THE BRILLIANT NEW PSYCHOLOGICAL DRAMA FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE PERFECT GIRLFRIEND
Two women. A dying wish. And a web of lies that will bring their world crashing down.
Nina and Marie were best friends-until Nina was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Before she died, Nina asked Marie to fulfill her final wishes.
But her mistake was in thinking Marie was someone she could trust.
What Nina didn’t know was that Marie always wanted her beautiful life, and that Marie has an agenda of her own. She’ll do anything to get what she wants.
Marie thinks she can keep her promise to her friend’s family on her own terms. But what she doesn’t know is that Nina was hiding explosive secrets of her own…

I was a huge fan of this author’s first book so I was incredibly excited to read more from her. I was definitely not disappointed as this was another tense, gripping read which I devoured in a few days – no easy feat when you have three kids in lockdown.
I find I really enjoy stories featuring old friends as there is always so much history involved that I often find the story difficult to guess so reading such a book is hugely enjoyable! This book was no exception as I loved learning more about Marie, Nona and the long friendship they have enjoyed. It soon becomes clear that both ladies have secrets that they have been holding back from the other and it was fascinating to see the previously close friendship unravel. They are both quite unlikeable characters which meant I wasn’t able to pick a side so could enjoy everything as a mutual observer.
The pace and mystery side of the story gradually increases as the story develops until the book is very hard to put down. The easy to read style just draws the reader in and made it easy for me to just relax and enjoy the story. There are lots of twists and reveals which made it hard for me to guess which way things would go. I found I had to keep reading to find out how everything would end.
Huge thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me onto the blog tour and to Rosie from Wildfire for my copy of this book.
