Publisher's Summary

Two families. One house swap. A vacation to die for.

The white-washed Italian villa is perfect. I thought it might feel odd, living in a stranger’s house for the summer, but as my husband and children swim in the infinity pool, I start to relax. And then, in the back of a wardrobe, I find something that shatters everything....

Sparkling green eyes, square jaw, lopsided smile. A young man with his arm around a beautiful woman. The picture is old and faded, but I’d recognize him anywhere. The man is my husband.

But we’ve never met the family we’ve swapped homes with, and my husband swears it isn’t him in the photo. He’s lying. We argue on the balcony with the sun setting behind us, and I storm out.

When I finally calm down enough to go back to the villa to confront him, I find his dead body sprawled across the veranda.

Who killed my husband? Was our marriage a lie? And are my children now in terrible danger?

What a Suspenseful story!!!

I absolutely Loved this book. What a suspenseful plot. The twist and turns and complex story line had me listening to this in one night.
Beautifully written again by Shalini Boland she never disappoints and I love her writing. I have now ordered all of her books and have listened to most. The narration by Katie Villa keeps you engrossed in the story. She did an amazing job.
It’s a tremendous pleasure for me to recommend this book.
Absolutely worth a Credit.

A twisty mystery

This was my first story written by Shalini Boland. I hated to stop listening and finished it in two days. The story grabbed me right from the first words. The narrator was excellent and I loved all the twists and turns.

Simple Story

Very simple story line… I thought it would be more interesting… it was not. Very predictable.
