When Charlotte married the very wealthy and slightly older Paul, it caused a ripple of gossip in their small lakeside town. But her secure, charmed married life starts to unravel when a woman's body is discovered floating in Lake Crosby, right outside their home. Immediately Charlotte remembers waking up to an empty bed, Paul later saying he went out for an early run. However, when the police begin their questioning, Paul lies and says he was home all morning with Charlotte, pressuring her to confirm his story.
What seemed like a small lie chafes at Charlotte, all the more when she realizes she saw Paul speaking to the murdered woman days before in town, though Paul claims he's never met her. But surely there's an innocent reason behind his lies. The victim, Sienna, was a true crime reporter, investigating an unsolved missing persons case that happened decades before and turned into a local urban legend. She was reporting her discoveries by podcast in real time.
As secrets, and people, from Paul's past begin to surface, and his connection to the unsolved case becomes more direct, Charlotte doesn't know who to trust – her heart who knows Paul to be a good man or her growing suspicion? Did she marry a killer? Or is someone else watching their every move? S20TR6 S20 HarperCollins & Harlequin Trade Paperback Frontlist Promotion 04/30/20
