Underneath – Andie. M. Long ✶✶✶✶✶


Lauren Lawler’s life is visually perfect. However husband Niall seems to have forgotten she exists. Running a Vintage shop on Ebay and meeting her best friend Monique for coffee and shopping, Lauren feels settled but bored. Collecting her nine year old son Joe from school one day, she discovers that the new mum at the gates is her old school foe Bettina. Lauren is initially wary, but encouraged by Niall, attempts to be friendly, getting involved with the school’s summer fair so that Bettina can meet other parents. This throws Lauren into working with Seb, an outwardly nerdy looking teacher who turns out to be a hidden attraction. As Niall continues to be distant, Seb’s attentions become ever more tempting. Bettina says she is back escaping a violent husband, but best friend Monique doesn’t buy it and warns Lauren to be careful. As a vendetta threatens everything Lauren has taken for granted, she has to discover who she can trust. But how much does anyone ever really know about those around them, what’s underneath…
Wow. Where do I start? I managed to devour this in just two nights.. I really enjoyed reading this one. A big thanks to TBC and the author for allowing me a copy in exchange for a review. This book had me hooked throughout! It starts off chick-lit, drama, lies and love then soon changes into a mystery, thriller and suspense ending… I didn’t expect the outcome until all was revealed and I was shocked! I even had to break away and go give my daughter some cuddles. Brilliant easy to read, fast paced and written well story. I would highly recommended to you all… One for the woman readers definitely with a TWIST towards the end… I was not disappointed at all.. Give it a try, see what you think. A well deserve five star story that I devoured too quickly (oops) Enjoy, I did.
