Adult Fiction | Suspense | Thriller |Psychological Thriller


When a suburban housewife battles anxiety, jealousy, and a controlling husband, something has to give... and it just may be someone's life.

Samantha had grown accustomed to the high expectations of her husband; a clean house, nice meals, and a fit and nicely presented wife, to name a few. But with children came more responsibilities. A move brings them to a new home in a perfect neighborhood where she meets a friend she can finally confide in. But her envy and insecurities send her in a downward spiral of depression.

Will airing her dirty laundry to a friend put them both in danger from Samantha's very private and controlling husband? What is she willing to risk to keep the white picket fence life she's dreamed of?

A fast-moving and suspenseful look into the mind of a mom on the edge. Not everything is what it seems.


"A fast-paced, quick-witted, thought-provoking, psychological thriller with incredibly suspenseful and exhilarative turns that will keep you guessing all the way to the end. Read it in one sitting. Couldn't put it down!”
