Evelyn Tester is sleepwalking through her suburban life—until a late-night phone call startles her awake. Her husband, a prestigious psychiatrist, has been in an accident. And he isn’t alone.

Suddenly Evelyn’s world isn’t as tidy as she thought. And in the midst of it all is Juliette, not only her husband’s secret lover but also his patient. If news of the affair were to get out, it would ruin more than just Evelyn’s marriage. Although it’s a bitter pill for Evelyn to swallow, protecting her family means staying silent—even if, as she begins to discover, the night of the accident has consequences far more dangerous than the unmasking of an affair.

This was not my typical book choice.  I was stuck in a situation where I had to sit for hours and I had nothing but my phone so looked for something I had gotten from Amazon.  I think I downloaded this book because I was expecting it to be a little heavier on the psychological thriller aspect.  It wasn't.  It was more focused on Evelyn kinda freaking out when she found out her husband was having an affair.

So Evelyn suspects her husband is having an affair, but she has no proof.  Then one night there is an accident and he calls Evelyn to help pull him out of a ditch, and she discovers he's not alone.  She demands to know everything about the woman and basically starts stalking this woman and her family.  Then she has her own affair with the woman's husband.  

If you don't like books about cheaters, this one is not for you.  Overall, I thought it was a fairly decent story.  I didn't like Evelyn though, she was a wacky person with like zero chill.  If you can get it on Amazon Prime or whatever they're doing now, it's a quick easy read.
