About the Book:
Rebecca Wilding, an archaeology professor, traces the past for a living.

But suddenly, truth and certainty is turning against her. Rebecca is accused of serious fraud, and worse, she suspects – she knows – that her husband, Stephen, is having an affair.

Desperate to find answers, Rebecca leaves with Stephen for Greece, Italy and Paris, where she can uncover the conspiracy against her, and hopefully win Stephen back to her side, where he belongs. There’s too much at stake – her love, her work, her family.

But on the idyllic Amalfi Coast, Stephen goes swimming and doesn’t come back.

In a swirling daze of panic and fear, Rebecca is dealt with fresh allegations. And with time against her, she must uncover the dark secrets that stand between her and Stephen, and the deceit that has chased her halfway around the world.



A stunning debut about trust from a new Australian voice

Notes and Opinions: 
This one was great! I am so glad that I got the chance to read it.  This one travels a little and it made it a great book that I think would work for the holidays as well as a great beach read.  I really loved the mystery and Rebecca was a great character. This one is a darker story so it was a great break from a lot of the other books mostly YA that I have been reading.  This was a great debut novel that I couldn't put down. I wish it was longer and I can't wait to check out the author's other titles. 

Go Into This One Knowing:  This was a wonderful debut!
