I gaze at my husband’s once handsome face, so still and pale in the hospital bed. The doctors say I should keep talking. He might be able to hear me even after the terrible accident that left him fighting for his life. But all I have to whisper to my husband is I know what you did.

Every day I wave my husband Damon off with a kiss and a smile, drive our precious children to school, and make sure our house is pristine before preparing a delicious meal. I pretend I’m not filled with fury that he once nearly destroyed our perfect life. It’s important to carry on as normal.

That is, until the accident.

My husband was hit by a car. It was pouring with rain. Nobody saw what happened. But the police are asking questions…

Do they know about the terrible argument we had that day?

Do they know about the text message I sent, telling someone to Delete everything ?

And do they know that no one is happier that my husband is in a hospital bed, than me?

Revenge with a side of intrigue!

Damon, a charming handsome man, has been hit by a car. The driver didn't stop to help. 999 has been called and the witnesses are all unsure who hit him or the color of the car that did it. The rain made everything more difficult for the cops investigating the hit-and-run. Now, Damon is in a coma and he might not survive.

Marla is Damon's wife. She has been fighting time with any cosmetic procedure available to keep herself young and pretty. Her children are almost adults. She is day drinking wondering what it's going to happen to her marriage.

Sonya has a soon-to-be teenage son. She is a therapist and she is upset her 1 o'clock is a no-show. She is thinking of what's going to happen when her son doesn't want to spend time with her any longer.

Athena is at her first ultrasound to check on her pregnancy. Her boyfriend is a no-show to the appointment. Is this her future?

The Truth About the Accident was a quick read. The alternating chapters by the three women plus a mystery woman were captivating. There is also a dual timeline that guides the reader until the time of the accident giving us multiple twists.

Cliffhanger: No

4/5 Fangs
