Gripping, thrilling, and a true page-turner of a book. This book is a great easy and fast paced read, perfect for summertime or on the beach. If you love psychological thriller books then you will love this book! This was my first book I have read by Harding and WOW!! What a fantastic read and it won’t be my last from this author! I read this book in just over 24 hours, it was hard to put down because I found myself wanting to continue reading more to find out what would happen next. Lies, betrayal, murder, deception…this book has it all! Plus look at that cover! I LOVE LOVE the cover! So beautiful.
Frances Metcalfe is a married, stay at home mom trying to raise her troubled and often misunderstood son Marcus. He attends an elite private school and is picked on and bullied, singled out from other children. Frances doesn’t feel like she fits in with the other moms, and she is often talked about and being judged by the other moms whose children attend the same elite school. Frances doesn’t have any friends, that is until she meets Kate Randolph.
Kate is beautiful, witty, friendly and she seems to really like Frances. She doesn’t seem judgmental but in fact sticks up for Frances and her son Marcus. Frances and Kate become really close friendly quickly and what’s even better, Kate has a son too! Kate and Frances’ sons become good friends quickly as well, how good can this be?
We soon learn about a woman named Amber. A woman who had previously spent 6 years in jail for her part in torturing and murdering a teenager several years ago. Who is Amber and where is she now?
Trust me, this book is one you want to add to your list of books for the summer!
