“I really enjoyed this book. Louise, having moved to a new area, witnesses a woman’s husband being arrested late one evening, the next day she finds the pregnant wife at her doorstep and gradually they become firm friends. However, there is a twist and it is this twist that makes this book really compelling.”
“I enjoyed this thriller and found the main character entertaining. I also like how bits and pieces of her past are sprinkled in, like a crumbs, for us to try and put together what is happening. It’s a page turner and you want to know exactly how everything fits together. This is a great book for anyone looking for a new, addicting thriller.”
