Think Real Housewives combined with a twist of CSI. The entire premise revolves around a group of so called friends that all have a lot of secrets best kept hidden. Add in jealousy, betrayal and people who will do anything to get what they want, regardless of who gets hurt in the process. One of them ends up dead and its not difficult to figure out who it will be. The story is interesting enough that you do want to keep reading to figure out who did it, mostly because there are sooo many possibilities.
However, I will say the big reveal is a little farfetched. Since I don’t want to give away the ending, I will just say that type of plan will certainly go awry one day if anyone gets a guilty conscience. One thing I have noticed, is this author does seem to make investigators seem pretty incompetent in her books. Either they don’t seem smart enough to really dig deep or they just some how miss any and all evidence, beyond which is planted anyway. This is the second book of hers where they just seem to buy the so called evidence and believe it, as if the killers are always so much smarter than the cops.
All in all, it is a good way to get lost in a book and escape day to day life.
*I did receive a free advance copy of the book in return for my honest review.
