Gina Royal is the definition of average—a shy Midwestern housewife with a happy marriage and two adorable children. But when a car accident reveals her husband’s secret life as a serial killer, she must remake herself as Gwen Proctor—the ultimate warrior mom.
With her ex now in prison, Gwen has finally found refuge in a new home on remote Stillhouse Lake. Though still the target of stalkers and Internet trolls who think she had something to do with her husband’s crimes, Gwen dares to think her kids can finally grow up in peace.
But just when she’s starting to feel at ease in her new identity, a body turns up in the lake—and threatening letters start arriving from an all-too-familiar address. Gwen Proctor must keep friends close and enemies at bay to avoid being exposed—or watch her kids fall victim to a killer who takes pleasure in tormenting her. One thing is certain: she’s learned how to fight evil. And she’ll never stop.
This is by far one of the best psychological thrillers that I have read so far this year! Gina Royal, now Gwen Proctor, was a meek mild housewife turned kick-ass survivalist due to the fact her husband was discovered to be a serial killer. Now Gina/Gwen has one focus, to hide and protect her 2 children from her haters that think she knew what her husband was up to. Just when you think you have this one figured out it goes down a whole different path, in other words this will keep you om the edge of your seat.
Books like this seem to be few and far between and this had all my criteria for a good suspense/thriller; creepy, gripping with lots lots of twists. I loved how Gwen became a tough survivalist and taught her children as well. I look forward to the second book because there was a bit of a cliffhanger in this one.
