Publisher's Summary

Victoria Barnett has it all: a great career as a nurse practitioner, a handsome and loving husband, a beautiful home in the suburbs, and a plan to fill it with children. Life is perfect—or so it seems. Then she’s in a terrible accident...and everything falls apart. Now Victoria is unable to walk. She can’t feed or dress herself. She can’t even speak. She is confined to the top floor of her house with 24-hour care.

Sylvia Robinson is hired by Victoria’s husband to help care for her. But it turns out Victoria isn’t as impaired as Sylvia was led to believe. There’s a story Victoria desperately wants to tell...if only she could get the words out. Then Sylvia discovers Victoria’s diary hidden away in a drawer. And what’s inside is shocking.

Really enjoyed this!

This book was really good, the suspense, and the twist, were so entertaining! The only reason this isn't a 4-star read for me personally is because it feels so similar to her other books that the twists weren't quite as shocking to me.

same story as veriry

if you have read Verity then do not bother with this book, it's a lesser version of it. Almost identical.

Too similar to other storyline’s

Reminded me a bit of Verity, A little predictable for me and the narrators voice seemed a bit whiny, intonations seemed out of balance and it annoyed me a lot (sorry but it was pithy) I much preferred the Housemaids secret to this story.

So annoyingly predictable 🙄

I wish I had read the Goodreads reviews. Way too similar to another certain book. I couldn't help but compare

Love the Author and Narrator

Always a good twist in this authors stories. The Narrator plays the characters well. Can’t stop listening to Freida’s stories. Once you start with her stories you will be hooked!
