About the book
What if your dirtiest secret was exposed to your neighbors, family, and colleagues to see?
Allie is a young mother and up-and-coming photographer who’s struggling to fit in among the mom cliques in the DC suburb to which she’s just moved, when she finds herself in the cross-hairs of a police investigation as a murder suspect.
A flirtatious moment at a neighborhood party. A dead neighbor. And vicious social media posts in her name that Allie swears she didn’t make.
But no one believes her, and someone is out to destroy her marriage, her reputation, her life. As Allie’s world unravels, she must summon all her strength to uncover who is behind this campaign of destruction. Facing the dark secret from her past may be the key to unlocking the truth and unmasking a murderer.
A compelling psychological thriller, I Don’t Forgive You takes you on a twisty ride of one mother who will do anything to protect herself, and the life she has worked so hard to create.
