In After Everyone Else, Bailey and her marriage are tested by a demanding job, new challenges in motherhood, and murder charges when her ex-husband who she hasn’t seen in 20 years turns up dead and she becomes the primary suspect in the investigation.
From the acclaimed author of Before Anyone Else comes a captivating new novel about the lengths we will go to protect the ones we love.
Bailey thought she’d gotten her happy ending. She is married to the man she loves, she has started a family, and her design business is flourishing. But when Bailey’s ex-husband, a famous TV chef, is found murdered with her DNA all over his apartment and body, she is suddenly facing murder charges in a high-profile case. Already burdened by the demands and challenges of marriage, motherhood, and her career, Bailey now must do everything she can to prove her innocence. But it’s the ones she thought would surely be on her side—her enigmatic lawyer and her husband—who might be doubting her innocence the most.
Alternating between the past and present, After Everyone Else chronicles the grip of the past, the challenges of forgiveness, and the resilient love we save for the person we love after everyone else.
