Liz Cole had one successful novel. She hasn't been able to replicate that success again, but she has one month to write the thriller that could put her back on the bestseller list. 

At the same time, she is struggling to support her husband through a difficult time. His best friend and law partner, Nick has disappeared. The stress of his disappearance could ruin their marriage and their finances. Liz escapes by writing about Beth, her new heroine.

The lines between Liz's fiction and reality begin to blur when her life starts to resemble Beth's. She struggles to figure out what is fact and what is fiction. 

This story line is unlike anything I've read lately. A captivating read! Much love to Crime By The Book for recommending this read! 






The truth can be darker than fiction.

Liza Cole, a once-successful novelist whose career has seen better days, has one month to write the thriller that could land her back on the bestseller list. Meanwhile, she’s struggling to start a family, but her husband is distracted by the disappearance of his best friend, Nick. As stresses weigh her down in her professional and personal lives, Liza escapes into writing the chilling exploits of her latest heroine, Beth.

Beth, a new mother, suspects her husband is cheating on her while she’s home caring for their newborn. Angry and betrayed, she aims to catch him in the act and make him pay for shattering the illusion of their perfect life. But before she realizes what she’s doing, she’s tossing the body of her husband’s mistress into the East River.

Then, the lines between Liza’s fiction and her reality eerily blur. Nick’s body is dragged from the East River, and Liza’s husband is arrested for his murder. Before her deadline is up, Liza will have to face up to the truths about the people around her, including her own. If she doesn’t, the end of her heroine’s story could be the end of her own.
