I read this book not realizing that it was part of a series of books. This book tells the story of Emma Hamilton, her husband and two children, as they embark on a new life in London. With her husband working around the clock, Emma becomes increasingly lonely. To combat this, she finds work with her sister as a makeup artist, which helps pass the time. The family’s newfound happiness is quickly interrupted when Emma’s husband, James, starts receiving suggestive text messages, and to make matters worse, Emma herself starts to receive aggressive and threatening messages. The book goes on to deal with the issues of suspicion and lack of trust in a marriage, more than the issue of the stalker.
It also touches on the lives of her new friends in London, and her sister’s desire for fame and fortune as a TV presenter.
While it has a completely predictable ending, it is a light read and perfect to pass away a few hours. It can definitely be read as a standalone book without the need to have read the earlier titles.
