Synposis:Doctor Shelby Cooper is a brilliant research scientist with a hidden past steeped in secrets and lies–lies about her true identity, her family and her past. Her dream life is disrupted when she is framed by a stalker for the murder of her ex lover. The family is falling apart as her husband tries to find the stalker before Shelby is convicted of a murder she didn’t commit and his own secrets disrupt their future even more.
This book is full of suspenseful twists as the layers are pulled back on the life of Shelby Cooper. I stayed on the edge of my seat and didn’t want to stop reading. I liked the switching of perspective showing the thoughts of the different characters as I tried to figure out who the stalker was. Just when I thought, it couldn’t get any worse for Shelby more secrets came to light. Ms. Kabongo’s description of the family turmoil was undeniably realistic and I felt like she could have been describing some of my family members. At Chapter 78, the story begins to move at warp speed and we start reading about Shelby being released from prison. The only part I didn’t like about the book was the ending. I felt like it ended too fast with too many unanswered questions; for example how Shelby was released and how she figured out who her stalker was. Overall, very good read.
