Description

"One fateful decision. Two unexpected endings. A perfect summer read!" --Wendy Walker, bestselling author of The Night Before

Lila Bennett's bad choices have finally caught up with her. And one of those decisions has split her life in two. Literally.

In one life, she's taken hostage by someone who appears to be a stranger but knows too much. As she's trapped in a concrete cell, her kidnapper forces her to face what she's done or be killed. In an alternate life, she eludes her captor but is hunted by someone who is dismantling her happiness, exposing one secret at a time.

Lila's decorated career as a criminal defense attorney, her marriage, and her life are on the line. She must make a list of those she's wronged--both in and out of the courtroom--to determine who is out to get her before it's too late. But even if she can pinpoint her assailant, will she survive? And if she does, which parts of her life are worth saving, and which parts must die? Because one thing's for certain--life as Lila Bennett knew it is over.

Review quote

"Intriguing...Chapters headed 'captured' and 'free' alternate, each describing a parallel reality...Along with two perfect endings, this satisfying thriller offers food for thought. Flawless pacing will keep readers on the edge of their seats." --Publishers Weekly

"The Two Lila Bennetts is a thought-provoking thriller that will have you thinking about the choices you've made and how your life could change in an instant." --POPSUGAR

"Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke create an imaginative and unpredictable story of modern life, the choices we make and their consequences. The Two Lila Bennetts is an excellent summer read." --Authorlink

"Buckle your seat belt. All by itself, the title of this book, The Two Lila Bennetts, suggests we're in for a ride twice as wild as the average thriller. Co-authors Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke deliver mightily on that expectation. Page by page, chapter by chapter, these consummate storytellers capture our psyche and our breath as they invite us to solve this 'whose-doing-it' masterpiece." --BookTrib

"The Two Lila Bennetts is heart-pounding action from start to finish. It's Sliding Doors with a killer twist. I couldn't put it down!" --Aimee Molloy, New York Times bestselling author

"One fateful decision. Two unexpected endings. A perfect summer read! The Two Lila Bennetts cleverly weaves together two sides of one story in an engaging thrill ride that keeps readers on their toes--and turning pages. Thoroughly enjoyable!" --Wendy Walker, author of The Night Before

"Liz and Lisa have done it again. The Two Lila Bennetts is a deliciously dark tale of regret and retribution, of new beginnings and the road not taken. Sharp, clever, and insidious, this one shines all the way to the pitch-perfect ending." --Kimberly Belle, author of The Marriage Lie

"The Two Lila Bennetts, by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, begins with one of the most intriguing premises that I've encountered in a novel and ends with two jaw-dropping conclusions. In Lila Bennett, Fenton and Steinke have created a tough, complicated character whose life splinters into two very different directions the moment she makes a life-altering choice. Toggling back and forth between each of Lila's fates, Fenton and Steinke masterfully blend both threads together, propelling the stories forward with hand-wringing tension. Clever, unpredictable, and obsessively unputdownable, The Two Lila Bennetts is psychological suspense at its finest." --Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of The Weight of Silence and Not a Sound
