I never meant to lie. That is, I never wanted to.
They are Phoenixâ€™s First Family: handsome Philip Martin,
son of the sitting Senator, an ex-football player who
carries himself with an easy grace and appears destined
to step into his fatherâ€™s seat when the time is right;
his wife Marina, the stylish and elegant director of
Phoenixâ€™s fine arts museum; and their four-year-old
daughter Amabel, beautiful and precocious and beloved.
Finn Hunt is working a dull office job to pay off her
college debt when she meets Philip and charms Amabel. She
eagerly agrees to nanny, thinking sheâ€™s lucked into the
job of a lifetime. Though the glamour of the Martinsâ€™
lifestyle undeniably dazzles Finn, her real pleasure
comes from being part of the family: sharing quick jokes
with Philip in the kitchen before he leaves for work;
staying late when Marina needs a last-minute sitter; and
spending long days with Amabel, who is often treated more
like a photo op than a child.
But behind every faĂ§ade lurks a less attractive truth.
When a young woman approaches Finn, claiming a connection
with Philip and asking Finn to pass on a message, Finn
becomes caught up in a web of deceit with the senate seat
at its center. And Finn isnâ€™t exactly innocent herself:
she too has a background she has kept hidden, and under
the hot Phoenix sun, everything is about to be laid bare.
