Goodreads:  When Brian finds out that his wife, Diane, is pregnant, he is elated. He’s been patiently waiting for twelve years to become a father. But Diane has always been nervous about having children because of her family’s dark past. The timing of the pregnancy also isn’t ideal ? Diane has just been promoted, and Brian is being called away to open a new London office for his company. Fast-forward one year: being a mother has brought Diane a sense of joy that she?d never imagined and she’s head over heels for her new baby, Grace. But things are far from perfect: Brian has still not returned from London, and Diane fears leaving the baby for even a moment. As unsettling changes in those around Diane began to emerge, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems. A woman’s dark past collides head-on with her mysterious present in this surreal and gripping family drama.

Ope’s Opinion:   This book should come with a warning:  Do Not Start Unless You Have Time To Finish It !!!!  The story itself is amazing and it is so well written, it just sweeps you away.  It is a page flipper. 

This story is told from Diane and Brian’s alternating points of view. The pieces of the story are slowly revealed from the past and present.  It was clear there was something wrong, but I kept changing my mind as to what I thought was really going on.  

I found myself actually holding my breath at times wondering what was going to happen next.  Steena Holmes can really kept me on the edge of my seat.

  Although you were given hints, it was not clear what happened until the very end.   

Rating:  Five Chairs – This book is so good it will be passed on and on and on….
