“It’s much easier to make money if you don’t care who you hurt. If you have scruples, it’s much harder to get rich.”


Synopsis: “Anne and Marco Conti seem to have it all–a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora. But one night when they are at a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately focuses on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story.

Inside the curtained house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping secrets, secrets they’ve kept for years.

What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family–a chilling tale of deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the final shocking twist.” (via Goodreads)

Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Fiction, Suspense

    1. I understand!! I’m the same way about books!! I like to go into them as blindly as possible. πŸ˜€ Can’t wait to hear what you think about it!! It really is crazy how much we have in common, I love it! ❀

  1. β€œIt’s much easier to make money if you don’t care who you hurt. If you have scruples, it’s much harder to get rich.” Is very true. I didn’t have the heart to lie to people about opening up credit cards when I worked at Macy’s. I never pushed for it and my managers would always give me shit about it.
    Anyway, sounds like an ok book. I’ll put it on my list just in case. I finished reading the passage trilogy over the weekend and started on the Nicholas sparks novels my godmother gave me. I already finished one, got two more to go lol.
    Oh by the way, I sent you an email, I hope you got it, otherwise I probably wrote it out wrong lmao. I tried to double check but I’m a little tired right now lol.

    1. Lol ah I’d be the same way!! My co-workers always make fun of me for being “too nice” πŸ˜› it was an okay book. I’m not sure how I feel about the ending.. I kinda hated it. I’ve actually never read a Nicholas Sparks novel (idk if I told you that already, sorry if I have). Looking forward to reading your reviews on the book if you decide to write them. πŸ˜€

      1. Being nice isn’t a bad thing, we need more of that in this cruel world. But if they said “stand up for yourself a bit more” I would agree with that. Because I need to do that more often too lol. People take advantage of my kindness too often.
        But yeah, some endings to some stories are like….meh.. all that for that ending?! Lol
        I’ll be writing up a review of the 2nd book in the trilogy. I need to condense it somehow lol and I’ll also get started on the Nicholas sparks one lol.

      2. Hahah I always stand up for myself, people get surprised because I am so nice until someone gives me a reason not to be!! I hate to be mean for no reason & I can’t stand people who are. πŸ˜›
        I know!! I hate stupid endings lol. I hate cliffhangers too. I feel like even if there is going to be a sequel there shouldn’t be cliffhangers!!
        Looking forward to reading your reviews! πŸ˜€
