Poison by Galt Niederhoffer. Published by St. Martins

Niederhoffer explores the fragile bonds of marriage and parenting in her latest book. Cass and Ryan O’Connor had other relationships before they married, each already had children, but somehow they have made their blended family work and seem to have reached the pinnacle of marital bliss. But nothing is ever as it seems, and when small fissures grow into larger cracks, the resulting fallout leaves each wondering where their hearts and their loyalties really lie. This is being billed as a thriller, and I guess if you were living it, you would probably deem it as such. For the reader, however, this comes across as a disturbing portrait at what really lies between the happy smiles and white picket fences of the “perfect” families.
