Publisher's Summary

You trusted your best friend.... You shouldn't have.

Vicky Seagrave is blessed: three beautiful children, a successful, doting husband, great friends and a job she loves. She should be perfectly happy.

When she makes a split-second decision that risks everything she holds dear, there's only person she trusts enough to turn to.

But Vicky is about to learn that one mistake is all it takes - that if you're careless with those you love, you don't deserve to keep them....

Critic Reviews

"A compelling page-turner which kept me reading well into the night. This book will make any woman look at her best friend with more than a touch of suspicion...." (Jane Corry, author of My Husband's Wife)
"A brilliant, gripping read. I couldn't put it down." (Claire Douglas, author of The Sisters and Local Girl Missing)
"A page-turner that explores how friendship, mothering, marriage, and events in the past can collide in unexpected and tumultuous ways." (Beth Miller, author of The Good Neighbour and When We Were Sisters)
"A tense and utterly engrossing story." (Tammy Cohen, author of When She Was Bad and The Broken)
"Intriguing and meticulously crafted...the gradual unfolding of consequences is beautifully done.... An accomplished novel by an imaginative story-teller." (G. J. Minnett, author of The Hidden Legacy)

Good start but degenerated rapidly

I thought this book went off to a good start but without wanting to give the plot away, halfway through started to degenerate into chick flick implausible rubbish. I gamely stayed with it but having foreseen the predictable ending, found this hard work.

I don't understand why authors have to introduce a "dark past", usually run parallel to the main "good" storyline, where both come crashing together in the end with the usual fallout but good versus evil winning out as always. I would have returned this book but having managed (against my better judgment) to stay with it felt this would be unfair. I was not impressed; however although the narration was very good.

Not hooked....

I didn’t really understand why the main character let the situation she found herself in get quiet so complicated, if I was the main character in this I would have said something and confessed much sooner, unfortunately I can’t comment further as I got fed up and stopped listening to it.

Made one little mistake? Return to Audible!

The reviews for this title were very good, so it was an easy decision to make to buy it. Unfortunately I have no idea why the reviews were so good. I've given it three and a half hours, and am returning it.

I find that I don't really care what a few middle class Londoners think about getting on the property ladder. I find the narrator's voice jarring, especially her rendition of Amber. In fact I'm so bored by the whole thing that I can't even be bothered to write any more of ...

Great Listen

I was a little confused in the first few chapters but that changed to intrigue. After that I could not stop listening, I had to know how it would work out. Really enjoyed this book.

The only book I have EVER given up on

Maybe I am missing out, and it was about to get good? But I just had to stop. The narration was pretty bad unfortunately, but I could have put up with it (I think) had the story been better. It was taking so long to get going and was really quite boring.

Gripping.

The story is not for the faint hearted. Well written and a good listen. A good psychological thriller and interesting characters. The ending is not an anticlimax. Will look forward to the next book from this author
