I’d like to thank Netgalley and the author for my copy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review.

Wow! I feel lucky to have found another great debut in such a short period of time. This book came highly recommended from a few Goodreads friends and it did not disappoint.

Sarah Johnson is a stay at home mom raising 2 children with a seemingly perfect life to the outsider. After 14 years of marriage however, she receives a call one evening from a hit man who has been hired by her husband. She is confronted with evidence of her husband’s infidelity and is given a choice- if she can raise double the amount of cash to be paid by her husband, Mike, in 14 days, the hit man will not kill her. The catch is that the only way she can scrape together $100,000 would be to kill her husband and pay it out of his insurance policy.

Talk about a fantastic plot and premise for a thriller! Not only was this one fast paced, it had exceptional character development in a short book (around 225 pages I believe). I could feel my heart beating faster with each call she got reminding her of the impending doom hanging over her head. Mike is clearly an extremely unlikable character, and as we unearth more of his secrets I felt inclined to encourage Sarah to off him. And that ending? Whoa. I had a few aspects figured out, but had not expected the whopper twists in the ending. I think my favorite scenes were those with Sarah and her neighbor Bruce. This book was thrilling with a side of romance that I could stomach. Overall a fantastic read that I highly recommend!
