Published in the UK as 'One White Lie'. An addictively readable psychological suspense debut in which a young woman reluctantly agrees to help the couple next door fake the husband's death--but when he winds up dead for real, she becomes the prime suspect in his murder. Twenty-...eight-year-old Lucy King is desperate for escape: from a toxic relationship, a city she can no longer call home, and a past she just wants to forget. Trading her trendy Brooklyn apartment for the rustic charm of a rental cabin in Woodstock, New York, she wants only to live a quiet, anonymous life. When she meets Vera and John, her alluringly enigmatic neighbors, their friendship becomes the balm that heals her lingering paranoia. Yet just as Lucy's starting to think the worst is behind her, the couple delivers a staggering bombshell: they, like Lucy, need to flee their troubles--and the only way they can begin a new life somewhere else is if Lucy helps them fake John's death. Devastated to lose her newfound support system, Lucy reluctantly agrees to be their alibi. After all, she knows a thing or two about the importance of fresh starts. But what begins as an elaborate ruse suddenly turns all too real when John's very dead body is discovered in the location where he was supposed to rendezvous with his co-conspirators following his staged accident. Now, Lucy must figure out who she can trust and where their plan went awry...before she takes the fall for murder.
