Williams’s latest (following The Wife Before) is a fast-paced, psychological trip with a climax that will shock the most voracious readers. Adira Smith-Cortez has it all. Her women’s clothing company is thriving, putting millions into her bank account. Her husband, Gabriel, and her mansion are both fully Instagram-worthy. Everything’s coming up Adira—until it isn’t. Gabriel starts acting dodgy, and Adira follows him to not one, but two mistresses. Suddenly, Adira’s perfect life is crashing. When one mistress approaches Adira with a plan to take care of the other and get Gabriel back, Adira fights for control and the comforts of her life. What she doesn’t realize is that control was never hers to begin with. The changing POV provides a lens into her murky past and sheds much-needed light on why her future is playing out the way it is.
VERDICT Williams has a winner on her hands. Recommended for fans of Alyssa Cole, Liv Constantine, and Megan Goldin.
