Rating 9/10

In a town full of people who unknowingly have history together, remember the death of this girl, Janie, Rachel’s daughter who was murdered. The murderer got away and there was no evidence or so what Rachel thought. Rachel had found a tape possibly showing Janie’s murderer. Cecilia has a happy marriage and three daughters with a man whom she loves very dearly. While cleaning, she comes across a letter her husband had written ‘in case’ he had died. Out of curiosity, she read the letter to find out her husband, Jean Paul, had murdered Janie. Tess finds out her husband is in love with her best friend, leaves with her child to her mothers for a while. During the two weeks, Tess thought that her husband was sleeping with her best friend but, he was just feeling the middle-aged blues and because of her assumption, she slept with an ex-boyfriend. Rachel find injustice and decided to act, who she thought the murderer of her baby girl, wasn’t him? In this misconception, Rachel accidentally injures Cecilia’s child in the process of gaining revenge. In the end, secrets can become a ticking time bomb and injure innocents in the process.

I had loved this compelling story and glad to have read this book. It is a bit sad but there is a somewhat happy ending. However, it was left on a cliff hanger and those aggravate me. I enjoyed the layered storytelling to bring the story full circle and complete.
