Goodreads Synopsis

They were the perfect couple—but not all is as it seems.

Young married couple Gabriel and Chloé have a picture-perfect life. But when athletic Chloé suddenly drowns, Gabriel is left to grapple with the mysterious circumstances of her death. Brokenhearted, he pours out his grief in a bereavement group and is consoled by photographer Emma. While the two grow closer, Gabriel can’t help but feel Chloé’s presence everywhere he goes. And as revelations about Chloé slowly emerge, he begins to wonder, is Emma really that different?

From prize-winning and bestselling author Amélie Antoine comes a dark and evocative novel that will keep readers guessing until the final moments—will Gabriel be able to move on with Emma, or will the mystery of Chloé’s death consume him?




This book was not what I was expecting.

Chloé and Gabriel have the picture perfect life, until the unthinkable happens and Chloé drowns one day when she is out swimming.
Forced to deal with the grief of the death of his wife, Gabriel seeks solace in a grief support group. It is here that he meets Emma. As Gabriel and Emma grow closer, secrets from Cholé’s past begin to emerge.
This all leads to one mother of a revelation!

There is not much that I can say about this book without giving away major happenings within the story. And I am not about to ruin this book for anyone.
But that twist!!! I don’t think that I would have ever seen the twist in this book coming!!

I would recommend this book to everyone, I’m actually off to get a copy for my shelves right now lol.
I received a copy of this book from the publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.


Just the whole book! lol.

Whilst the writing style took awhile for me to get used to, I really loved the unique way the author has written this book. The story is told through two POV’s, Chloé’s and Emma’s. However we get to see flashes of Gabriel’s life, thoughts and feelings through a third person sort of view. Through these flashes we get to learn more about what Chloé was really like and the pain and grief Gabriel is going through.

The characters are well developed and throughout the book the author shows us more about them and their personalities.


There really wasn’t much to dislike about this book. I wish the ending could have been extended a bit, but overall I just completely loved this book!




Amélie Antoine lives in northern France with her husband and two children.

She has always loved writing, particularly stories. In 2011, she published an autobiography titled Combien de temps. Interference is her first novel and was an immediate success when it was released in France, winning the Première Lauréate du Prix Amazon de l’Auto-Édition (Amazon France Self-Publishing Prize) for best self-published e-book. She has since written two other novels.

  1. This looks fascinating, thanks for the review! I agree the cover creeps me out a little bit too, and unlike the feel of the novel as described above, which seems quite sweet and tragic – to lose a spouse in such a way… I love the personal story of the author too, awesome that you included this in the review!
