redemption and how sometimes we get so wrapped up in our own issues, we don't always remember our parents had lives and had issues themselves that can sometimes prevent them from doing the best job they need to. "
