Synopsis:

“How well can you really know another person? How far would you go to find the truth about someone you love?

When Julia learns that her sister has been violently murdered, she must uncover why. But Julia’s quest quickly evolves into an alluring exploration of own darkest sensual desires. Becoming involved with a dangerous stranger online, she’s losing herself…losing control…perhaps losing everything. Her search for answers will jeopardize her marriage, her family, and her life.”

Second Life by S. J. Watson

While this was a good thriller, it was not nearly as intense as Watson’s debut. The ending is a tad too predictable for comfort. Similarly, Julia’s compulsion for answers and her involvement in her sister’s life borders on just plain disturbing – and not in a good way. Ultimately, Julia’s poor decision-making and the predictability of the ending made this a novel that left me disappointed.
