I loved this thriller, absolutely loved it. Gina Royal is a housewife with two perfect children, a boy and a girl of course. Her husband, Melvin, is a hard worker and a good husband. Until one day, a car crashes into their garage and when Gina returns, she finds the cops all over her house and she is placed under arrest. Turns out, and this doesn't spoil the book, that the crash revealed her husband's horrible secret.
Gina spends a year in jail before being acquitted. She then goes into hiding with her kids as the horrible trolls of the world believe her to be complicit in her husband's crimes and won't leave her alone. She relocates several times but at the time of this book, she is living in Stillhouse Lake, a remote village. The kids are schooled on how to leave instantly should they need to relocate again and how precisely they need to lock down the house every day and night. Life in temporary at best. Then a body surfaces in the lake and Gina's life threatens to unravel again.
I couldn't wait to pick this up every night. It is utterly compelling and towards the end, I could feel my heart pounding. Thankfully there is a sequel, currently patiently waiting on my TBR pile!
