Synopsis from Goodreads: If you could make one simple choice that would change your life forever, would you?

Passionately in love, they embark on a dream honeymoon to the tropical island of Bora Bora, where they enjoy the sun, the sand, and each other. Then, while scuba diving in the crystal blue sea, they find something in the water. . . . Could the life of your dreams be the stuff of nightmares? Suddenly the newlyweds must make a dangerous choice: to speak out or to protect their secret. After all, if no one else knows, who would be hurt? Their decision will trigger a devastating chain of events. . . . Have you ever wondered how long it takes to dig a grave?

My Review: This book tells you the end first and then jumps into the past to tell you how things got there. So, have you ever wondered how long it takes to dig a grave? That is where we start this thriller. Erin is digging a grave and mulling over how much time she has to do it. This book was crazy and while I found some of it to be unbelievable I still couldn’t put the book down. I liked Erin immediately and despite the times she made some completely ridiculous choices, I still rooted for her. Mark was a little off though and I wish that aspect of his character had been a little bit more fleshed out. This book kept me hooked from the very first line and if you like thrillers this one is worth checking out!

*I received this book from Netgalley and Ballantine in exchange for an honest review*
