From the bestselling author of The Social Affair comes a new riveting, powerful psychological thriller which offers a savage look into a utopian cultish society where beauty and perfection are valued at all costs.
Widower Tom Anderson is a savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Problem is, one is a lonely number. Thankfully, he solved for X by finding the perfect woman. It wasn’t easy. Tom is very specific. He has to be.
Having checked ‘find trophy wife’ off his list, life was moving along swimmingly. Until that perfect woman let it slip—she has a past. One she kept hidden, almost perfectly.
Sure, she lied—she fudged the numbers. Most women do.
Now, Tom has buyers’ remorse and according to cult rules only two options: get rid of her—or single-handedly erase her past.
She’s a liar. But she does keep house well. And she makes a mean lasagna.
Decisions, decisions. Goodreads Synopsis
This companion novel to The Social Affair is everything that was missing in the previous book. I adored The Social Affair, but was left wanting so much more back story on the church. Britney has created what looks like a dream community. There are like minded people, everyone has every material possession they could want (and more!). It’s a beautiful world from the outside, albeit very Stepford Wife-ish. Just as the Stepford Wives weren’t all they seem to be, same goes for those in the New Hope Church. There was the perfect amount of suspense and will keep you on your toes.
Another great work by Britney King and I can’t wait to see where she goes next!
