ABOUT THE BOOK:
Lila Bennett’s bad choices have finally caught up with her. And one of those decisions has split her life in two. Literally.
In one life, she’s taken hostage by someone who appears to be a stranger but knows too much. As she’s trapped in a concrete cell, her kidnapper forces her to face what she’s done or be killed. In an alternate life, she eludes her captor but is hunted by someone who is dismantling her happiness, exposing one secret at a time.
Lila’s decorated career as a criminal defense attorney, her marriage, and her life are on the line. She must make a list of those she’s wronged—both in and out of the courtroom—to determine who is out to get her before it’s too late. But even if she can pinpoint her assailant, will she survive? And if she does, which parts of her life are worth saving, and which parts must die? Because one thing’s for certain—life as Lila Bennett knew it is over.
“I might be a terrible person.”
SO CLEVER! My first book by this author duo and I loved it. Smart and perfectly paced! Lila Bennett is a smart yet ruthless criminal defense attorney who has made some questionable choices in both her job and her personal life. The story takes place in alternate timelines, between two parallel worlds much like two of my favorite books, ‘Dark Matter’ and ‘Maybe in Another Life.’
I alternated between the audio and Kindle version and the audio narrator did an OUTSTANDING job of bringing the character of Lila to life. Lila has just finished a huge trial and must now face the consequences of her past actions. She is kidnapped in one timeline, but her captor demands something very unusual from her.
“Life can change in an instant, Lila. One decision. One wrong turn. One missed opportunity. That’s all it takes. And everything you had could be gone.”
Although I figured out who was behind the kidnapping, it was SO much fun going along for the ride. Would Lila do the right thing with her clients, boss and husband? There were so many people she had wronged in her life, including her best friend and her mother. This story had me on the edge of my seat! I highly recommend the audiobook version for this one, the narrator was fantastic.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable thriller with a clever and creative plot. As the book raced towards a surprising conclusion, I did not want it to end! This was my first book by Liz and Lisa and I can’t wait to read more.
“Maybe all we are is the sum of our choices, each one leading us down a different path, each with its own unique outcome.”
