Until tragedy strikes and Rose is the only suspect. Now, having spent nearly five years behind bars for the murder of her best friend's child, Rose is just weeks away from freedom. But is she really reformed? Her probation officer Cate must decide whether Rose is remorseful for Luke's death, or whether she remains a threat to society. As Cate is drawn in, she begins to doubt her own judgement. Where is the line between love and obsession? Can justice be served and, if so ... by what means?

I'm not sure The Woman Before Me qualifies as a thriller, but it is an interesting psychological study into how some people grow up damaged when they don't feel loved and valued by the people who brought them into the world. Ruth is such a person: lost, manipulative, selfish, jealous. She's a mostly unlikeable character, yet I couldn't help seeing the little girl inside who was still looking for love and acceptance. The story itself offers a decent mystery, wrapped in Rose's sadness.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in reading. The plot pulls you in and keeps you captured. I couldn't put this book down at all.
