About the book:
A moment of pleasure leads to a deadly game of cat and mouse in this slick and suspenseful thriller.
Kit Finn meets handsome sculptor Matt Healy on a business trip and the two share a night of passion. They arrange a second date, but when Kit arrives at Matt’s apartment she is greeted by a stranger claiming he is the real Matt and that his identity was stolen.
Realising she has been duped Kit decides to put the encounter behind her. Shortly after, the police ask her to identify a man killed in a hit and run, carrying only her business card, and she is shocked to find the dead man is the person she knows as the genuine Matt Healy.
Kit fears she has become unintentionally embroiled in a sinister web of deceit. With no real evidence to take to police, Kit resolves to unravel the mystery herself. But can she do so before more lives, including her own, are put in danger?
For fans of psychological suspense and compulsive mysteries, don’t miss this tense and page-turning novel.
Kit is feeling like her life lacks something. When she meets Matt Healey on a business trip and he asks her to dinner, she thinks: “maybe having dinner with a total stranger would satisfy that yearning … for a little bit of danger”. Rule number one: don’t have dinner with strangers! The dinner (and a night in his hotel room) are only the start, and Kit is about to find herself in a world of danger she wasn’t prepared for. Matt invites Kit to his apartment, but when she arrives the man who answers the door declares himself to be Matt Healey – but it’s not the same man. Hello. Yes. I was hooked at this point.
The action of this story never lets up. Kit tries to return to her business as an interior decorator, but there are crimes and twists all around her and everything keeps coming back to the man who claimed to be Matt.
I loved that Kit’s day job was something unusual and I got very much caught up in the decorating side of the story (my Pinterest inspiration boards have grown very nicely as a result!) It gave something that was such a harsh contrast to the world of business that Matt was in, and made all of the action that little bit more dangerous to me.
The guy pretending to be Matt fascinated me and I genuinely couldn’t guess what his story was until it was revealed . Sometimes I wanted to reach into the pages and throttle Kit whilst screaming at her to be sensible and go to the police instead of thinking she was superwoman. For someone who played life safe, she certainly makes a lot of irrational decisions, but there wouldn’t be much of a story without them.
This book is a thrill a minute and I’d highly recommend it to anyone who likes crime and thrillers, or like Kit, is looking to add a bit of danger to their life.
