I thought Sandie Jones’ first book, The Other Woman, was incredibly cleaver. But after reading her second, The First Mistake, I am pretty sure this one is just masterful!
The First Mistake is an addictively suspenseful story about a family who seems to have it all. Alice, the wife, married once before, finds true love again with Nathan, the second husband, who seems to emulate what she loved about her first husband, Tom. They have two children and a thriving company which they are about to take globally.
Suddenly Nathan starts to act strange. In ways which Alice cannot and does not want to understand. Would he try and hurt their business? Their family? And if so why?
Alice’s best friend Beth is her rock. She knows all Alice’s secrets. She is Alice’s sounding board. Until something happens and then their friendship explodes. She can’t trust Nathan and now she can’t trust Beth.
Alice only has herself to get her out of a mess she doesn’t really even understand. How strong is she really? Can she force herself to see what she doesn’t really want to?
This story was incredible! There were so many twists and turns my head began to spin even as I was thinking give me more! and more!
Do yourself a favor and add Sandie Jones to your must read list. You will not be disappointed.
