Thank you to St. Martin’s press for gifting me a copy of this book to read and share my review. All opinions are me own and are in no way influenced.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
When a video call between friends captures a shocking incident no one was supposed to see, the secrets it exposes threaten to change their lives forever.
Molly and Liza have always been enviably close. Even after Molly married Daniel, the couple considered Liza an honorary family member. But after Liza moved away, things grew more strained than anyone wanted to admit—in the friendship and the marriage.
When Daniel goes away on business, Molly and Liza plan to reconnect with a nice long video chat after the kids are in bed. But then Molly leaves the room to check on a crying child.
What Liza sees next will change everything.
Only one thing is certain: Molly needs her. Liza drives all night to be at Molly’s side—but when she arrives, the reception is icy, leaving Liza baffled and hurt. She knows there’s no denying what she saw.
Or is there?
In disbelief that their friendship could really be over, Liza is unaware she’s about to have a near miss of her own.
And Molly, refusing to deal with what’s happened, won’t turn to Daniel, either.
But none of them can go on pretending. Not after this.
This book was interesting from the start and had me hooked at the beginning. A video chat between two long time friends, Molly and Liza, who have grown apart over the years in an attempt to catch up. During the video chat Molly leaves to go check on one of her children, and while she is gone her friend Liza sees something shocking on the video screen – a masked person comes on the screen, and suddenly their connection is ended. Confused and worried about her friend, Liza tries calling Molly, and then when she finally is able to reach her Molly acts as if everything is fine and seems upset and angry with her friend Liza. What is going on?
I went into the book thinking it was more of a thriller type book, but I would categorize it as more of a women’s fiction type novel. This story focuses on friendships and relationships, and how they can change and evolve over time. The story focuses on the friendship of Liza and Molly and how it has shifted over time. Also, the marriage and relationship between Molly and her husband Daniel.
There are so many secrets, lies and betrayal that will keep you interested in the story and wanting to know more and see what happens next. I was curious to find out who the masked person in the video chat was and why they were in Molly’s house in the first place.
Overall, an interesting read.
MY RATING: 3/5 stars
