Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "A riveting new thriller about the lies we tell ourselves from the author of Saving Meghan. Just because you love someone doesn't mean you know them. Nina Garrity learned that the hard way after discovering that her missing husband, Glen, had been leading a double life with another woman. But Glen's gone-presumably drowned while fishing on his boat-so she can't confront him about the affair or any of his other misdeeds. A year and a half after the accident, Nina considers herself a widow, even though the police never found a body. Following a chance encounter with Simon Fitch, a teacher from her daughter Maggie's middle school, Nina finds love again and has hopes of putting her shattered life back together. Simon, a widower still grieving the suicide of his first wife, has found his dream girl in Nina. His charm and affections help break through to a heart hardened by betrayal. Nina's teenage son, Connor, embraces Simon as the father he wishes his dad could have been, but Maggie sees a far darker side to this new man in their lives. Even Nina's good friends wonder if Simon is supremely devoted-or dangerously possessive. But Nina is committed, not only to her soon-to-be new husband but also to resuming her former career as a social worker. Before she can move forward, however, Nina must first clear her conscience that she's not making another terrible choice in a man. In doing so, she will uncover the shocking truth: the greatest danger to her, and her children, are the lies people tell themselves"--

    Nina Garrity is moving on with her life, after suffering betrayal and loss. Her husband, Glen, disappeared under mysterious circumstances on a fishing trip (blood was found in his empty boat), leaving Nina nearly insolvent with children Connor, now in high school, and Maggie, now in middle school. Signs that Glen had been living a lie for years cause further turmoil. Then Nina finds love again with middle-school teacher Simon Fitch, with whom she buys a house and embarks on a new life together. But signs of trouble appear, notably with Maggie, who was closest to her dad and has detected a dark, even murderous look in Simon's eyes. Nina, in love, tries to ignore indications that Simon is trying to keep her away from close friends and discouraging her from returning to her career as a social worker. Just how bad the situation is, and how bad it might become, isn't apparent until mid-book. From the author of Saving Meghan (2019), this is an involving domestic thriller about love gone awry and a woman still not cautious enough about the men in her life. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
