A perfect divorce. A new flame. And a deadly obsession.
Nadine and Jake Saunders were married in their teens. Tied to one another by a night of passion that resulted in a pregnancy neither could turn away from.
Now, years later, their children have all flown the nest and the pact they made as teenagers – to give one another the freedom to pursue their own dreams – has resurfaced.
But freedom comes at a price …
While Nadine and Jake begin to untangle their lives from one another, Jake embarks on a passionate affair with a beautiful woman, Karin Moyes. What he doesn’t know is the dark history Karin shares with Nadine.
As lust spirals into dangerous obsession, Jake must break free from Karin. But he must also ask himself how well he ever really knew Nadine. What secret is she hiding? The truth, when it is revealed, could destroy them all.
Laura Elliot is the mistress of characterization and plot driven drama.
The Betrayal will keep you bewitched to the very last page.
I would hate to think what would happen if this family had a pet, Karin is an absolute loon.
A tale about family and true love this read had me thinking about my own youth of discos and mirrorballs, and also about the time I ‘mitched’ off school to sneak into the hotel where Status Quo were staying. Oh how different my life could have been.
The Betrayal had me guessing and wishing and hoping, it is a truly riveting book. I have now read three of Laura Elliots books and all are a delight to read.
My only moan… the names of the twins .
This is a thriller that will make you think about the choices you make and the people you involve yourself with.
