A shocking crime during a Costa Rican vacation exposes the secrets of a wealthy, troubled couple in this gripping novel by the author of It Was Always You . . .

Kate and Calvin are on the trip of their dreams in Costa Rica, hoping to heal their marriage after years of difficulty and loss. When they meet a young newlywed couple at their resort, an attraction develops between the two couples that threatens to disrupt both marriages.
