Blurb; She’s your best friend. And your worst enemy…
Beth is a woman running from her demons. Moving to Glasgow to escape the tragedy that ended with the death of her ex-boyfriend, she’s trying to build a new life, to tentatively find new love. But her past is following her, and try as she might, she can’t shake the feeling that someone is watching her every move.
Victoria is unhappily married to Greg. On their wedding day he told her he would love her until they grew old, but now he’s becoming secretive, staying out for ‘business meetings’ and growing distant from his wife. After finding incriminating texts on his phone, Victoria contacts an old friend for support, the one person in her life that has never let her down yet.
Lydia knows she is the only one that can help Victoria. Jumping straight back into their friendship, despite the four-year absence from Victoria’s life, she vows to stop at nothing to help her get revenge. Good friends will do anything for each other, right?
But Lydia has made a new friend in Beth, and now, none of them are safe…
Three women. Three stories. One devastating secret.
My Review; As the blurb says above this story focuses on three women. Beth, Victoria and Lydia all different ladies, different lives… Or are they? All have had their fair share or trouble with men.
The story flicks between the past and the present for each character throughout but this is clearly stated at the start of each chapter so there is no confusion. With the ladies come the men ofcourse… Greg and Lawrence. Now I must say Lawrences character what a horrible excuse for a man, one of those characters that get under your skin and is controlling. I felt sorry for Beth but she is surrounded by some brilliant and supportive friends.
I was more drawn to Beths story personally over Victorias. What she did is an eye opening read and brilliantly written. With this story I learnt that everything links. A brilliant read, contains short chapters which I prefer and is a page turner of a read. A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend. I enjoyed reading this one.
