Thank you to Harper Collins Canada for gifting me a paperback copy of this book to read and share my review with others.



Imagine turning up to your own party, and recognising no one. Your best friend has just created your worst nightmare.

Louisa is an exhausted, sleep-deprived new mother and, approaching her fortieth birthday, the very last thing she wants to do is celebrate.
But when her best friend Tiff organises a surprise party, inviting the entire list of Lou’s Facebook friends, she’s faced with a new source of anxiety altogether: a room full of old college classmates who she hasn’t spoken to in twenty years. And one person in particular she never expected to see again is there – her ex-boyfriend from college, the handsome and charismatic Oliver Dunmore.
When Oliver’s wife Melissa goes missing after the party, everyone remembers what happened that night differently. It could be the alcohol, but it seems more than one person has something to hide.
Louisa is determined to find the truth about what happened to Melissa. But just how far does she need to look…?

One simple Facebook invitation unfolds into something both tragic and monstrous; a story of obsessive love, breath-taking deception and masterful manipulation. 



Wow what a book! If you haven’t had your eyes set on this book be sure to go add it to your TBR list RIGHT NOW! This was the first book I have read by this author and I am thrilled to learn she has another novel coming out later this year! I cannot wait to get my hands on that book!

You will seriously love this book. Full of deception, lies, betrayal, secrets, and a party that leaves so many questions that no one can finds answers to, this book will have you guessing and second-guessing at every turn as secrets are revealed, more questions arise, and not everyone is who they appear. There are many people with something to lose, something to hide, and who can you trust if you aren’t sure who is on your side?

I enjoyed the fast pace of this book and it left me wanting to know more, so of course I had to keep reading and couldn’t put this book down. With an unreliable main character this is a recipe for a great book. Who knows what happened that night, and where Melissa disappeared, as most everyone at the party was drinking so their memories are foggy at best.

This book will have you guessing right to the shocking twisted end, and you’ll love the entire ride!


MY REVIEW: 4/5 stars
