9781681443089: The Other Child

Thirty-nine-year-old British photographer and single mom Tess has a good life that revolves around her nine-year-old son Joe and her thriving career. Things look even better when she meets Greg, a charismatic American pediatric heart surgeon, on a photo shoot. The two of them are instantly attracted to each other, and it isn't long before they get married.
When Greg is offered a dream job in Boston along with a part-time teaching position at Harvard, they discuss a possible move to America. Tess is initially reluctant about uprooting her son and leaving behind her friends and family. Plus there is an added complication: she is pregnant, something the couple had definitely not planned on. But they agree that this position is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and decide to go.
Greg seems happy to be back in America and the job is even better than he had hoped, but Tess and Joe have a hard time adapting to life in a new city. More worryingly, Tess notices that their new neighbors, and even some strangers, seem to recognize her husband, which he waves off as coincidence. As these strange encounters continue to occur, however, she begins to suspect that something is not quite right. In secret, she starts to look into Greg's past and discovers more questions than answers about the man she has followed across the ocean--the man who is the father of their new baby daughter.
Lucy Atkins follows her acclaimed debut novel with another white-knuckle ride that explores the danger that can lurk within the everyday routines of family life.

From Publishers Weekly:

Suspicions cloud a new marriage in Atkins's gripping sophomore effort. Tess, an accomplished London photographer and the single mother of a nine-year-old son, Joe, meets Greg Gallo, a pediatric heart surgeon. After a whirlwind romance, they marry and relocate to Boston. When Tess becomes pregnant, she's thrilled, but Greg, who had made it clear that he didn't want children, is perturbed and uninterested in impending fatherhood. Tess begins to be troubled by Joe's difficulty in adjusting to his new locale and by an unfriendly neighbor who's obsessed with Greg. Signs suggest something is amiss, including ominous letters left on her doorstep, which Greg can't explain. Tess fears that Greg is withholding information about his past. Her concerns are amplified when another man, Alex Kingman, claims to know Greg, which he denies with visible discomfort. As Tess's suspicions and fear of Greg grow, she finds it necessary to investigate and discover whether Greg is really who he says he is. Atkins (The Missing One) keeps the suspense high to the startling conclusion. Agent: Judith Murray, Greene & Heaton (U.K.). (Feb.)\n
