I have a ton of books on my TBR Shelf, I realized something about my literary taste: it’s very singular. Actually, that’s not true. I read a lot of historical fiction and African American lit. I wanted to branch out and try something different this month, so I’m reading a thriller. I’ll post a few bookstagram pictures at my bookish Instagram if you’d like to keep up with my reading. The goal, because accountability, is to announce my current read at the beginning of the month and share my review at the end of the month. Let’s hope I can keep this going…
DESCRIPTION FROM THE BACK OF THE BOOK
She’s a liar. She’s a stalker. She’s in your house.
When Claire sees Hannah Wilson at an exclusive Manhattan hair salon, it’s like a knife slicing through barely healed scars. It may have been ten years since Claire last saw Hannah, but she has thought of her every day, and not in a good way. So Claire does what anyone would do in her position—she stalks her.
Hannah is now Mrs. Carter, living the charmed life that should have been Claire’s. It’s the life Claire used to have, before Hannah came along and took it all away from her.
Back then, Claire was a happy teenager with porcelain skin and long, wavy blond hair. Now she’s an overweight, lazy drunk with hair the color of compost and skin to match. Which is why when Hannah advertises for a housekeeper, Claire is confident she can apply and not be recognized. And since she has time on her hands, revenge on her mind, and a talent for acting…
Because what better way to seek retribution—and redress—than from within the beautiful Mrs. Hannah Carter’s own home?
Except that it’s not just Claire who has secrets. Everyone in that house seems to have something to hide.
And now, there’s no way out.
