Be careful what you wish for... Callie has known sadness, and sometimes doubted she would ever have the life she wanted.

When she meets James, also no stranger to grief, it seems as though her luck has changed.

She becomes his wife, and in the process a stepmother to his two sons.

Callie has finally got what she always imagined for herself.

When the police arrest her for murder, the dark tale of Callie's shocking fall from grace slowly unfolds.

But how much is Callie willing to reveal about the choices she made?

If those she cares for the most learn the truth, they will hate her.

Will her secrets be her undoing? Or will she tell the truth, no matter the cost?A compelling psychological thriller with an unforgettable ending from #1 bestseller Kathryn Croft.
