Claire Montgomery has a lifetime of sensible decisions behind her. Yet all it takes is one impulsive indiscretion to bring everything crashing down--her marriage to a wealthy entrepreneur, her status as half of one of Denver society's power couples, and the future she dreamed of for their seventeen-year-old son, Nick. Claire's husband, Michael, angrily blames her for the recklessness that has left Nick's life in the balance, though not nearly as much as Claire blames herself. But as Nick struggles to move forward, Claire too begins inching toward a reimagined future. Along with a fresh perspective come new questions. Are there other reasons for her fractured relationship and Michael's increasingly erratic behavior? Has he, too, been harboring painful secrets? And does Claire dare to find the real truth, when her seamlessly decorated world of privilege and security is at stake?

Kritters Thoughts:  Claire Montgomery makes a decision that for some doesn't make this huge of an impact on their life, but this changes Claire's life in a HUGE way.  Her decision doesn't just affect her, it also affects her marriage and her child.  

When I first started this book, I was worried that this storyline couldn't fill 352 pages because the first few pages revealed most of the plot, but thankfully after the "accident" there was a lot to the story.  This is basically a family drama with no frills and nothing too crazy or soap opera, but that is what I liked about it, that there was drama, but it wasn't over the top and could have even been a memoir.

Unfortunately, the review for this book is short because I can't share too much, I don't want to ruin the major plot point.  I think it is a great read, I would recommend curling up with it in the winter with a cup of tea.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from BookSparks PR.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.

  1. Saying that you can't share too much makes we want to read it to find out what it is!
