Love ties. Murder binds.
Maggie never felt as though she belonged until Chris Stevens showed her what true happiness meant. Ten years into their marriage, miscarriages and infidelities have scarred them both. Despite their perfect-couple image, Maggie can’t look at Chris with anything but resentment. When a charismatic stranger offers the opportunity for a little harmless flirtation, she jumps into the game.
But charm soon turns to malice, and a deadly split-second decision forces Maggie and Chris onto a dangerous path fraught with secrets, lies, and guilt. With no one else to turn to—no one she dares trust—Maggie will ultimately learn just how binding marital ties can be.

This book confused me. It had so much potential. I just can't figure out why the author had the characters do the things they did...
This book isn't just about murder or relationships. It's about deceit. Every character in this book is deceitful and dishonest with themselves and each other. It just didn't work for me. I couldn't tell what was up and what was down. There is no hero of this book. Not one character is likeable.
I think the biggest villain in this book is Maggie. She is so vapid and self absorbed, I didn't feel sorry for anything life threw at her. Not single thing. I felt a little bad for Chris, in the beginning. But again, these characters...
And what was with that ending? It completely ruined a book that drug to begin with. Had it been a more believable and appropriate ending, it could have saved the book.
