Publisher's Summary

You don't remember her - but she remembers you.
On the face of it, Emma and Nina have very little in common. Isolated and exhausted by early motherhood, Emma finds her confidence is fading fast. Nina - sophisticated, generous, effortlessly in control - seems to have all the answers.
It's easy to see why Emma is drawn to Nina. But what does Nina see in her?
A seemingly innocent friendship slowly develops into a dangerous game of cat and mouse as Nina eases her way into Emma's life. Soon, it becomes clear that Nina wants something from the unwitting Emma - something that might just destroy her.


What the Critics Say

"...Writing with a quiet confidence and an eye for the most perfect details, Ms. Lane lures her readers into the lives of Nina and Emma, two women at opposite ends of raising a family. Ms. Lane finds the extraordinary in the ordinary, and this gift will keep readers enthralled until the novel's thrilling end." (Lori Roy, author of Bent Road and Until She Comes Home)
"A spellbinding book. Think of Virginia Woolf under the influence of Claude Chabrol. Just beneath the smooth, beautiful sentences lies a world alive with terror." (Tom McNeal, author of To Be Sung Underwater)

Promising, but then turns into a Lifetime movie

Would you try another book from Harriet Lane and/or Julie Maisey?

I actually was pretty miffed that audible recommended this book. I thought I was getting a novel about two women similar in age but at divergent points in their lives. The early hints that they had met before was interesting, I even thought it interesting that their was a revenge plot possibly brought about by the unrealized actions of the other character. But then it just gets into the "she thought they were friends, but one of them is a killer" territory. DO NOT LISTEN if you are the mother of young children.

Like watching a train wreck in very slow motion.

The story line is very good but the author drags it and stretches it out until you almost lose interest. It's worth listening to and the plot will make you think about the ones who trust your friendships and your children with.
