When Lake Warren learns that her husband, Jack, is suing for full custody of their two kids four months after their separation, she's pretty certain that things can't get any worse. The upside is that she's working with the Advanced Fertility Center as a marketing consultant, alongside the attractive, flirtatious Dr. Keaton. But the morning after their one-night stand, Lake finds Keaton with his throat slashed and discovers that things can indeed become worse—they can become deadly.

So as not to jeopardize her case for custody, Lake is forced to lie to the police. Having just been intimate with a man who has been murdered, and wanting to protect herself from being charged with the crime, she begins her own search for the truth. Meanwhile, the police start looking at her closely, people at the clinic start treating her with hostility, and strange clues begin dropping—quite literally—on her doorstep, and Lake realizes that she is dangerously close to dark secrets, both about Keaton and the clinic. But can Lake stop what she's started before it's too late?

Journal Entry 2 by wingAceofHeartswing from Mississauga, Ontario Canada on Sunday, February 28, 2010
Lake Warren is going through a messy separation with her husband Jack. After settling for shared custody he is now suing for full custody of their two children. Things, however, are going well with her job at a fertility clinic as a marketing consultant. The fertility clinic specializes in helping the over-forty crowd conceive. When the new doctor on staff Dr. Keaton starts flirting with her Lake responds and finds herself in his bed. But the next morning finds him with his throat slashed and Lake find herself in a world of trouble.

Not wanting anything to hinder her custody case, Lake does not go to the police and indeed lies about her whereabouts. Lake feels the only way out of her dilemma is to find the killer herself. With the police questioning her, Lake starts to question people at the clinic and snoop into clients' files. This seems to put her more and more into danger as she starts to discover some shady dealing at the clinic.

Lake must now keep track of what she has told the police and others and what is the actual truth. Lake is constantly second-guessing herself between what she can tell the police and what she has found out. The reader is kept on the edge of their seat wondering if Lake will slip up and who killed Dr. Keaton and why

This was a wonderful mystery full of deceit, revenge and dark secrets. Several times I wanted to peek ahead and find out who did it. Kate White delivers a real page-turner.
