Publisher's Summary

In this intense, multilayered domestic drama, two families become entangled in a web of lies, secrets, and betrayal that results in an act of violence so shocking their love may not survive.
On the outside, Lily Isley's life seems perfect: a wealthy husband, a ritzy gated community in Dallas, and a handsome son, AJ - a decorated marine about to be married to his love, Shea. But when a bridesmaid is murdered in AJ's apartment and he can't be found, Lily's world collapses and a long-held family secret is at risk of exposure.
Dru Gallagher's life took a different course. After her ex-husband, suffering from post-traumatic stress, threatened her and her daughter, Shea, with a shotgun, Dru was forced to leave her marriage and forge ahead as a working-class single mom. Now, the anger she sees in war veteran AJ's eyes is heartbreakingly familiar - and makes Dru deeply afraid for her daughter's safety...especially after Shea's best friend and maid of honor is found dead.
With a killer on the loose and time running out, Lily and Dru, two very different women, unite in a single goal: to save their precious children from scandal, even from death. But will the mothers' protection be enough, or will the fateful secret they expose - and the truth it reveals - destroy every hope of love?

Unlikeable Characters In An Unlikeable Story

I'm compelled to write because I found the character of Drew almost unbearable in her unyielding judgement about everyone and everything-including her daughter Shay. The story is positioned as a thriller, but it's so formulaic that I had already figured out the culprit at a third of the way through, and then had to suffer to the end out of respect to the writer.

I can certainly complement Ms. Sissel as she drew exposition that was real to life with personalities that were authentic. However, the effort to complete the book wasn't outweighed with satisfaction.

The narrator was more than competent and used just the right whiny, sniveling tone with Drew-making me dislike her even more!

Alright story

These two mothers did not work together to save their children, as the details state. I guessed the "bad guy" the moment he was introduced to the story. The character, Edward, was of no consequence to the story at all. The notion that real-life adults keep these kind of secrets is was like a mediocre Hallmark made for tv movie. But if you like that sort of thing, then this book is for you.
