She's a liar. She's a stalker. She's in your house.
When Claire sees Hannah Wilson at an exclusive Manhattan hair salon, it's like a knife slicing through barely healed scars. It may have been ten years since Claire last saw Hannah, but she has thought of her every day, and not in a good way. So Claire does what anyone would do in her position—she stalks her.
Hannah is now Mrs. Carter, living the charmed life that should have been Claire's. It's the life Claire used to have, before Hannah came along and took it all away from her.
Back then, Claire was a happy teenager with porcelain skin and long, wavy blond hair. Now she's an overweight, lazy drunk with hair the color of compost and skin to match. Which is why when Hannah advertises for a housekeeper, Claire is confident she can apply and not be recognized. And since she has time on her hands, revenge on her mind, and a talent for acting…
Because what better way to seek retribution—and redress—than from within the beautiful Mrs. Hannah Carter's own home?
Except that it's not just Claire who has secrets. Everyone in that house seems to have something to hide.
And now, there's no way out.

    Didn’t have high expectations when starting this book, but it ended up being a great read! Looking forward to reading more of the author’s works; love when that happens:-)
  • Very twisty

    I will say this is the first book i have read since i was in high school three years ago. I never really got into reading but this is one of the books that will start my love for reading. I really enjoyed the two major twists in this book. The only reason i did not give it 5 stars is because i feel as if the whole back story should have been told first rather than pausing the scenery to tell more of the back story. Other than that i loveeeeddd this book!
  • Great read!

    I read this in two days! I couldn’t put it down once I got past the first quarter. I enjoy a great plot twist but I felt it could have been better or maybe had the main character been a little easier to root for, I’d have felt different. But all in all, I definitely enjoyed this read and it was well worth it.
