ABOUT THE BOOK
Best friends forever.
That’s the pact you made.
You’d do anything for her.
And you have.
She’s always had it all.
If you could take it for yourself . . . would you?
Lust, secrets and revenge are at the heart of this irresistibly twisted thriller by the bestselling author of My Husband’s Lies. Perfect for fans of Claire McGowan’s The Other Wife and Adele Parks’s Lies Lies Lies.
What a fabulous book! This is a story about the long life friendship between Jo and Kate from the age of eight up until the present day when they are in their thirties. I am absolutely bursting to talk to people that have read this too because I am quite speechless at the moment, I definitely need a drink in my hand and one on standby!
Jo comes from a Yorkshire family who is a self-made success and they want to give Jo a good education, like they did her brothers, by sending her to boarding school. You get the feeling that her parents’ roots are never far away, her mum buying her clothes just a size bigger to grow into. Their wealth has been hard to earn.
Then there is Kate who comes from an established wealthy family, they are lovely but Kate wants for nothing. Kate has the pony, the exclusive holiday’s and every whim pampered.
The two girls have to share a room together at boarding school at age 8 and become inseparable. Where Jo learns to quickly adapt to survive the taunts, Kate falls victim to them but Jo is always there for her, even all these years later.
Oh wow! I was fascinated with these two women’s stories, the lives they had made and the friendship that they had kept going but there was so much more. Yes, this became one of my talkie books as I became quite vocal at times. I loved the gossip, reeled at the shocks and got to know the real them. Then just when I thought it couldn’t give me any more it bowled me over. They say it’s not over till the fat lady sings, well she gave one hell of a performance! A little belting read!
I wish to thank Beth Wright of Little Brown Book Group for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
