Thirty-nine-year-old British photographer and single mom Tess has a good life that revolves around her nine-year-old son Joe and her thriving career. Before long she meets and marries Greg, a charismatic American pediatric heart surgeon, who is soon offered a dream job in Boston along with a part-time teaching position at Harvard. Tess and Joe have a hard time adapting to life in an American city. More worryingly, Tess notices that their new neighbors, and even some strangers, seem to recognize her husband, which he waves off as coincidence. As these strange encounters continue to occur, however, she begins to suspect that something is not quite right.

This book starts off well and hints at various possible scenarios that go off in different directions. Two thirds of the way through though, the main female character really got on my nerves and the ending was a bit tepid for my taste.

This was really disappointing. It had a lot of the elements right for an intriguing story but it plodded very heavily and in the end was truly anti-climatic. I feel cheated of the hours I spent on this book. I had started to read another of hers a few weeks ago and had given up shortly into it because it was plodding and overwrought. Sorry, Lucy.
