Publisher Description

REESE’S BOOK CLUB PICK | #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“This fast-paced read has everything you could want in a thriller: secret identities, a mysterious boss and a cat & mouse game that kept me guessing the whole way through.”—Reese Witherspoon

Evie Porter has everything a nice, Southern girl could want: a perfect, doting boyfriend, a house with a white picket fence and a garden, a fancy group of friends. The only catch: Evie Porter doesn’t exist.


The identity comes first: Evie Porter. Once she’s given a name and location by her mysterious boss Mr. Smith, she learns everything there is to know about the town and the people in it. Then the mark: Ryan Sumner. The last piece of the puzzle is the job.

Evie isn’t privy to Mr. Smith’s real identity, but she knows this job will be different. Ryan has gotten under her skin, and she’s starting to envision a different sort of life for herself. But Evie can’t make any mistakes--especially after what happened last time.

Because the one thing she’s worked her entire life to keep clean, the one identity she could always go back to—her real identity—just walked right into this town. Evie Porter must stay one step ahead of her past while making sure there’s still a future in front of her. The stakes couldn't be higher--but then, Evie has always liked a challenge...

“One of the few times I've read psychological 'thriller". I wasn't feeling "thrilled " at any point in the story. I was engaged enough to want to figure out who Mr Smith was but after that mystery was revealed the whole story was tied up in a neat bow and I felt a bit let down. Wasn't bad but just thought it was a bit flat . It could possibly be a good movie ..wish I would have cared more about the Lucca/ Evie and Ryan but their relationship felt 2 dimensional.”
Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“I went in pretty much blind to this one. When I read the blurb months ago I honestly didn’t think it was going to be my cup of tea. But I’m so glad I went in blind after I had completely forgotten the blurb. It was entertaining, funny at times, thrilling, kept me guessing. The twists actually surprised me which is rare anymore. I really enjoyed it!”

Expressionless Face“I often wanted to not finish this book because it's slow. I couldn't connect with any of the characters. The flashback chapters were a little unbelievable and it seemed like it just interjected the story.”
