Pete Riley answers the door one morning and lets in a parent's worst nightmare. On his doorstep is Miles Lambert, a stranger who breaks the devastating news that Pete's son, Theo, isn't actually his son; he is the Lambert's', switched at birth by an understaffed hospital, while their real son was sent home with Miles and his wife Lucy. For Pete and his family, life will never be the same again. The two families, reeling from the shock, take comfort in shared good intentions, eagerly entwining their very different lives in the hope of becoming one unconventional modern family. But a plan to sue the hospital triggers an official investigation that unearths some disturbing questions. How much can they trust the other parents or even each other? What secrets are hidden behind the Lambert's' glossy front door? Stretched to the breaking point, Pete and Maddie discover they will each stop at nothing to keep their family safe. They are done playing nice.-- Publisher's description.

Stay-at-home dad Peter Riley's world is turned upside down when he learns that Theo, the two-year-old boy he thought was his son, was switched at birth with his real son. Peter and his partner, Madelyn Wilson, meet the other parents, Miles and Lucy Lambert, who initially seem to feel the same way they do about not switching the children back. While Miles is more comfortably off than Peter's family, the boy he and Lucy are raising, David, has special needs due to brain damage he incurred at his premature birth. Theo, although also a preemie, is healthy except for some behavioral problems that Peter attributes to his age. As the families share time together, this psychological thriller develops into a drama involving a battle between the couples for custody of Theo. Readers will be surprised at the twists the story takes and by an ending they won't see coming. Recommended for psychological-thriller fans who enjoy family dramas. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
