OrangeReviewStarPromising an idyllic respite from their everyday routine, "the best day ever," Paul Strom whisks his wife, Mia, away from their suburban home in Columbus, OH, to Lake Erie for a romantic weekend. Their lakeside retreat, in its prestigious gated community, is just one benefit of the couple's extravagant lifestyle. Paul and the much younger Mia met a decade ago at the advertising agency where he was an executive and she a promising newcomer. After a whirlwind romance, they married, set up housekeeping, and Mia spent the next decade at home raising their two young sons. As Paul narrates this memorable day in their life, offering glimpses into the past and hints of his motivations for the trip, disturbing secrets bubble under the surface, threatening to compromise their relaxing vacation.
VERDICT This latest psychological thriller from best-selling Rouda (The Goodbye Year) is destined to fly off the shelves, enticing readers to ride along as this multifaceted day in the life of the Stroms unfolds.
