Behind Her Eyes

By Sarah Pinborough

Our protagonist is Louise, a single mom who needs to move on and get out more. She has an encounter with a seemingly great guy, who turns out to be her new boss, David (oops). After dropping off her son at school she runs into his wife, Adele, and persuades herself it wouldn’t hurt to have coffee with her just this once. She continues to delude herself that she can be friends with Adele while conducting an affair with David, in spite of their marriage that seems perfect from where she is sitting. 

Adele loans Louise a book on getting better sleep through directed dreaming and things start to grow complicated as Louise begins to see that things are not all beer and skittles between David and Adele. 

I did not see the bizarre ending of this thriller coming. I think this is my favorite Book of the Month pick so far.
