The plane lifted slightly, and she experienced a sudden wave of relaxation so intense that it felt like she’d keep on feeling it even if the plane started tumbling toward the ocean. Her fingers were intertwined with Bruce’s. He leaned across her and pointed through the oval side window. ‘See the island?’
After a whirlwind fairy-tale romance, Abigail Baskin marries freshly minted Sillicon-Valley millionaire Bruce Lamb.
For their honeymoon, he whisks her away to Heart Pond Island, a friend’s exclusive retreat off the Maine coast. But once there, Abigail starts to think she’s noticed some alarming warning signs about this seemingly idyllic off-grid resort. When she recognises one of their fellow guests as the good-looking, charismatic stranger who, weeks earlier, she slept with at her own bachelorette party, her perfect new life threatens to come crashing down.
Trapped on this island, can Abigail possibly outrun the myriad lies that surround her marriage?
