About the book

I gaze at my husband’s once-handsome face, so still and pale in the hospital bed. The doctors say I should keep talking. He might be able to hear me even after the terrible accident that left him fighting for his life. But all I have to whisper to my husband is this: I know what you did.

Every day I wave my husband Damon off with a kiss and a smile, drive our precious children to  school, and make sure our house is pristine before preparing a delicious  meal. I pretend I’m not filled with fury that he once nearly destroyed our perfect life. It’s important to carry on as normal.

That is, until the accident.

My husband was hit by a car. It was pouring with rain. Nobody saw what happened. But the police are asking questions…

Do they know about the terrible argument we had that day?

Do they know about the text message I sent, telling someone to Delete everything?

And do they know that no-one is happier that my husband is in a hospital bed, than me?

My Review

I always love when I see a new book by Nicole Trope.  I love the voice she gives to the characters and the unexpected bits in her books.  I’ll admit in this one I knew where it was going.  Not sure if I was supposed to or not, but I always seemed to know where this one was heading.  Except for one piece.  But honestly, I like her style of writing and enjoyed the read.

I loved the start of this one.  It really grabbed me.  There were multiple calls about a pedestrian being hit on a rainy street and everyone calling in had a widely different description of the car that hit him.  Let me forewarn you that no one in this is likable.  The more you read about Damon, the more slimey he becomes.  And while I am not married, these women are nuts.  There are four POVs recounting what has happened after the accident.  The wife, his psychologist, his mistress and a mystery woman that obviously cares for him.  It didn’t take me long to figure out where this one was headed, but of course I’ve been wrong before.

The chapters are short and the pace is quick.  I read this in just a few hours and really never thought about putting it down. It’s more a domestic mystery then a thriller, but I really enjoyed it.

If you a fan of cheating husbands and the family drama that ensues, you need to pick this one up.


About the author

Nicole Trope went to university to study Law but realised the error of her ways when she did very badly on her first law essay because-as her professor pointed out- It’s not meant to be a story, She studied teaching instead and used her holidays to work on her writing career and complete a Masters’ degree in Children’s Literature. The idea for her first published novel, The Boy under the Table, was so scary that it took a year for her to find the courage to write the emotional story. She went on to publish a further five novels in Australia before joining Bookouture in 2019. She is a USA Today and Amazon bestseller in the USA, UK, AUS and CAN. She lives in Sydney with her husband and three children.
