First off I want to say a huge thank you to the publisher Random House Publishing Group - Ballantine , the author J.P. Delaney , and to NetGalley for inviting me to read an review it, and sorry for been a bit late with it. Now on to my thoughts : WOW what a read , one of my friends recommended it to me as well as picked it from a list of NetGalley ARCs I showed her , she kept telling me I had to read it , that I would love it , and that it was twisted just like I like my thrillers and man was she right, I'm so glad that I listened and read it this month . Because once I started I didn't want to put it down. And it was all thinks to how twisted it was , and the psychopath that was in the story, it was the the type of read that I would pick up and read on a stormy day because of the atmosphere which was gripping, as well as psychological, and can we talk about the high tensioned it makes you feel as well as the family drama plays out and lets just say that by the time the story is done your poor nerves are shoot .
What if you found out that your family isn't yours at all? How far would you go to protect them? A gripping new psychological thriller from the bestselling author of The Girl Before. . . .
Pete Riley answers the door one morning and lets in a parent's worst nightmare. On his doorstep is Miles Lambert, a stranger who breaks the devastating news that Pete's son, Theo, isn't actually his son--he is the Lamberts', switched at birth by an understaffed hospital while their real son was sent home with Miles and his wife, Lucy. For Pete, his partner Maddie, and the little boy they've been raising for the past two years, life will never be the same again.
The two families, reeling from the shock, take comfort in shared good intentions, eagerly entwining their very different lives in the hope of becoming one unconventional modern family. But a plan to sue the hospital triggers an official investigation that unearths some disturbing questions about the night their children were switched. How much can they trust the other parents--or even each other? What secrets are hidden behind the Lamberts' glossy front door? Stretched to the breaking point, Pete and Maddie discover they will each stop at nothing to keep their family safe.
They are done playing nice.
