New beginnings. Old rivalries.

Best friends. Bad blood.

Five bridesmaids. One body.

Fans of The Girl on the TrainGone Girl and The Wife Between Us will love this pulse-racing psychological thriller. Once you start reading, you will not be able to stop!

My Review

Well, where do I start with this one? This is absolutely one of the most tangled and twisty books that I’ve read in a long time

We are thrown right into the plot from the start, with the discovery of a body in the pool. Then we go back to the start of the hen weekend, and it all begins to unfold from there. By the time the two timelines join up, we have been taken on a hell of a rollercoaster ride.

It took me a while to figure out who everyone was, and what their link to Holly was, but one thing that they all have in common is that they are all keeping secrets, and there is a multi-layered web of deceit that needs to be untangled.

The characters are very real and authentic. I didn’t particularly warm to any of them, but this adds to the feeling of general distrust of everyone.

A lot of books claim to have a jaw-dropping twist in the plot, but this one has several. The twists just keep coming, and there’s so much going on that it’s impossible to put this book down once you get stuck in.

A completely head-spinning dramatic thriller, this is a book that I’d really recommend to anyone who loves a gripping read.
