A family drama about trust, betrayal and forgiveness. Kate and her daughter are just getting to the difficult “teenage” years and when Davis Calder moves in next door he seems like the peacemaker they need, a confidante for both who brings calm to the household. However, Davis is not quite the hero he seems and soon secrets will be found out that will tear the family apart. The sense of foreboding builds well in this story of people looking for love and security and having their worlds shattered.

If you like Louise Candlish you might also like to read books by Jodi Picoult, Polly Williams and Diana Chamberlain.

Synopsis

The Second Husband by Louise Candlish

When Davis Calder moves in next door to Kate Easton and her seventeen-year-old daughter Roxy, neither has any idea of the devastation about to be unleashed. With Kate struggling to accept her daughter’s independence and Roxy getting more secretive by the day, there's enough family tension to go around already.

Before they know it, glamorous, charismatic Davis is the only one who seems able to keep the peace. Until, one wedding day later, Kate makes a discovery that blows the whole family apart…
