A sophisticated romantic thriller, in the vain of Gone Girl, minus the graphic violence.
Attorney, Chenille Conrad, has mysteriously disappeared. Her husband, Daniel, finds her BMW in the garage, her cell in her Gucci purse, and her clothes undisturbed in the closet. She never goes anywhere without her phone. Where is she? He's confident she wouldn't leave him. They're deeply in love, and on the fast track to successful careers, a house in the suburbs, and a family to fill it. They talked at noon and agreed salacious sex was the plan for the evening. She had to have been abducted.
When the police find blood stains on the front porch, and on her sweatshirt, Daniel becomes the primary suspect. Profiled by the detective as a jealous, control freak, he must prove his innocence. He puts the pieces of the puzzle together, yet can't overcome his need to protect his wife. As the investigation unfolds, shocking clues exposing her motivations, and true persona, are revealed. Who is this woman he married? Chenille's greed and tenacity have thrown her into an inescapable web of her own creation, putting her life, and that of her young son, in danger.
Written with alternating, yet simultaneous points of view, a multi-cultural triad of love stories evolve, each with their own unexpected outcome. An intriguing story of love, lies, and larceny with an unpredictable happily-ever-after.
I was hooked from page one and devoured this fast-paced Romantic/Thriller in twenty-four hours.
I was hooked from page one and devoured this fast-paced Romantic/Thriller in twenty-four hours. I found Chenille to be a mix of selfish, greedy, dishonest, yet lovable, and intriguing all at the same time. I love how the author slips back and forth between the future, present, and seamlessly tells the story with different POV’s. Chenille is so impulsive that this makes for one interesting story. Chenille being a lawyer makes her deceit and crime all the more puzzling until we learn more of her backstory. This book really has it all and took me on an adventure of crime, adultery, and intrigue. I recommend putting some time aside once you start reading this book, it is that fast-paced and interesting. There is a bit of a cliffhanger that has me wanting to read the next installment as soon as it is available.
