Description

Pop music blares from the radio. She sings drunkenly from the backseat. The thrash of windscreen wipers against the driving rain. The screech of tires. A thud.

Naomi and I are best friends.

School runs, dog walks, a shoulder to cry on over a glass of wine - we’re inseparable.

But now my husband has walked out, I need her more than ever.

I know she will help me pick up the pieces.

Because she knows about the lie I told to protect her.

She knows how much I’ve sacrificed for this friendship. 

And she’d never let anyone hurt me.

Would she?

This extraordinary novel will suck you in from the very first moment and keep you gripped until the breathtaking finale. Fans of The Wife Between Us, The Girl Before, and Gone Girl will adore this twisted tale of toxic female friendship.

Lon-winded, slow-moving and NOT gripping

Interesting that the author would promise 'an absolutely gripping and heart-pounding psychological thriller', which she is obviously unable to deliver. A little more modesty would have been in order. The story is too slow-moving, the characters (especially Naomi) act in a way that seems so stupid it is unbelievable, i.e. unlikely. I gave up after about 4 hours of listening, desperate to find something more gripping.

Torturous

I have read the author's other two books and found them relatively entertaining, so I gave this one a shot. Huge mistake. The female leads are horrible, crazy people. The plot, which had a promising start, became downright ridiculous and the madness just went on and on. Still, I tried to keep going. I finally gave up three-quarters through. The narration was good, but no one could have saved this mess.

I couldn’t even get through this one. The story Did not hold together. I am so tired of poorly written book like this. Why are there so many of them. I need to find a good book and this certainly wasn’t it.

Started out well but half way thru...

At first I liked the book but about 3/4 of the way thru it started to get silly and unrealistic. I almost stopped listening but I forged on until the end...I wish I could give a better review but I can’t, it was disappointing:(

Don’t do it

This wasn’t gripping, heart-pounding or thrilling. The characters were awful and I couldn’t wait for it to be over.

Unbelievable

No one would let themselves be blackmailed for an accident in a car they weren’t driving

What a Downer

This book starts with the "closest friend" putting her friend's dog at risk and goes downhill from there. While the author has writing skills, the story has no heart and I could not bear to finish it.

Very Intense Psyco-Drama

Wow. What a story and what a conclusion. Shocking, yet not, for its portrayal in many ways is very real. This could be about a neighbor across the street or the girl next door, walking and talking like a regular person, but hiding private pain and horrors within.
