The Fiancee is a riveting standalone thriller, set on a bucolic estate, about a captivating young woman who joins a family and threatens to upend their picture-perfect lives.
Summer’s looking forward to a break from hustling for acting work in Manhattan when she, her husband Gabe, and Gabe’s nine-year-old son come to rural Pennsylvania for the annual family get-together at her in-laws’ sprawling estate. The reunion sounds like the perfect escape, until Gabe’s younger brother Nick shows up with his new flame Hannah, who’s an actress as well.
Summer immediately recognizes Hannah from a showcase they once did together, but, strangely, Hannah claims not to know her—and that’s not the only thing that seems off. As Hannah charms the other family members, and Nick announces that he’s proposed to her, Summer doesn’t have much choice but to grit her teeth and bear it.
Not long after guests arrive, the reunion is rocked by tragedy–a family member is found dead. Doctors attribute the loss to natural causes, but a grieving Summer soon becomes convinced there’s been foul play and that the too-good-to-be-true Hannah is involved. Though Summer tries to make Gabe and the others see the light, they keep ignoring her suspicions.
How far will Summer go to expose the truth? As she investigates just what Nick’s fiancée might have done to keep her perfect image intact, she begins to fear that the first death may only be the beginning…
