The Marriage Betrayal by Shalini Boland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wow. Now that's a Psychological Thriller.
Faye planned a surprise birthday for her husband in the town where he and his sister grew up. when they get there she realizes he isn't very happy about the trip. The weather doesn't cooperate and then her husband and son end up missing. Her and her BIL follow the clues from where they were last. Her son Dylan's baseball cap is found on the beach. Then blood is found and a DNA shows it is her husband's blood but where are they.
Also her SIL is confronted from people of her past and 1 is not happy to see her at all. I was feeling so bad for them as they kept trying to find Jake and Dylan. Faye and her SIL Lainey are frantic ad keep talking to the police and trying to find more clues as to what happened. Meanwhile the book goes back and forth from the past to the present. So we see what happened to Lainey and her brother Jake as teenagers.
I had a slight feeling as to what had really happened but the very last part f the book was a shocker.
I could not put this book down.
