A superior Lifetime thriller
8 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is more than first meets the eye in this Lifetime thriller. There are some well written unexpected twists and turns but it's kept quite believable and not too far fetched. It's exciting and keeps you entertained till the end. It's a bit more complicated than the average lifetime movie.

Ashley Scott plays a realtor who is going through a divorce from her unfaithful husband and in order to meet the mortgage takes on a tenant (Ivan Sergei) who is nice to her young son for her guest house. But things aren't that simple.

Ashley Scott looks a bit like Cameron Diaz and she is quite watchable. Ivan Sergei has aged and his face looks a bit puffy. Liked the ranch style house it's set in.

Worth a watch.
