Publisher's Summary

A fun vacation game turns destructive, exposing dark secrets, deeply buried grudges, and a shocking betrayal in Nicola Moriarity's intriguing debut.

Four friends...

Joni, Deb, Eden, and Trina have been best friends since high school, sharing a bond that has seen them through their teenage years and into adulthood. But now time and circumstance are starting to pull them apart as careers, husbands, and babies get in the way. As their yearly vacation becomes less of a priority - at least for three of the women - how can Joni find a way to draw the four of them back together?

Four secrets...

During a laughter- and wine-filled night, the women dare one another to write anonymous letters, spilling their deepest, darkest secrets. But the fun game turns devastating, exposing cracks in their lives and the friendship they share. Each letter is a dark confession revealing shocking information. A troubled marriage? A substance abuse problem? A secret pregnancy? A heartbreaking diagnosis?

Five letters...

Late on one of their last nights together, after the other three have gone to bed, Joni notices something in the fireplace - a burnt, crumpled, nearly destroyed sheet of paper that holds the most shattering revelation of all. It is a fifth letter - a hate-filled rant that exposes a vicious, deeply hidden grudge that has festered for decades. But who wrote it? Which one of them has seethed with resentment all these years? What should Joni do?

Best friends are supposed to keep your darkest secrets. But the revelations Joni, Deb, Eden, and Trina have shared will ripple through their lives with unforeseen consequences, and things will never be the same.

    Story
    "Keeps you guessing until the end."

    The narrator was great! She was able to put voices on individual characters. Nicola Moriarty writes in a similar fashion as her sister, Liane Moriarty. Both have a way of keeping a reader wanting more.

    Story
    "Great Book about a group of friends with secrets."
    What made the experience of listening to The Fifth Letter the most enjoyable?

    I loved the narrator. She did a good job with all the voices. Her Aussie accent wasn't to strong it was perfect.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Joanie. She was flawed and real. I could see her in my group of friends.


    What does Candice Moll bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mrs. Moll brings excitement and a great Australian accent. This book was meant to be about Australian friends and I was glad it wasn't an American narrator. Listening to Candice Moll made it feel authentic.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!!! I was walking around the grocery store with my ear buds in. I didn't want it to end. I wanted these girls to be my group of friends.


    Any additional comments?

    Great character development. Very easy read. The book kept me guessing all throughout. I can't wait to read more from this author. I hope audible will acquire her books soon.
