In a departure from her popular Bailey Weggins series, Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Kate White delivers a top-notch, nail-biting thriller. Manhattan marketing consultant Lake Warren's personal complications make her a compelling character, and the nonstop action leads to a deliciously scary conclusion on a dark and stormy night.
Forty-four-year-old single mother Lake Warren is trying to rebuild her life after divorce when her ex-husband blindsides her and files for sole custody of their two children. Furthermore, Lake's marketing work at a private fertility clinic is proving complicated. When a handsome doctor at the clinic invites her to his place after a business dinner, she accepts and spends a night of reckless abandon, only to awaken to find the doctor viciously murdered. Fearing her presence at the crime scene could cause her to lose her children, Lake flees without notifying the authorities. Now a killer is after her, and she doesn't know who to trust as she delves into the secrets of the fertility clinic and gets closer to a killer. (HARPER, Mar., 352 pp., $24.99)
