Dr. Gregory Weber appears to have an enviable life. He's a renowned clinical psychologist residing in an elegant home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with his wife, Liv, and their two kids. But Gregory feels increasingly disconnected. His marriage is strained, his children are distant, and he can’t stop fixating on an unforgivable mistake he made when he was seventeen. Something no one else knows about.


So when an unscheduled client named Mira starts to appear in his office each week with knowledge about his past, Gregory quickly grows obsessed with her. Is she a new patient? A secret referral from a colleague? Someone connected to his teenage transgression? 


As his attraction for Mira grows more intense with each session, so does her probing scrutiny of him. Soon Gregory’s professional boundaries begin to dissolve, and he becomes the patient, desperate to uncover his connection to this mysterious woman and find out what she wants from him.


In searching for the answers, Gregory risks losing everything that matters: his career, his family, and his mind.

What people are saying...

"Intriguing, atmospheric, and masterfully written, Wednesdays At One hooked me from the first scene. I'm still thinking about this layered and gripping thriller."

Lisa Unger

New York Times bestselling author of Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six

“A rollercoaster of a novel. Twisty and surprising, you won't be able to put this one down.”

Katie Sise

bestselling author of The Break

“A therapist with a troubled past. A marriage dying in its shadow. And a mysterious new patient who sparks the hope of healing. But who is she? And why does she seem to hold this power? Wednesdays at One takes a poignant deep dive into the muddy waters of secrets and regret, forgiveness and loss. Miller aims straight for the heart with every twist and turn. A book to leave you breathless!”

Wendy Walker

bestselling author of All Is Not Forgotten and Don’t Look For Me

“What secrets would you protect above all else? That is the question at the center of Miller’s debut, Wednesdays At One. A taut psychological thriller about family, friendship, and the price we pay when our mistakes come back to haunt us. You will inhale it in one gulp.”

Julie Clark

New York Times bestselling author of The Lies I Tell and The Last Flight

“In Miller’s tautly crafted debut novel, Gregory’s buried crime literally begins to haunt and undo his present. But wasn’t Gregory’s seemingly tidy life already unraveling? In this riveting psychological thriller, Miller astutely explores the powerful tensions between the desire to be known and forgiven and the terror of being revealed.”

Victoria Redel

author of Before Everything

“A terrible secret harbored by a successful clinical psychologist propels this moving, eerie thriller. In rapturous prose, Miller captures the way truth can just as easily break us apart as heal our deepest wounds. Unputdownable.”

Erica Ferencik

author of The River at Night, Into the Jungle and Girl in Ice

Why Zibby Loves It…

Sandra A. Miller’s WEDNESDAYS AT ONE is the perfect summer thriller because it’s not just about a mystery that needs resolution. It’s also about the emotional aspects of family life, what it means to be a parent of teenagers, how to navigate an imperfect relationship with a child, what to do when life isn’t satisfying but should be, and the power of conversation to heal all wounds.

Sandra does a great job of creating tension and suspense; I felt my shoulders tense as I held my breath trying to figure out what was happening and why. Through her accessible, breezy prose, the reader forgets he or she is even reading. It’s a full-body immersion into storytelling with no flowery sentences as distractions. It’s a direct infusion of plot into pores.

Gregory, the protagonist, is believable in his flaws, dashed hopes, confusion, and frustration. He’s the vehicle for all of our collective malaise as a society today. When his past comes to the fore, we find ourselves confronting demons and wondering about the other directions life could have taken us. The fact that he’s purportedly a mental health expert and yet struggles himself makes this even more poignant.

I loved reading about Greg and his family. I loved the issues, the scars, the things they wouldn’t want friends and others to necessarily see — but we get to. And I loved losing myself in the narrative.

This book is about the dashed dreams and moments that define our future — and yet it is inspiring in its ability to overcome even the most devastating moments, from a teen daughter’s scowl to a tragic event.

It is, quite simply, the most perfect summer read.
