SI­MON & SCHUS­TER, $30

Ac­tor Char­lie Carter Buchanan’s wed­ded bliss is shat­tered the night she catches a glimpse of hus­band Oliver on a dat­ing app. While she tries to con­vince her­self it’s just a hand­some looka­like, she knows it will be near im­pos­si­ble for her mar­riage to re­cover. Af­ter all, Oliver’s busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties in­creas­ingly drag him away from home — and worse, his pro­file photo is out of their hon­ey­moon al­bum. As the signs of be­trayal cre­ate a snow­ball ef­fect in her life, Char­lie con­fides in friends she knows she can trust. Or can she? And when there’s a sus­pi­cious death, sud­denly Char­lie dis­cov­ers po­lice have her in the frame. Au­thor Pip Drys­dale fol­lows her im­pres­sive de­but The Sun­day Girl with an­other busy, mind-bend­ing tale guar­an­teed to make read­ers doubt al­most every­thing and ev­ery­one they hold close. With re­liance on so­cial me­dia prom­i­nent through­out, it should be thought-pro­vok­ing for a gen­er­a­tion of dig­i­tal net­work­ers. CA­RINA BRUCE
