I’ve been so good about avoiding book sales this year and then I visit two this week plus an indie bookstore. I think I did a pretty good job restraining myself considering, don’t you? And I’ve already finished and loved the new Harlan Coben book.

The provocative question at the heart of the mystery: Can you believe everything you see with your own eyes, even when you desperately want to? To find the answer, Maya must finally come to terms with deep secrets and deceit in her own past before she can face the unbelievable truth about her husband—and herself.
