You married him. But can you trust him with your life?

Standing on the balcony of our gorgeous villa, I gaze out at the turquoise sea and drink in the white-sand beach and palm trees. I’m in paradise with my new husband, Owen, by my side and my life couldn’t be more perfect. I can’t imagine that anything bad could ever happen, here on this beautiful island…

I turn to clink glasses with my husband. His mysterious brown eyes and strong arms fill my heart with happiness. When we met, it was love at first sight and, after a whirlwind six month romance, we married. I’m determined to fill our honeymoon with precious memories of late-night swims and champagne breakfasts.

But one night Owen and I have our first argument. I yell at him for drinking too much and he accuses me of flirting with another man. I’m distraught and, the next morning, I wake up early and go for a walk along the cliff-tops to clear my head.

As I climb down the sandy steps to the lagoon, my heart hammers in my chest when I see a trail of blood spots.

At the bottom of the cliff is the body of a woman… who looks just like me.

The book starts off with a bang in the prologue. It’s engaging and draws you in. This story is told in three different perspectives: Sienna, Owen, and The Killer. Davids does a great job making you think that you’ve got it all figured out. I was suspicious of almost every character and yet I never even guessed correctly as to who the killer was! With this book less than 300 pages, this book is an easy and quick read because it is action packed. I enjoyed that the author set up the scene rather quickly, and that all the action took place over the course of one night. Davids also did a great job of providing enough description of Oyster Island without it being too much. I was still able to picture it vividly. I really liked Sienna. I thought she was a very believable character. This is another must read and I feel so lucky that I’ve been reading such good books lately. I’ll be adding this author into my “automatic reads” list!
