Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough

Wow!  I literally just finished this book and my mind is a bit blown.  This book had me hooked from the beginning.  I couldn't decide who was crazy.  The husband?  The wife?  And, why couldn't Louise just let it go!?!  STAY AWAY from the crazy.  And, then the ending...I'm struggling with the ending.  I was warned.  The card that came with the book from the Book of the Month club said, "You think you know how it ends?  You're wrong.  I promise."  No kidding!  I am at a loss for it for yourself and decide. :)

Summary from
Louise is a single mom, a secretary, stuck in a modern-day rut. On a rare night out, she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. Though he leaves after they kiss, she’s thrilled she finally connected with someone.
When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar…who says the kiss was a terrible mistake, but who still can’t keep his eyes off Louise.
And then Louise bumps into Adele, who’s new to town and in need of a friend. But she also just happens to be married to David. And if you think you know where this story is going, think again, because Behind Her Eyes is like no other book you’ve read before.
David and Adele look like the picture-perfect husband and wife. But then why is David so controlling? And why is Adele so scared of him?
As Louise is drawn into David and Adele’s orbit, she uncovers more puzzling questions than answers. The only thing that is crystal clear is that something in this marriage is very, very wrong. But Louise can’t guess how wrong—and how far a person might go to protect their marriage’s secrets.
In Behind Her Eyes, Sarah Pinborough has written a novel that takes the modern day love triangle and not only turns it on its head, but completely reinvents it in a way that will leave readers reeling.
“Deserves its own warning label…Avoid any contact with the growing buzz concerning the novel’s ingenious, to-die-for twist.” BookPage
