Liza Cole has thirty days to write the thriller that could put her back on the bestseller list. In the meantime, she’s struggling to start a family with her husband, who is distracted by the disappearance of his best friend, Nick. With stresses weighing her down in both her professional and her personal lives, Liza escapes into writing her latest heroine, Beth.
Beth is a new mother who suspects her husband is cheating on her while she’s home alone caring for their newborn. Angry and betrayed, she sets out to catch him in the act and make him pay for shattering the illusion of their perfect life. But before she realizes it, she’s tossing the body of her husband’s mistress into the East River.
Then the lines between fiction and reality begin to blur. Nick’s body is dragged from the same river and Liza’s husband is arrested for his murder. Before her deadline is up, Liza will have to face up to the truths about the people around her, including herself. If she doesn’t, the end of her heroine’s story could be the end of her own.
Genre: Mystery / Thriller
My Rating: **** (4 of 5 stars)
This was an edge-of-your-seat thriller that kept me guessing. Liza is an author, and her agent gives her 30 days to come up with a novel that will wow him and keep her writing career alive. She’s also trying to conceive the child she thinks will make her husband happy again. The story moves between Liza’s world and her protagonist Beth’s world, and the suspense builds as the line between fantasy and reality start to blur. I highly recommend this one to thriller fans!
