How far would you go to protect your family? To protect your children? How many lies would you tell? Would you dare to admit the darkest truths—even to yourself?

Jeanne Cross is an ordinary suburban wife and mother with a seemingly “perfect” life when Ali Mather arrives on the scene, breaking all the rules and breaking hearts. Almost against her will, Jeanne is drawn to this powerfully seductive woman, a fascination that soon begins to infect Jeanne’s husband as well as their teenage son. Though their friendship seems unlikely and even dangerous to their mutual acquaintances, Ali and Jeanne are connected by deep emotional needs, vulnerabilities, and long-held secrets that Ali has been privately recording in her diary.

The diary also holds the key to something darker. Though she can’t prove it, Ali is convinced someone has been entering her house when she is not at home—and not with the usual intentions. What this burglar wants is nothing less than a piece of Ali’s soul.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Campos | 1/26/2014

    " I got this book for free and thought it sounded intriguing. I figured out "whodunnit" within the first 100 pages. I prolly wouldn't read another book by Patry Francis...Pretty run of the mill. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sharon Mauk | 1/12/2014

    " Can't believe I rad the whole thing...kinda like a train wreck....I couldn't stop! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Erhardt | 1/12/2014

    " Lots of twists and surprises, but I never felt as though I got to know the characters enough to care about any of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara Olson | 1/10/2014

    " This was really very differnt. I had a hard time putting it down. The plot twisted and turned in every direction to a very surprising ending "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Merlajean Gartland | 1/8/2014

    " I really really liked this book until I came to the end. The ending just doesn't make sense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 1/5/2014

    " An addictive book where every character is full of chilling surprises. It really shows how little you know your own friends and family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 1/1/2014

    " This was a fun read. Kept me guessing until the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 12/29/2013

    " This book started slow, but really picked up mid-way through. It was a good read, but a bit predictable, also pretty dark too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 12/28/2013

    " It took me a few chapters to really be interested in reading more, but once I was hooked I didn't want to put it down. I enjoyed the twists and turns of the plot, but the end totally ruined it for me. It was so ridiculously unbelieveble I was left feeling like I'd wasted my time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 12/8/2013

    " Slow read... does not keep my attention. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ivy | 11/11/2013

    " A compulsive, page-turning book, Patry Francis's assured writing style propels this, her first novel about truth and its consequences. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy Bryce | 11/5/2013

    " This book was unexpectedly good. There were constant plot twists which made it a quick read. Liked (not loved) the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 n.r. | 3/26/2013

    " This was a good debut book. There were a few things that struck me as inconsistent but the strong writing and characterization allowed me to over look those things and continue to enjoy the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebekah | 3/13/2013

    " "I felt like the mad woman who had finally escaped from the attic." - I love the literary reference. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dre | 5/28/2012

    " This was a great story. I didn't even read what it was about before I started reading it or I would have put it down b/c I don't usually like mystery but this was fantastic. Couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa Wagner | 5/13/2012

    " Overall. I enjoyed this book. Something about the way it was written makes you want to keep reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debby | 11/11/2011

    " Fascinating, lots of twists and turns, I could hardly put it down, hope this is not her only book. Takes a little to get into it, but once you do it grabs you and won't let go. Next time you see a "perfect" family you'll look a little harder. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 9/24/2011

    " After having this from the library for about three months (I'm a terrible patron), I finally had time to read it this weekend. It's good that I didn't have a lot going on, because once I started I didn't want to stop. I would recommend it for anyone who likes a good twisty/turny story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gillian | 5/16/2011

    " Well I finished this in a flash! So many twists and turns, an original story which I would highly reccomend. Can't wait for more books by this author! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer | 3/22/2011

    " An absolute waste of my time. Kickin' myself for sticking with it. "

    " In-depth characters, a compelling plot, mysteries, twists, surprises . . . This book has the lot. A true gem.

    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon | 6/26/2010

    " This book was odd for me. The mechanics were good; I just didn't get pulled into the characters, espically Jeanne. I felt like I saw the the guilty party from the start. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 3/26/2010

    " Great book, took me a while to get into it but it really heated up mid way and had great twists at the end! "
